The LImehouse Golem

The Limehouse Golem Released in the US Today

The Limehouse Golem is released in the US today in cinemas and OnDemand with cable television providers. Daniel Mays stars as Geroge Flood.

Set on the unforgiving, squalid streets of Victorian London in 1880, our tale begins in the baroque, grandiose music hall where the capital’s most renowned performer Dan Leno (Douglas Booth) takes to the stage. The whimsical thespian performs a monologue, informing his dedicated audience of the ghastly fate of a young woman who had once adorned this very stage, his dear friend Elizabeth Cree (Olivia Cooke); for the beguiling songstress is facing up to her forthcoming death by hanging, having been accused of murdering her husband John Cree (Sam Reid). Lizzie’s death seems inevitable, until Detective Inspector John Kildare (Bill Nighy) is assigned to the case of the Limehouse Golem – a nefarious, calculating serial killer, murdering innocent, unconnected victims, leaving behind barely identifiable corpses – and his distinctive signature in blood. All is not what it seems and everyone is a suspect and everyone has a secret.

The Reviews:

The Guardian: Nighy and Mays make a terrific double act, their relationship nicely balanced between formal frostiness and bickering affection. It’s a pleasure to watch them together.

Mark Kermode: Ripe and enjoyable murder mystery.

The Independent: A Victorian melodrama with all of the trimmings.

Time Out: An entertaining adaptation.

Critical Popcorn: Daniel Mays [is] equally brilliant

ComingSoon.Net: Every single inch of director Juan Carlos Medina’s adaptation of Peter Ackroyd’s novel The Limehouse Golem is delicious.

SciFi Now: This is a richly rewarding riff on penny dreadful horrors with a real wit and bite to it, and it’s a wonderfully chilling treat.

Collider: A devishly good mystery

The Guardian (Peter Bradshaw)

Evening Standard

Little White Lies: This film is a bravura music-hall gothic, with all of 1880s London its theatricalised stage.

The Limehouse Golem – Trailer

TLG

Lionsgate UK has released the first trailer and cinema poster for The Limehouse Golem and it features Daniel Mays as George Flood:

The LIMEHOUSE GOLEM is a gothic murder mystery set in London’s dangerous Limehouse district in 1880. In the style of Se7en or The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, it stars Bill Nighy, Olivia Cooke and Douglas Booth. Written by Jane Goldman (Kingsman, Kick-Ass, The Woman in Black), it is based on Peter Ackroyd’s novel ‘Dan Leno and the Limehouse Golem’ and is directed by Juan Carlos Medina (Painless).

A series of gruesome and bloody murders have shaken the Limehouse community. So monstrous and ruthless are these crimes the press claim they’re the work of ‘The Golem’ – a legendary creature from dark times…

Confronted by a murderer of a yet unknown kind and with no genuine leads, the police put the relatively inexperienced Detective Inspector Kildare (Bill Nighy) on the case, a scapegoat for when the next victim surfaces.

Daniel Mays stars as George Flood along with Bill Nighy, Morgan Watkins, Douglas Booth, Olivia Cooke, and others.

The Limehouse Golem is released in UK cinemas on 1 September 2017 and 8 September 2017 in US cinemas and on demand.
