A good transfer on the Synapse Films Blu-ray for Hammer's late film, "Hands of the Ripper". The extras on here are high quality, as expected from the company. They are, however, relatively short compared to other releases such as "Twins of Evil." The ending is quite stylistic, and it is a pity that (like pretty much all Hammer films) quality is sacrificed for the sake of the budget. It somehow reminds me of The Godfather Trilogy at the end, it is almost operatic, but also cobbled together. You'll just have to watch it yourself to judge it, but entertainment value is not in doubt.
