From Hell (2001)
Set in the Whitechapel area of London and based on the Jack the Ripper murders that rocked London and gave birth to the term serial killer. Prostitutes were being murdered brutally and then the remains were mutilated in grotesque ways. Body parts were missing at times giving thought to ritualistic reasons for these murders. Even though the murders were so brutal, the procedures for the disembowelment were done with precision that led Detectives to the notion that the murders were done by a surgeon.
Johnny Depp gives a great performance as the police Inspector who slowly unravels a greater conspiracy to the murders.
Synopsis:In Victorian Era London, a troubled clairvoyant police detective investigates the murders by Jack The Ripper.
