While Jack The Ripper ruled the streets of London, terror reigned. His crimes were unspeakable. His blood lust, unquenchable. His identity, unknown... until now! Johnny Depp and Heather Graham are riveting in this “engrossing, stylish thriller” (People). Directed by the Hughes Brothers (Dead Presidents, Menace II Society), From Hell “grips tighter than a chokehold and cuts as deep as a knife.” (The Washington Post)

Cast & Crew
This wry, atmospheric procedural spawned by a real mystery would be thorny enough without also being an adaptation.
It has the lush decrepitude of an autumn compost heap or an old Hammer werewolf flick.
Plays the enigma game out fully and well.
Restores chill to an earlier meaning.
Victorian England has never seemed more alarmingly alive than it does through the eyes of the brothers Hughes.
Johnny Depp, who continues to be our most adventurous anti-Hollywood movie star, is thoroughly convincing, Cockney accent and all.
An instant classic.
