Movie synopsis
FROM HELL is a gory detective film cloaked in Victorian-era mystique. The movie shows how the serial killer Jack the Ripper stalked the dark streets of 1888 London, slaying prostitutes and crudely dissecting their bodies. Based on the graphic novel written by Alan Moore and Eddie Campbell, this moody chiller is directed by twin brothers Albert and Allen Hughes (MENACE II SOCIETY, AMERICAN PIMP). Johnny Depp stars as Inspector Frederick Abberline, who smokes heavy doses of opium and drowns himself in absinthe to evoke hallucinatory visions that are his clues to catching the Ripper. Heather Graham costars as the prettiest of the floozies, who wins the muted affections of the Inspector.With plenty of atmosphere and spooky effects, FROM HELL borrows scenery, filming tricks, and sequence construction from a host of popular movies, resulting in a visually interesting--if inconsistent--style. Haunting nighttime shots of the London skyline (actually Prague) bleed into shadowy Tim Burton-like prowls through the damp cobblestone streets; aerial camerawork contrasts with crowded ground-level focuses; and the camera peeks around corners and into foggy windows with stealthy curiosity. What may stand out most in viewers minds after the carnage is through, is the exaggerated use of surround sound, which brings a dreadful sense of reality to the film's gore, making FROM HELL all the juicier.

Editorial reviews

"...The Hughes Brothers' goal here is to make an epic of savagery, and they are brilliant at ambience and details....A conspiracy-theory thriller with brains and a heart..."
New York Times - Elvis Mitchell (10/19/2001)

"...Sensational and accomplished....A horror film of genuine artistry and excitement. The Hughes brothers work with commanding restraint..."
Entertainment Weekly - Owen Gleiberman (10/26/2001)

"...Impressively realized, confirming the Brothers as formidable visual stylists....The shadow-drenched Prague studio sets help sustain a sense of claustrophobia well suited to a tale of endemic corruption..."
Sight and Sound - Andy Richards (03/01/2002)

"...It's a true auteur movie, perfectly in sync with the brothers' previous output and delivered with a dry, subliminal message..."
Total Film - Steve Grayson (03/01/2002)

"...A rich, atmospheric film....The movie feels dark, clammy and exhilarating -- it's like belonging to a secret club where you can have a lot of fun but might get into trouble..."
Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert (10/19/2001)

I loved it, one of depp's best films

I give it 2 thumbs up!! I am a big fan of the main character in this film, and he is great at playing this character. the film scenery is amazing. the plot of this movie puts a wierd spin on Jack the ripper killings and reasons why the unfortunate prostitutes were killed. the time is supposed to be old london (ya know back when the Ripper killings took place). the director did an amazing job of recreating the dark dingy streets, damp dirty back alleys, and buildings of old London. Depp plays the clever detective who is in charge of the investigations of the brutal killings and will not rest until he finds the sadistic killer. lots of killing scenes and lots of mutilated bodies to see. If you have a weak stomach avoid this film otherwise I think everyone should see it. And we all know that johnny depp is an amazingly talented actor, although he plays this charcter well (serious, sensitive, and intelligent) the other actors all did their charcters extremely well also and I seriously dont think they could ever make a film look so real (like old dirty london) and the dialogue is perfect! see this one, its truly fabulous

Nice companion to "Murder by Decree"

If you are a fan of the Whitechapel murders in the fall of 1888 this movie, although very fanciful, is a cool flick to watch as it does transport you to the eerie area of the slums of the east end of London. The carnage is gory and Johnny Depp is great as always.
Coupled with "Murder by Decree" starring Christopher Plummer and James Mason as Holmes and Watson (another fanciful version of the murders), these are two movies dealing with the Ripper that are both must see. They both dwell on the Royal Conspiracy theory making for more intrigue.
The 2nd disc in "From Hell" has some cool alternate endings as well as naration, tours of Whitechapel, and deleted scenes.

From Hell-very good

I saw this movie a while back.
When I watched it again, great take on the infamous murders. Forgot about some details. Excellent cast including Johhny Depp and Heather Graham. Great to compare to other movies on the infamous case.

The 2nd disc in "From Hell" has some interesting delete scenes plus an alternate ending as well as commentary, tour of the Whitechapel set, and more.

From Hell

This is a great movie...a bit on the dark side but great! You'll recognize the "BIG" detective who plays with Johnnie Depp...he's the "BIG" character in all the "Harry Potter" movies, and he does a superb job in this one too. Johnnie Depp's role is rather dark but tender and sensitive. The story is based on Jack The Ripper and is the best one done that I've seen. All scenes are done at night except two - one towards the beginning and one at the end. Even the streets are cobblestone, and the sounds of the carriages and horses on the streets are great. I must add that the scenes of the victims are quite gruesome but not enough to turn your head...just remember you're watching a movie and a well done movie at that! This too is a must see!

Review For: From Hell (DVD, 2002, Single Disc; Lenticular)

As an avid Johnny Depp fan I have seen most of his movies. This movie shows his talent before it blossomed to what it is today. He plays an eccentric role as per his usual style. The movie's plot is unexpected and entertaining. The movie is also of good filming quality for it's year. It is unlike any I've seen and offers a unique take on Old London and Jack the Ripper. It delves into the Freemason group in a different way and offers speculations as to their true intentions and behavior. However, it is missing Depp's usual banter but his character is great none the less. From hell embraces different genres and pulls them all together to make a solid story. It will give you horror, thrill, love, and history. This movie is not one of Depp's best but it is worth watching.
