JACK THE RIPPER BLU RAY REVIEW
In 1888, Jack the Ripper is on his killing spree. Scotland Yard Inspector O'Neill is pleased to welcome to London his old friend Sam Lowry, a New York City detective who has come to visit him and is only too happy to help out with the case. Sam becomes attracted to Anne Ford, a modern woman for the age, but her guardian, Dr. Tranter doesn't quite approve. The good doctor also seems to be out when the Ripper murders occur. As the population edge ever loser to taking the law into their own hands, the police slowly close in the killer.
Jack The Ripper arrives on Blu ray for the first time from @severinfilms This is one of the ripper films that I had never had seen before. As a huge fan of movies based on the Whitechapel murders I really enjoyed this one. Considering the small budget they had to work with, this movie looks fantastic, with its atmospheric fog filled cobbled streets, giving it a true eerie victorian feel. This story is loosely based on the whitechapel murders and differs from previous ripper movies as the motif for the murders are significantly different. I watched the uk cut and Severin's release of this looks clear and detailed. The audio was crisp and clear throughout.
Overall this is another welcomed and fantastic release that I would highly recommend. The single disc version will be out early this year. Special Features:
Audio Commentary With Co-Director/Co-Producer/Co-Cinematographer Robert S. Baker, Screenwriter Jimmy Sangster, Assistant Director Peter Manley, Moderated By British Horror Historian Marcus Hearn

Meet Lynette. She's Marcus' girlfriend...and she's sick...of Marcus...but she's about to catch another bug. You'll have to see the film to find out what it is. Follow us and get to know Lynette better.
Played by the AWESOME and talented Jessica Reitz. We're going to pretend we're important and give her an Oscar. It might not mean anything, but for what she went through on this film, she deserves something nice!
Meet Marcus...he's trying to get a promotion to save his relationship....but that will change when the "little black things" show up. You'll have to see the film to find out why. Follow us and get to know Marcus better.
Played by the one and only Julian Peck who was in RGF's first-ever film over 15 years ago. Watch Julian crank out the crazy in his last short film performance.
William Suff, also known as the Riverside Prostitute Killer and the Lake Elsinore Killer, is an American serial killer. Suff raped, tortured, stabbed, strangled, and sometimes mutilated 12 or more sex workers in Riverside County, beginning in 1986. On January 9, 1992, Suff was arrested after a routine traffic stop. In 1974, a Texas jury convicted Suff and his then-wife, Teryl, of beating their two-month-old daughter to death. The Texas Court of Criminal Appeals later reversed Teryl’s conviction but upheld Suff's in Suff v. State, finding insufficient evidence to convict her as either the primary actor or a principal in their baby's murder. Though Suff was sentenced to 70 years in a Texas prison, he served only 10 years before his 1984 release on parole. Described as a mild-mannered loner, Suff worked as a county stock clerk who allegedly delivered supplies to the task force investigating his killing spree. He liked to impersonate police officers and cooked chiliat office picnics. It was alleged that he once used the breast of one of his victims in a chili contest and won. #creepy#horror#horrorobsessed#ghost#paranormal#aliens#halloween#dark#scary#horrormovies#scarymovies#serialkiller#horrormoviefacts#horrormoviefan#spirits#psycho#psychopath#slasher#killers#killers
One night, when I was maybe 10-12, I had trouble falling asleep. My bedroom was the entire top floor of our house with my bed and such being on the left side and storage closets and a play area being on the right. I was lying in bed when I heard a noise from the other side of the room and see a rocking horse begin to rock. It was sitting just outside one of the storage closet doors. It proceeded to rock its way halfway across the room and stopped dead under the ceiling light. At this point I was freaking out and just buried my head under my blankets and never peeked out again until morning.
It was all confirmed to not be a dream as the rocking horse was still in the middle of my room when I woke up. Furthermore, I got a stern reprimand from my parents for being up out of bed playing with my toys well past my bedtime. Their bedroom was directly below the storage closet/play area and had heard the creaking of the rocking horse shuffling across the room.
