The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Miss Osbourne 18 rating

Udo Kier stars in Walerian Borowczyk's delirious erotic fever dream, which re-imagines Robert Louis Stephenson's moral tale as a deranged domestic sex farce.

Horror 1981 91 mins

Director: Walerian Borowczyk

Overview

Taking its cue from the legend that Stevenson’s cocaine-fuelled first draft of ‘Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde’ was burned by his prudish American wife on account of its sexual excess, Borowczyk sets up a chamber piece spanning just one night as Henry Jekyll (Udo Kier) plunges into a bath of chemicals and emerges as the monstrously-endowed Mr Hyde. A masterpiece of surrealist cinema, Borowczyk mischievously flits between violent farce, bloody delirium and erotic frenzy.
