Jack the Ripper Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

One of the better efforts from prolific cult director [[Performer~P234856~Jesus Franco~jesusfranco]], this Swiss-German horror film stars [[Performer~P38429~Klaus Kinski~klauskinski]], in his final film for Franco, as the notorious Jack the Ripper. A respected doctor by day, Kinski bloodily dismembers London prostitutes by night, until the local Inspector's girlfriend ([[Performer~P12340~Josephine Chaplin~josephinechaplin]]) goes undercover to catch him. Full of graphic gore and nudity, the film is likely to appeal to horror buffs more than Kinski's usual fanbase, but his is a mesmerizing and quite effective performance. [[Performer~P123515~Herbert Fuchs~herbertfuchs]] and [[Performer~P234854~Lina Romay~linaromay]] are among the Franco regulars in the cast, with Fuchs turning in an amusing cameo as a would-be extortionist. ~ Robert Firsching, Rovi
