Tom Savini is God
11 June 2001 | by (calif) – See all my reviews

Tom Savini as Jack the Ripper! Right on!! I really enjoy this movie, but it suffers drastically from being shot on video. Too bad, a bit of a larger budget, a few re-writes, and it could have been released theatrically. This movie has some of the goriest scenes I have ever seen, and I like gory films. The dialouge is a bit amaturish, and it does have the air of a student film, but with Mr. Savini's special effects, they more than compensate. So to cut it to the quick: If ya like Savini, watch.
