A new and shocking version of Robert Louis Stevenson's
classic tale of depravity, lust, love and horror. On the fog-bound
streets of Victorian-era London, Henry Jekyll's experiments with
exotic "powders and tinctures" have brought forth his other
self—Edward Hyde, a sensualist and villain free to commit the sins
Jekyll is too civilized to comprehend. When Hyde meets a woman who
stirs his interest, Jekyll fears for her life and decides to end his
experiments. But Hyde has other ideas, and so the two sides battle
each other in a deadly game of cat-and-mouse to determine who shall
be the master and who his slave.
