From Hell

Synopsis: It is 1888 in London, and the unfortunate poor lead horrifying lives in the city's deadliest slum, Whitechapel.

Yet things somehow do when their friend Ann is kidnapped and they are drawn into a conspiracy with links higher up than they could possibly imagine. The kidnapping is soon followed by the gruesome murder of another woman, Polly, and it becomes apparent that they are being hunted down, one by one. Sinister even by Whitechapel standards, the murder grabs the attention of Inspector Fred Abberline, a brilliant yet troubled man whose police work is often aided by his psychic abilities.

They're gonna kill every one of us.

Who is this Albert anyway?

Who cares about Albert

and Ann's troubles?

What are we gonna do?

We can't stay clear

of the Nichols boys forever.

They say that they held

poor Martha down...

...and watched her bleed

until she passed out.

Then they cut her throat.

McQueen is mad.

He enjoys hurting women.

It's insane that they want 4.

How are we gonna get 4?

Not with my old cunny.

I'd be lucky to get four pence.

Behave yourselves or bugger off.

You can bugger off.

We work, girls.

We work the streets harder than ever.



All right. We can do it here, but hurry up.

-The bobbies are tracking us tonight.


Gotta get the old man hard first.

Give it here. I'll put it in meself.

-Is that in?

-Of course it is. Come on.

It's not.

You got it stuck between your legs.

No, I haven't. Come on.

I knows it when I feels it.

That's mine, Polly.

That's my money.

I could pop your eye out.

The customers wouldn't mind.

They don't mind if a whore can see.

-What's that you got there?

-What've I got here?

What have I got here, Constable?

Only a little thing.

Only a little thing to you,

but a great thing to me.

Move! Or I'll bash that smart mouth.

You're a dead woman.

Lovey, he won't bother you again tonight.

That's right. Look.

One for the Nichols, and one for me.

Come here.

We'll work the streets together.

I'll keep my eye on you, love.

You pig!

You disgusting pig!

Yeah, I'm a pig.

I'm what's wrong with the world.

Be on your own then.


You don't want the company of a pig!

What the f*** are you looking at?


That was the thing that was in my dream.

-What's it called again?

-Cleopatra's needle.

Cleopatra. She was a beauty, wasn't she?

It was carved 1,500 years
