Hands of the Ripper

Late Hammer horror with a hefty dose of cod Freud, as Jack the Ripper's daughter grows up to become a sexually disturbed homicidal maniac after seeing daddy butcher mommy. Rees is particularly effective in the role, while Sasdy keeps the tension reasonably high; nevertheless, one can't help experiencing a certain sense of déjà vu, for all the narrative ingenuity.

Gorgeously dressed and interesting psychothriller about Jack the Rippers daughter who stabs people in Edwardian London. Both the innocent but psychotic Anna and the psychiatric trying to help her turn to be complex and sympathetic characters.
