This adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic gothic thriller stars Phil Daniels as both Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde.
In a secret experiment, the upright and respectable Dr Henry Jekyll splits his personality into two, releasing the fiendish and murderous Edward Hyde.
As Hyde brings about mayhem, terror and death in foggy London, can Jekyll find a way to suppress his monstrous alter-ego, before it takes him over for good?
Starring Phil Daniels as Dr Jekyll / Mr Hyde
“For Edgar, Jekyll and Hyde taps into a very real sense of threat, and that the world out there is a very dangerous place. There’s the question, too, of what we are like, because we continue not just to be frightened about suicide bombers, but about criminals, and about terrible acts of inexplicable violence.”
