Goofs

During the car chase, the model of the blue car changes back and forth. You can see this by looking at the grill, for most of the chase the badge is in the middle, but at one point near the beginning, and once the car is at the cliff edge the badge is in the top right hand corner of the grill.

Quotes

Molly Keller: For a time there I wasn't thinking clearly. I was confused. In limbo. I mean, this is 1888, right? I knew I was Jack. Cunning Jack. Quiet Jack. Jack's my name. Jack whose sword never sleeps. Not the good shepherd. Not the prince of peace. I'm right Jack. Spring out Jack. Saucy Jack. Jack from Hell. Trade name: Jack the Ripper.

Began with promise then quickly degenerated into typical slasher
15 January 2002 | by thealexandersSee all my reviews

¡°Ripper¡± is for die hard slasher fans only, and even they will feel cheated. It does commence with promise, but quickly degenerates. The story centers around a young woman with a traumatic and horrific past. At university she becomes part of a group studying the crimes of serial killers, ¡°Jack the Ripper¡± in particular. Their lecturer presents a chilling introduction to the course, which gives us the hope that this might be a thinker¡¯s horror movie instead of just another ¡°cut ¡®em up¡± slasher. Unfortunately, it does not take long before we are seeing the knife wielded with gusto and the potential for real suspense departing. From here on it is a case of, which one of them will do something stupid and become the next victim. The main characters, who by now have become major crime investigators, are wooden and shallow and at times seem to be taking turns to say their dialogue with no spontaneity at all. I enjoy a good thriller but for me, ¡°Ripper¡± was annoyingly predictable.
