“Actually, I’m just from Heck”

In other news, I watched From Hell last night. Very much like Sleepy Hollow in that Depp was great, the female lead was interesting-looking but not compelling, the cinematography was good, the story was quite predictable and a fine actor was under-used in his role as the bad guy.
I did like how many of the various historical Ripper theories/possible suspects they managed to work into the overall story. That was interesting, as was the secret society stuff that underlit the whole thing — I’ve been a sucker for that sort of thing since the first time I saw the fnords.
