Movie Info

Jack the Ripper's rampage has all of London gripped in fear -- no matter how many constables patrol the streets, streetwalkers continue to turn up dead. On the night that a fourth woman is killed, the mysterious Slade (Jack Palance) rents out the attic of William and Helen Harley. Later, he meets their niece, Lily Bonner (Constance Smith), an actress. While he intrigues her, his behavior and obsessions arouse suspicion that Slade could be Jack the Ripper -- and Lily his next victim.

  • Jan 03, 2009
    Another one of those great Black & White old school films, This one Jack Palance plays a great part as Jack the Ripper, never prove he's the ripper, but we the watchers of this film know better. But he's fallen for a girl, and a detective from Scotland Yard has also fallen for her, give you one guess on who is going to win the girls heart. Its one of the better parts that I have seen Jack play. My copy came in a two pack, the other movie was A Blueprint for Murder, Get and enjoy this pair, I did 4 Stars. 3-19-13
