From Hell (2001) In 1888 London, prostitutes living in London's poor and decrepit East End are being butchered by a killer who has come to be known as Jack the Ripper. Scotland yard Inspector Frederick Abelard and Sgt. Peter Godley investigate the gruesome killings. The evidence suggests that the killer may have had some medical training but there is reluctance in some quarters to the suggestion that a man of education and class could be involved in such atrocities. Abelard has drug-induced visions, from smoking opium or drinking absinthe, that guide him but as the investigation continues, he finds linkages between the aristocracy, the Freemasons and the senior ranks of both Scotland yard and the medical profession. For Abelard, he develops affections for the beautiful Mary Kelly who is perhaps destined to be the Ripper's last victim.

More Movie Taglines:
  • Only the legend will survive.
Movie Quote(s):
  • Sir William Gull: Laudanum is a derivative of opium. Apart from doctors and addicts, not many would be able to detect it. How long have you been chasing the dragon, Inspector?
  • [reading the return address on the package sent by Jack the Ripper] Peter Godley: "From Hell". Well at least they got the address right.
  • [after trying to kiss Abberline and he refuses] Mary Kelly: What? You think I was paying you back? I didn't mean it as business. I'm still a woman, they haven't taken that away from me, not yet anyways! [Abberline proceeds to shove her against the wall and kiss her passionately]
  • Sir William Gull: One day men will look back and say that I gave birth to the twentieth century. Abberline: You're not going to see the twentieth century.
  • Abberline: Why? Sir Charles Warren: Are you questioning my decision? Abberline: No, sir, I just simply want to know why.
Movie Trivia:
  • The late Nigel Hawthorne was originally cast as Sir William Gull. Hawthorne was replaced by Ian Holm when his cancer prevented him from working.
  • The Hughes Brothers originally wanted Daniel Day-Lewis to play the lead role. When that fell through, they interviewed Sean Connery, Jude Law, and Brad Pitt before settling on Johnny Depp.
  • The crew built four blocks of Whitechapel on location in Prague, including half a church.
  • The title refers to a letter sent to George Lusk, the president of the Whitechapel Vigilance Committee from an unknown man who claimed to be the murderer. Instead of a sender's name and address "from hell" was written on top of the letter, and apparently a piece of victims kidney was enclosed.
  • Great care was taken to accurately reproduce the actual sites of the "ripper" murders. Illustrations and actual photographs from 1888 were used. Similar care was used to reproduce the wounds inflicted upon the ripper's victims.
