From Hell

We watched the Jack the Ripper film, From Hell, off of cable recently. Based on a graphic novel (comic book) about the Jack the Ripper story, the look of the film was fairly striking. Beyond that I can’t recommend a great deal about the movie.

By focusing on a detective who is trying to find the killer and his relationship with a prostitute that is soon a target of the killer, the film is able to make the movie into something of a mystery. In the end though, I found it to be a sort of cross between a period piece and a slasher movie, with most of the weaknesses of each genre and few of their strengths.

If you are looking for a diverting serial killer movie, this might be right up your alley, but on my scale of 1-100, I rate it simply a 69.
