The Limehouse Golem The Limehouse Golem 

Set in the streets of Victorian London in 1880, Detective Inspector John Kildare (Bill Nighy) is assigned to a case following a string of murders.

John is searching for The Limehouse Golem – a calculating serial killer who leaves his distinctive signature in blood – battling against time before he strikes again on innocent victims.

The crime-thriller movie, based on the novel by Peter Ackroyd, has an engaging storyline that will keep you guessing throughout who the murderer may be, as well a highlighting a variety of topics and history of the era.

There have been mixed reviews on Bill Nighy’s performance in the movie, but as a fan of the actor, I was delighted with his return on top form.
