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

My Review:
Wanting a style of film I don't usually watch but do enjoy I decided to watch the stalker movie that is My Teacher, My Obsession which is based on an English teacher who starts at a new school. However, when one of the students gets obsessed with him she will do anything to be with him including secluding him from everyone else.

I liked the foreshadowing at the beginning of the movie which matched up to the ending very well and shows how throughout the movie that this was coming up. I also liked how the film showed how the student was getting close to…

My Review:
Being a movie I discovered years ago and completely fell in love with to the point it is one of my favourite movies of all time, I was excited to see that they had finally put this on Netflix so that others could discover it and love it as much as myself. As a result I thought I would re-watch Snowpiercer and give it a review which is fun for me as it is a film in which I really enjoy and feel is very underrated.

I love how this film begins by showing you how the passengers who are on the train that goes around the world are the only survivors of the human race. By doing this it shows how key the train …

My Review:
Having spent a lot of my teenage years watching She's The Man I thought I would give it a watch as I hadn't seen it in a while and loved this film all over again. I love how this film although being about football and being something I am not interested in brings it to an enjoyable place for me as well as having the comedy and romance side to keep me fully entertained.

Having the film show how the girls team was cut from Viola's school and showing how she just wanted to play and would have played on the boy's team showed h…
