    The Limehouse Golem

    ★★★★

    A psycho-thriller-cum-horror about a serial killer in Victorian London who doesn't follow a particular pattern but leaves bloodied corpses on display in an effort to make a name for themselves.

    Investigating the grim discoveries is inspector John Kildare (Bill Nighy). While looking into possible suspects, the spotlight falls on the husband of theatre actress Lizzie Cree (Olivia Cooke). To add to the confusion, Lizzie is currently under suspicion for the death of said husband by way of poisoning.

    As an adaptation of Stephen King's novel, this is top ties stuff. The core cast of kids are incredible, giving this story the kind of heart we rarely get in mainstream horror. It's uncynical but has enough bit to leave a mark.

    Gosling's directorial debut is a surreal and nightmarish vision of the American dream gone sour.

    Puerile humour, loads of swearing, fuckton of violence. I had a ball with it. Ryan Reynolds owns it as the Merc with a mouth. So many wise-cracking one-liners that hit the mark for me. The running joke about X-Men a particular highlight. Can see the comedy value wearing thin with some people, and that's fine. But it's a riot from start to finish IMO. Also, more Negasonic Teenage Warhead please.
