From Hell is a stylistic trip into the different levels of lifestyle's in the grime of Englands past. Based on entirely true events envolving the notorious Jack the Ripper, From Hell submerges the audience into the muck and grissly sights surrounding the murders of five "unfortunates".

Johnny Depp plays an inspector that is given charge to capture Jack the Ripper. He has a special gift, the ability to forsee the murders. Unfortunately, this is while he dances with the "Dragon", a drug of Absinth, Poison and Sugar cubes. Heather Graham, in the performance of her life up to this point, is an "unfortunate" on the Ripper's list. Does she survive?

I couldn't believe this disc. Its practically perfect. It stands near "Se7en" as far as quality goes. The Reds are stark and the darks merge with the black bars most will see on the top and bottom of your screen. Sometimes, its so dark, that these bars disappear. The yellows are what I agree (with a friend of mine) to be sickeningly yellow. Really well done and the extra's are everything informative you'd want to know about Jack the Ripper. Considering that not much is known in the first place, I would say there couldn't be a better set included.

One nice touch that I liked, for you people with strong stomachs, was the flies buzzing around my speakers. I was actually swatting by my ear before I realized what was going on. You can guess when the flies show up. The sound is fantastic, whether or not you have the DTS setup. If you do, brace yourself for some cool treats. If not, enjoy the movie without a can of bugspray.
