Plot Summary

During the latter half of 1888, a notorious serial killer nicknamed Jack the Ripper terrorises the East End of London by murdering prostitutes in a terribly violent way. Public outrage follows. Chief Inspector Frederick Abberline is assigned to the case, but finds that it is not just a simple murder enquiry. Based on a real-life event, this movie claims to have had access to top secret Home Office files and believe that their ending is the correct solution to the age old mystery. Written by Rhino

Quotes [Chief Superintendent Arnold is complaining to Abberline about the press reports]
Chief Insp. Frederick Abberline: I'm not responsible for the papers!
DCS Arnold: No, you're responsible to me! And I want this case closed, Inspector!
Chief Insp. Frederick Abberline: Yes, and why is that, Chief Superintendent? Mary Nicholls was a shilling whore. She wasn't killed for money, she didn't have any, her neighbours don't remember any enemies, and according to the doctor, she wasn't even sexually assaulted, yet somebody tore her to pieces in the streets!
DCS Arnold: So find him.
Chief Insp. Frederick Abberline: Do you want the killer, or will anybody do?
