Jack the Ripper Returns in ‘Razors’
We all know the story of Jack the Ripper, but is there more to tell? Well, it’s definitely inspired a slew of horror films and today word has come that a new horror is re-opening the case with a twist on the killer in Ian Powell and Karl Ward’s Razors. Thanks to our friends over at Fangoria, we have the official trailer, details and artwork for you below. See what you make of this one?
The film stars Kelby Keenan, Thomas Thoroe, Kunjue Li, Josh Myers, Vincent De Paul, Georgia Maguire, Khan Bonfils, and Andrew Shire.
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 is set for a release in the States on DVD and VOD this October 18th via Breaking Glass Pictures.
There is something a little interesting on the poster art, it states that this is the first in a new horror franchise. Is that jumping the gun a bit or perhaps they have the groundwork laid out?
