Jack the Ripper is an iconic figure in real life horror stories, and he's a go-to menace for horror flicks. The upcoming film RAZORS from Ian Powell and Karl Ward also calls on Jack, but in a way that's certainly unique. Updating the legend to make him more of a Freddy Krueger-ish figure, they will resurrect his reign of terror in a modern day setting. Check out the trailer below!
Here's the synopsis.
While attending an intensive writing workshop held in a crumbing Victorian building, young writer Ruth Walker is challenged to write the ultimate horror movie by enigmatic screenwriting guru, Professor Richard Wise. But what are his motives? What secrets are hidden inside the ancient building? And are the knives Ruth has discovered really those used by notorious serial killer Jack the Ripper?
Ruth was told that the box of knives must never be opened, but the box goes missing and the killings begin. As the ghost of a young Victorian girl haunts Ruth and her fellow screenwriters, the Ripper of legend rises to renew his murderous spree. As bodies begin to pile up, it appears that everyone trapped in the building has a connection to the original mystery….
RAZORS stars Kelby Keenan, Thomas Thoroe, Kunjue Li, Josh Myers, Vincent De Paul, Georgia Maguire, Khan Bonfils, and Andrew Shire. Find it on DVD and VOD on October 18th.
