Mr. Utterson, Dr. Jekyll’s lawyer and dearest friend, is helping the police in the crime investigation and looks after Ms. Reilly. The plot turns gloomy when all the evidences point to Mr. Hyde as the possible murderer. Now Dr. Jekyll is in danger and Mr. Hyde must be caught. But the doctor trusts Mr. Hyde.

Soundtrack

There’s been a crime
It’s the second death in a week
There’s been a crime
A strange case for the police
Something’s going on
In the quite streets of London
A man who walks and kills through the night
Never shows his head by daylight
Always hiding in the heavy mist
But now a detail changes the plot
A witness stood on the right spot
A man who no one never saw before
There’s been a crime
It’s the second death in a week
There’s been a crime
A strange case for the police
Something’s going on
In the quite streets of London
A man who walks and kills through the night
Never shows his head by daylight
Always hiding in the heavy mist
But now a detail changes the plot
A witness stood on the right spot
A man who no one never saw before
There’s been a crime
It’s the second death in a week
There’s been a crime
A strange case for the police
Something’s going on
In the quite streets of London
In the quite streets of London
In the quite streets of London

That’s so strange
I know well that place
It belongs to Dr. Jekyll’s
In that I have no doubt
But who was that man?
Digging in his belongings
Storming out the building
Screaming out like a madman
This is Dr. Jekyll’s most precious place
A scientific cabinet where he works
It is a secret place
He keeps it for himself
Nobody enters there
He’s the only one who’s got the key
I must warn Henry, my friend
So, who was that man?
I must find it out
It is a secret place
He keeps it for himself
Nobody enters there
He’s the only one who’s got the key
I must warn Henry, my friend
So, who was that man?
I must find it out
So, who is this man?

UTTERSON:
Ms. Reilly, are you all right?

REILLY:
He’s after me, he’s a madman

UTTERSON:
Who? Who are you talking about?

REILLY:
I never saw such a cruel face
He had a heavy stick
He wants to kill me
His face is marked with death

UTTERSON:
What does he look like?

REILLY:
He’s like a wild animal
Small, strong, evil
He’s the face of the devil
He wears a long black coat
Fear chokes my throat
His face is marked with death

UTTERSON:
Is it the man you saw the other night?

REILLY:
He’s not human
I’m not safe in this place.
Help me, please!

UTTERSON:
Is it the man who killed the woman?

REILLY:
I want to leave this place
Help me, please!
Can you help me?

UTTERSON:
Trust me, I will help you.
Trust me, I will help you.
Trust me, I will help you.

At the first breath of this new life
It delighted me like old wine
I was conscious of a wonderful
Freedom of the mind
Freedom of the mind
I felt younger and lighter than any man
Two opposing natures in one soul
My devil broke out in anger
I began to cry for freedom
Free me,
Free me from this pain
My body is like a prison cell
Which I want to be freed from
And feel again that all is well
Free me,
Free me from this pain
My body is like a prison cell
Which I want to be freed from
And feel again that all is well
I became weak in body and mind
I no longer know who I am
I’m a stranger in my own house
I can only see madness all around.
Now there’s no place for the two of us
I cannot continue I give up
I can’t believe all I had destroyed
But, how to choose
If I win, I lose
Free me,
Free me from this pain
My body is like a prison cell
Which I want to be freed from
And feel again that all is well
Free me,
Free me from this pain
My body is like a prison cell
Which I want to be freed from
And feel again that all is well

A new man walks the streets at night
No chemicals to bring him back
He fell into the devil’s claws
He is not what it was before.
So now I turn to you
I am so afraid to ask
What’s behind your mask?
Is that who you are?
A man is not one, but two
Are you evil or are you good?
Listen to that voice inside
Are you Dr. Jekyll or are you Mr. Hyde?
Late one gloomy night
He put chemicals in a glass
And then watched them boil.
With strong courage,
Drank it all.
Evil written in his face
He bleeds in his own disgrace
He would beg for some forgiveness
But begging is not his business
A man is not one, but two
Are you evil or are you good?
Listen to that voice inside
Are you Dr. Jekyll or are you Mr. Hyde?
A man is not one, but two
Are you evil or are you good?
Listen to that voice inside
Are you Dr. Jekyll?
Or are you Mr…?
Or are you Mr…?
Or are you Mr. Hyde?
