Hands Of The Ripper (Peter Sasdy, 1971)
« on: 07 Mar 2008 - 13:23 »

I saw this solid, if not entirely successful, Hammer flick the other night and quite enjoyed it. The story picks up around twenty years after the ripper murders and focuses on a young girl who becomes somewhat of a test subject for a psychoanalyst; a girl who has murderous inclinations that stem for her childhood, when Jack The Ripper—her father—brutally butchered her mother.

It's tightly-paced and the attention to period detail is fine but there is an underlining ludicrousness that leads to an ultimately unsatisfying whole. The Carlton DVD I watched presents the film in it's original ratio and is anamorphic, though there are some compression artefacts that appear from time to time.

Its one of the gems of latter day Hammer for me Paul. Some good gory sequences and an intelligent script. Loved the poster too.
