One of the great evocations of that strange lost city of Hollywood 
imagination, the fogbound London of Jack the Ripper. It might almost 
be a continuation of Pandora's Box as a blind man haltingly taps his 
way through Whitechapel past posters announcing a reward for the 
Ripper's capture, a hulking figure prowls in the obscurity, a woman's 
screams are accompanied by animal panting while the camera stares 
blindly into a dark hole in the wall. Huge, feline, softly obscene as 
he builds his sonorous facade of biblical quotations and secretly 
rinses his bloody hands in the waters of the Thames, Laird Cregar 
gives a remarkable portrayal of perverted sexuality, at once horrific 
and oddly moving. Stunningly shot by Lucien Ballard, this is one of 
those rare films - like Casablanca - in which everything pulls 
together to create a weirdly compulsive atmosphere.
