Hands of the Ripper

 (1971)

Hands of the Ripper Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

An infant girl, Anna, watches as her father, the infamous "Jack the Ripper," brutally murders her mother. Years later, young Anna is now under the care of a fake psychic and has been forced into prostitution. At the end of a seance one evening, a woman is mysteriously killed. Dr. John Pritchard suspects Anna is the murderer but cannot understand how she could do this unspeakable act. Using new Freudian psychoanalysis techniques, Pritchard experiments on Anna and discovers a shocking secret. The spirit of the "Ripper" is alive and well, and may be possessing his own daughter! Can this evil be stopped before it's too late?

Hands of the Ripper Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Dealing with period ornamentation and dark events, the AVC encoded image (1.66:1 aspect ratio) presentation manages the visual scheme of the movie with confidence. Shadow detail is perhaps a little thick in the deepest areas of low-lit interiors, yet blacks are adequate throughout, preserving textures on costuming and some of the more obscured particulars of Laura's wrath. Colors are stable and fresh, with elegant skintones and rich hues from fabrics and set design. Red blood is also key, maintaining its powerful presence. Detail is quite handsome, offering a close inspection of facial nuances and extremes of gore, while studio sets also convince with their depth. Print damage isn't much of a concern (some nicks and debris are detected), and grain is tastefully managed, adding a filmic appearance.


Hands of the Ripper Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The 2.0 DTS-HD MA track does a fine job managing the film's original sound design, maintaining a balanced crispness despite the limited nature of the mix. Dialogue is confident and clear, managing accents and interplay without any distortion, while extremes of violence and suspense maintain composure, rarely hitting any shrill peaks of discomfort. Atmospherics are healthy. Scoring hits the occasional crackly high, but remains quite welcome, supporting the visual experience with gusto, blended satisfactorily with verbal exchanges. There's depth here with limited means, making the listening event enjoyable.
