From Hell: WTF Happened To This Adaptation?

1 month ago

As Marvel and DC forge ahead in cinema, we return to graphic novels for another book vs. movie comparison. Today, we examine a largely forgotten early 2000s film adapted from Alan Moore's acclaimed graphic novel. Set against the backdrop of Whitechapel's real-life killings, the film's fidelity to the source material is scrutinized. It is based on the very real killings in Whitechapel that were later attributed to Jack The Ripper. While both have a lot of truths to them, along with quite a bit of fantasy and conjecture, how close to the source material does the 2001 film get. Line up your suspects as we find out what happened to this adaptation.
