Overview
Director John Brahm's irresistibly unnerving 1944 remake of the Hitchcock silent film about Jack the Ripper is considered better than the original, and one of the finest films about the notorious killer in cinema history.

Not long after a mysterious young "medical scientist" named Slade (Laird Cregar) rents a flat in the heart of London's Whitechapel district, a series of brutal murders begins. But despite the fact that the murder victims are all female stage performers, the landlord's niece Kitty (Merle Oberon), an ingenue, is unfazed by the crimes -- or by the unusual, brooding man in her family's midst. As Kitty coquettishly interacts with a Scotland Yard detective (George Sanders), she becomes Slade's object of obsession in this pulse-pounder that "packs an unsettling punch."
