From Hell

The book

From Hell is a graphic novel by Alan Moore and Eddie Campbell speculating upon the identity of Jack the Ripper. It was first published in 12 issues by Tundra Publishing/Kitchen Sink Press, then self-published in paperback. Taking as its premise Stephen Knight's discredited theory that the murders were part of a vast conspiracy to conceal the birth of an illegitimate royal baby - involving the Freemasons, with Queen Victoria's personal physician Sir William Gull himself wielding the blade - the graphic novel ultimately explores numerous metaphysical themes.

The film

Moore's and Campbell's book was filmed in 2001 by the Hughes Brothers[?]. It has been criticised for changing many details of the original, and performed poorly at the box office, earning only $31.6 million in domestic receipts.
