Plot outline: It is 1888 in London, and the unfortunate poor lead horrifying lives in the city's deadliest slum, Whitechapel. Harassed by gangs and forced to walk the streets for a living, Mary Kelly and her small group of companions trudge on through this daily misery, their only consolation being that things can't get any worse. Yet things somehow do when their friend Ann is kidnapped and they are drawn into a conspiracy with links higher up than they could possibly imagine. The kidnapping is soon followed by the gruesome murder of another woman, Polly, and it becomes apparent that they are being hunted down, one by one. Sinister even by Whitechapel standards, the murder grabs the attention of Inspector Fred Abberline, a brilliant yet troubled man whose police work is often aided by his psychic abilities. Abberline becomes deeply involved with the case, which takes on personal meaning to him when he and Mary begin to fall in love. But as he gets closer to the truth Whitechapel becomes more and more dangerous for Abberline, Mary, and the other girls. Whoever is responsible for the grisly acts is not going to give up his secret without a fight....will they be able to survive the avenging force that has been sent after them from hell?

Comment: (possible spoilers) From Hell tells the story of Jack the Ripper in 1888, possibly one of the most infamous murderers, in an enriched and stylized way pumped up with some good old killing scenes. Johhny Depp plays an investigator in England who can find who the Ripper may attack next in his visions and begins to get close to someone who could be next (Heather Graham plays this next, a helpful prostitute). How he sees these visions? He is a regular opium taker and in his state he sees these gruesome details. The story wanders here and there, yet it's made up in the most part by a rich and darkly exhilarating atmosphere evoked by the Allen and Albert Hughes and their photographer peter Deming, and by some fine performances turned in by Depp, (dare I say) Graham and Ian Holm who plays a hierarchy figure, so to speak. It might not be for all tastes, but for those interested (or those who took interest in the graphic novel) won't be disapointed. One more note: adding the Elephant man may not be neccessary in a movie about Jack the Ripper, but credit is due in having two of the 19th centuries more famous English gentlemen in one film. A-
