Movie Reviews

Very Light on Conspiracy theories
Craig A. SAUNDERS | woodbridge, va | 05/12/2004
(2 out of 5 stars)

"As my title says ,this DVD was a rehash of the murders,not enough on the Conspiracy theories part for my taste ,but the scenes of the crime scenes then and now was interesting but not enought o carry this DVD"
The Horror, the horror
T. A. Hansen | 05/04/2004
(1 out of 5 stars)

"This DVD is just horrible. Badly produced, laughingly shot, poorly narrated. It even gets its facts wrong about the Jack the Ripper case. A waste of money at half the price."
Mediocre documentary...
D. Colley | England | 08/26/2006
(2 out of 5 stars)

"...made even more insufferable by poor narration. Why they couldn't narrate this documentary in a faster, clearer tone is beyond me. The slow grating OTT narration belongs in a hammy horror film not in a serious documentary.

If you can get beyond this and the cheap cliché re-shoots of Jack walking the cobblestone streets with a gladstone bag then the contemporary shots of the crime scenes are fascinating to those who have not been to Whitechapel and wish to see how things have changed (and see how things haven't changed) since the days of 1888.

There are better documentaries out there on the Jack the Ripper subject - in particular the History one.

"I am not a ripperologist so I found this interesting and informative. The narators voice at first seemed grating but by the end was fine. The presentation is not slick but is good enough.

I purchased this at less than five. At that price it is worth it if you just want some initial background material."
