Movie Info

An enigmatic young man in a London boarding house becomes the subject of suspicion as the infamous Jack the Ripper begins his campaign of slaughter. This remake of the 1926 Alfred Hitchcock silent again features Ivor Novello (also the scriptwriter) in the lead and a far more downbeat ending.

Audience Reviews for The Phantom Fiend

One of those old style mystery films that take every opportunity to cast suspicion on the most obvious character - in this case, a recent immigrant - only to discover that the perp was actually someone else. Yeah, I kinda resent the literary cheat, but plenty of old school went that way, and got away with it. Scandalous. The work still is moody and atmospheric, which is okay, and has Jack Hawkins in an early role, here as a racist.
