Inspector Kildare (Bill Nighy) is assigned by Scotland Yard to investigate one of the most mysterious serial killers that has graced the streets of Victorian London. From cryptic messages left with the victims to a whole host of suspects, Kildare must put together the pieces together before it’s too late.

Director, Juan Carlos Medina, has elegantly pieced this devastating storyline together by investigating each suspect, all whilst building a story of the murders and the possible incentives behind them. By seeing the perspective of each character, it enables a constant element of surprise that keeps the audience guessing.

Creating a believable Victorian London in this day and age is no easy task, but the production and cinematography of this film are flawless throughout, sewing the actors and the scenery into seamless chemistry.
