Toronto 2016: Watch This Splendid Musical Number From THE LIMEHOUSE GOLEM
Juan Carlos Medina's The Limehouse Golem, the Victorian era set horror thriller, will have it's World Premiere here in Toronto Saturday night at the Ryerson. We have a clip with a splendid musical number featuring Douglas Booth to share with you.
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, trademark 'M’. All is not what it seems and everyone is a suspect and everyone has a secret.
The film also stars some ScreenAnarchy faves like Eddie Marsan and Daniel Mays and was written by Jane Goldman who also wrote a couple X-Men films, Kick-Ass and Kingsman. She adapted Peter Ackroyd's novel.
The Limehouse Golem debuts tomorrow night and screens again on the 11th in the Winter Garden Theatre and the 16th in the Scotiabank 3.
