Presented uncut for the first time in the U.S., The Hands of the Ripper will be available for purchase on July 9th.
Directed by Peter Sasdy, the film stars Angharad Rees as Anna, the daughter of Jack the Ripper who witnessed him murdering her mother when she was a child. When new bloodshed occurs, psychiatrist John Pritchard (Porter) suspects Anna is responsible and uses Freudian techniques to plumb her psyche, discovering that she may be possessed by Jack's spirit.
