Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

British director John Hough has a respectable record in horror, but he's hamstrung by pedestrian plotting in this adaptation of Douglas Clegg's novel. The premise has mental patient Patsy Kensit go on a Lecter-like spree as she assumes various guises to wreak revenge on Patrick Muldoon, the psychiatrist she believes to be the reincarnation of Jack the Ripper, who murdered her in a previous life. Toss in the fact that Muldoon's wife, Amy Locane, is vulnerably sulking on a remote island because of his workaholism and the dénouement becomes thuddingly clear. Played with little enthusiasm and directed with even less.
