From Hell



From Hell- 2001 Movie- starring Johnny Depp and Heather Graham. Watched it, of course for Depp (I like his work) the movies is loosely based on Jack the Ripper murder mystery. The gory murder scenes make me feel distressed and left me wondering how could one even imagine of killing and above all ripping bodies apart while severing body organs off.
It’s my silly habit of checking out the story line in wiki first and then watch movies. So, I did read full Wikipedia entry on From Hell. This led me to read about the mysterious serial killer of East End London during 1888. A serial killer on prostitutes killing spree, cuts of internal body organs with an expertise of a surgeon and in rigid time frame. It sometimes make me think- what kind of urge is this to cut, slash, spill blood of living organism and revel in doing so?
