The inimitable Klaus Kinski (NOSFERATU THE VAMPYRE, CRAWLSPACE, FITZCARRALDO) assumes the role of the most heinous criminal of modern history - JACK THE RIPPER - in this explicitly savage, wildly erotic version of the infamous tale from Europe's most notorious filmmaker, Jess Franco. Kinski stars as a sympathetic doctor by day who, when night falls, sheds his skin and stalks the shadowy streets of London as the prostitute-murdering Jack the Ripper. While Scotland Yard races to stop his bloody reign of terror, a young woman launches her own investigation and becomes the Ripper's next target. Produced by German exploitation film legend Erwin C. Dietrich and co-starring Franco's longtime muse, the sensual Lina Romay, JACK THE RIPPER is one of the controversial director's finest films, presented here in a lush anamorphic widescreen transfer, freshly struck from a new, glorious HD master. Think you've seen JACK THE RIPPER? Think again...
