The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Miss Osbourne

Unclassified 18+

29 Jun

In this macabre re-invention of Robert Louis Stevenson’s endlessly generative classic, Dr. Jekyll (the immortal Udo Kier) suckles the deep, sickly ecstasies of a co-dependent, conspiratorial amour fou.

  • Miss Osbourne (Marina Pierro) is here positioned as a “Surrealist Woman, one in a long line of ‘heroines of evil’ that Borowczyk celebrated” (Cristina Álvarez López and Adrian Martin).

    Between these twin pillars of performative hysteria, Borowczyk works to find the correct temperature for a “contagion of delirium”, one that steeps its audience in the peculiarly feverish, fragmentary power of Euro-hybrid poetics. With Patrick Magee and Howard Vernon.
