The Limehouse Golem (film review)

Film: The Limehouse Golem
Year: 2016
Genre: Horror, Mystery, Thriller
Starring: Douglas Booth, Olivia Cooke, Bill Nighy
About: A series of murders has shaken the community to the point where people believe that only a legendary creature from dark times - the mythical so-called Golem - must be responsible.

My Review:
Having had my eye on this movie for a long time I decided to buy the movie and give it a watch. With an amazing cast of actors as well this film was a must to watch! So without further ado here is my review of The Limehouse Golem.

The film is about a man called John Kildare who is trying to find out who the murderer The Limehouse Golem is and is investigating the murders. While investigating he also discovers one of the leads wives is going through a trial and by doing so gets involved with her case to try and free her.

I personally really liked this film. I thought it was very well done and kept me guessing throughout about who it was in which was the killer. As well as this I loved how as there was a diary with the Golem's diary of the killings and a sort of confessional without saying who the killer was, it showed who the suspect at the time was with the killing of that days confessional so you could eliminate the killer yourself and see how they could have killed the victims. To me this was an original thing which I haven't seen before in a film and found myself wishing there was more of in films.

I do think seeing the murders more would have been made this film a little better as it didn't really show much of the killings only a few seconds worth which did let me down with this film, the deaths when you did see them were good however and did show some blood which is great.

Overall, I would recommend this movie to those who like thriller movies as well as those who would like Victorian horror films. I can't wait to see this film again and properly look at the clues now that I know who the killer is as well and see if I can piece it together in my head faster than I did this first viewing.

My Rating: 4/5

Adoring the first film and having watched it a few days prior I was excited to see what happens in the second movie and if it would live up to first movie. I love that  Ralph Breaks The Internet continues on from the first movie really well and tells us that it has been six years that the main characters have been friends for and how Vanellope is starting to get bored of her game and wants more excitement in her life. By also showing how Wi-fi became a part of the a
