Scream Factory Releasing James Spader/Jack The Ripper film JACK’S BACK in January

SCREAM-FACTORY-LOGOQuite easily one of James Spader’s best roles, 1988’s JACK’S BACK is an entertaining mystery/thriller that has been in need of a good HD (or SD) release. Thanks to the gang at Scream Factory, it looks like that’s exactly what’s coming, with the announcement of a DVD/Bluray combo of the Jack the Ripper tale, hitting shelves on January 26th, 2016. Growing up, I had a VHS copy of this one, wearing it out until it wouldn’t play anymore due to how badass Spader is in it.  It’s most definitely one of my favorite films around and is definitely worth checking out if you haven’t seen it.

One hundred years ago, Jack the Ripper slashed his way through London’s red light district. Now, a modern-day maniac is honoring the event by mutilating L.A.’s ladies of the evening. Has Jack the Ripper been reborn? The police are stumped and the prostitutes of L.A. are scared. The only person with a chance of solving the murders has a problem of his own – he’s the LAPD’s number one suspect.
