First Official UK Trailer for Victorian Thriller THE LIMEHOUSE GOLEM with Bill Nighy & Douglas Booth

THE LIMEHOUSE GOLEM is a horror-thriller film directed by Juan Carlos Medina from a screenplay by Jane Goldman (The Woman in Black), based of Peter Ackroyd’s 1994 murder mystery novel Dan Leno and the Limehouse Golem. Premiered at the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF 2016), the film stars Bill Nighy, Douglas Booth, Olivia Cooke, and Sam Reid.

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 (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 (Cooke); for the beguiling songstress is facing up to her forthcoming death by hanging, having been accused of murdering her husband John Cree (Reid). Lizzie’s death seems inevitable, until Detective Inspector John Kildare (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.
