Hands Of The Ripper (1971)
A Freudian psychiatrist (Eric Porter) covers up for his patient, the homicidal daughter (Angharad Rees) of Jack the Ripper. Peter Sasdy, the director, weaves the psychological elements through the story with finesse, paralleling the sexual tension between the doctor and his patient with the mounting horror of the inevitable outcome.
Viewer Quote: "The murders are sensational and really, really gruesome and they're extra shocking since nearly all victims (all but one, actually) are sympathetic characters you didn't wish this cruel fate for. This is an intelligent film, yet still manages to throw in some pure camp and typical Hammer-brutality! The climax, set in the St.Paul Cathedral's gallery of whispers, is breathtaking and almost hauntingly poetic. Truly one of Hammer's most underrated and sadly forgotten horror-highlights. This film looks fantastic, beautiful but atmospheric - HANDS OF THE RIPPER is a well crafted, entertaining dose of period-Victorian horror."
Starring: Eric Porter, Angharad Rees, Jane Merrow, Derek Godfrey
Trivia: Lynda Baron's character is named after one of Jack the Ripper's real-life victims, Elizabeth Stride, whose nickname was "Long Liz".
