Murder By Decree

Murder by Decree (1979)

Jack the Ripper is making the Whitechapel District of London his blood-soaked killing grounds by viciously cutting up prostitutes and taunting the police. No one can unmask this heinous villain...except for Sherlock Holmes. The greatest detective of the Victorian age matches wits with the first modern serial killer in this ingenious effort from Bob Clark, the man who went on to direct "Porky's" and "A Christmas Story".
