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

Moon Over Soho - Ben Aaronovitch (book review) *contains spoilers*

Book: Moon Over Soho Author: Ben Aaronovitch Genre: Crime, Fantasy, Mystery Published By: Gollancz Published Year: 2011 My Review: Having my colleague let me borrow the second book in the Peter Grant series I was looking forward to see how they would progress from the first book and what supernatural beings that they would have to defeat now. Moon Over Soho  is about jazz musicians who end up dying not long after coming off of the stage and seeming healthy at the time. Feeling that something is wrong they call in Peter Grant to help with the investigation and discover that something supernatural was going on. While this is happening there is a new threat arriving called The Faceless One who is also a wizard but no-one remembers what they look like. Will Peter be able to stop the threats facing London? Personally, I liked this book a lot more than the first book as it was already established also there was more supernatural beings introduced and to worry about in London th

Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZUdy0Cu3f_o My Review: Looking through my movies and wanting something based in space to watch I decided to put on Supernova which is a film in which I couldn't remember at all. Not remembering it made me feel like this was a new movie to me and I did keep me watching all of the way through easily. I like that this film showed how the device in which they discover is able to make people stronger and able to make them younger as well. By also having this device able to reattach body parts it makes the audience worried about how they will get rid o

Walko About:  A young American girl has a chance of a lifetime to visit her ancestors castle in the south of France, only to find that her family is hiding deep, dark secrets about their nefarious past, far away from prying eyes. Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_EARmKIxjxQ&t=82s My Review: Having been contacted by Jude himself about this movie I was rather surprised but excited to review The Incantation which comes out in America later this month. Having only seen the trailer I was not sure what to expect but glad I gave this a watch. The film is about a girl from America who moves to her families castle in France and is met by a vicar who tells her the rules of the household with three rules: no going upstairs, no uninvited guests and keeping decorum. As she stays however she starts getting nightmares about a young girl wh
