Ratings Key

= Excellent. The best the genre has to offer.
1/2 = Very Good. Perhaps not "perfect," but undoubtedly a must-see.
★★★ = Good. Accomplishes what it sets out to do and does it well.
★★1/2 = Fair. Clearly flawed and nothing spectacular, but competently made. OK entertainment.
★★ = Mediocre. Either highly uneven or by-the-numbers and uninspired.
1/2 = Bad. Very little to recommend.
= Very Bad. An absolute chore to sit through.
NO STARS! = Abysmal. Unwatchable dreck that isn't even bad-movie amusing.
SBIG = So Bad It's Good. Technically awful movies with massive entertainment value.

Jack the Ripper (1958) (TV)

Directed by:
Frank P. Bibas
David MacDonald
George Waggner

Episodes from the unreleased series The Veil were mixed and matched to create three different feature-length anthology films, which then played on late night TV before landing on video and then DVD. Episodes from JACK THE RIPPER include "Food on the Table," "Genesis," "Jack the Ripper" and "Summer Heat." The other two "films" were DESTINATION NIGHTMARE and THE VEIL. Review coming soon.
