'In each of us, two natures are at war - the good and the evil...'
Philanthropic scientist Jekyll (John Barrymore) has something of a midlife crisis and takes a potion to unleash his darker side - aka Hyde. Barrymore's extraordinary transformation is achieved through performance alone, with shaken hair and expressive long-fingered hands. This seminal horror silent finds new life alongside Blue Roses' (XL records) haunting score which received outstanding reaction at Green Man and Latitude festivals this summer.
