It should be the happiest of days in Dr Jekyll's (Udo Kier) life, as this day, at dinner, he's to announce his engagement to Fanny Osbourne (Marina Pierro), and their families and quite a few of their upperclass friends are already present - including Dr Lanyon (Howard Vernon), who Jekyll has had endless debates with over the years regarding Jekyll's experiments in transcendental medicine. The dinner is of course overshadowed from square one, when the police general present (Patrick Magee) can't stop talking about a brutal murder that has happened in the vicinity. But the occasion really loses all of its glory when one of Jekyll's guests who had to retreat early is found brutally raped and murdered (just like in the case the General has alluded to time and again) in Jekyll's guest room. Chaos ensues pretty much immediately, not at all helped when the General shoots one of Jekyll's employees dead in a case of sheer nervousness. Jekyll in the meantime slips away ... to turn into the ruthless Mr Hyde (Gérard Zalcberg), as who he commits some murders, ties up the General and has (consensuous) sex with the General daughter's before his very eyes - but once he's chased off and cornered, he turns into Jekyll once again and is free of all suspicion. Thing is, the next time he turns into Hyde, Fanny spies on him - which of course puts her in immediate danger ... but then again, she might not be quite the innocent girl everyone has taken her for ...


Much more than other versions of the story, Waleriyn Borowczyk puts the emphasis of his movie firmly on both the sensual and the socio-political aspects of the source material, and even if he strays quite a bit from Stevenson's well-known novella, Borowczyk's approach works quite well taken on its own terms, as does the satirical spin and the director's elegant and self-consciously voyeuristic mise-en-scène. And add to this a top-notch cast of cult actors, and you've got pretty much a must-see movie!
