Editorial Reviews

(1959)Lee Paterson, Eddie Byrne, Ewen Solon. The definitive film about the famed English madman. A psychotic killer commits a series of gruesome slayings in an effort to wipe out prostitution from the streets of London. Brutal and sadistic for its time with the famed 'color' sequence at the films climax. "Are you Mary Clark?" A well acted, solid British production. Upgraded 4-95.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Jack the Ripper Hammer style movie! August 18, 2009
By Bela
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This Jack the Ripper is very well written
& acted. I don't understand the guy who
said it'll put you to sleep? I think it's
great. The Hammer style film & scenery is
very good & the ending has an unusual twist.
They don't make movies like this where you
need to watch & listen instead of relying
on visual effects to keep your attention.
If you like old style hammer horror this
is a great movie to watch. very good.

4.0 out of 5 stars Undiscovered Gem! October 24, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I just watched this movie on AMC and was pleasantly surprised. The opening shot of the film had me hooked. Watching this film it was easy to see that it undeniably had to be influential in the art direction and cinematography for the ripper film "From Hell" (2001), and even for the opening scene in "Time After Time" (1979). This film presents a pretty interesting whodunit story with great acting, great suspense, and great visuals. It also finishes out the story with a pulse-pounding finale. The murder scenes and the (for it's time) blatant sexuality of the "ladies of the evening" garnered it an X rating in the United Kingdom. The film has fine performances, an intelligent script with good dialogue, good humor, and plenty of action. Frankly, I found it to be as relevant, compelling, and as solid as any thriller made today. I was unaware of this film until tonight. Now I'm anxious to add it to my collection on DVD. Highly recommended for fans of the genre. Cheers!

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok obscure thriller. August 7, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I like these kind of movies generally speaking, old obscure mysteries. This movie is from 1959. This one is about another Jack the Ripper typs killer in London. This was shot in glorious and gritty black and white & loads up on atmosphere. It wont be the best film ever but it is a decent effort and will appeal to those that like the Edgar Wallace Mysteries and other obscure who done its.
The DVD from Sinister Cinema isnt bad, a nice average print and contains the color sequence at the end of the movie. I think it is one of those movies to watch on a gray, foggy Saturday mornings and watch this in bed wrapped in a blanket. Worth checking out for those into these kind of movies..

4.0 out of 5 stars ARE YOU MARY CLARK? CLASSIC HORROR! SO-SO DVD! October 14, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
It's hard to complain about the quality of this transfer because those of us who know and love this film will take it any way they can get it. This DVD release is made on demand by Sinister Cinema and doesn't look all that bad, but it's a bit faded in some areas. The foggy background doesn't help much either, but the film is as good as I remembered it to be and the ending is intact with its color sequence.

I had not seen this film since I was a kid and all I could really remember was the ending in the elevator shaft. It's a very good horror film and certainly one of the best dealing with Jack the Ripper. The DVD includes the trailer and the trailer for The Bat starring Vincent Price and the film in decent condition. It will hold you over, but I can only hope that someone will release this film completely restored and remastered.......I'm not holding my breath!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good movie for its time, and filmed on location June 3, 2012
By KarinS
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This movie started a little slow, but I was impressed with the quality. This movie was different from other Ripper movies that he seemed to strangle the victims and there was only a vague hint that he did anything else, but it is from 1959 so things are alot more restrained then, but the voice of the ripper was enough to make your skin crawl. There are plenty of red herrings and suspects in this movie to keep you guessing who it is, and the town thugs that want to take the law into their own hands keep appearing and make life nasty, but in the end what happens to the bad guy is even nastier than I expected.

I am glad I bought the movie I am a big Jack the Ripper fan, and I am a sucker for the old black and white movies so I would say rent it, buy it give it a go.

4.0 out of 5 stars ANOTHER RIPPER FILM December 16, 2010
By AL
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Though this version compares favourably with 'A Study In Terror' from the same period, it does not begin to match either 'Murder By Decree' (Christopher Plummer and James Mason) or 'Jack The Ripper' (Michael Caine). But for its time it still stands up well. Viewers should keep a close eye on the unusual ending...
