One of the most anticipated short film projects of 2015 has come to fruition: RIPPER: A BATMAN FAN FILM landed on You Tube this morning, and comic and horror enthusiasts will be pleased!
Official Synopsis: London, 1888 and the Ripper murders are gripping the country. The people of Whitechapel are afraid to walk the streets at night and the police are no closer to cracking the case. Chief Inspector Abberline leads the investigation and with pressure from above to catch the killer, his own demons start to get the better of him… What Abberline doesn’t know is that there is someone out there who wants to help. Someone in the shadows…. watching…. waiting to strike.
Tagline: “There’s worse things out there than Jack the Ripper.”
Writer/director James Campbell helmed this unlikely smack-down between Saucy Jack and The Bat, based on the graphic novel by Brian Augustyn and Mike Mignola: Gotham by Gaslight (1989). While principal photography wrapped in June 2015, a search for the perfect Ripper pushed completion back by several months.
When Campbell procured the talented Bruce Payne to play the infamous fiend of Whitechaple, the entire cast and crew reassembled for a single epic day of shooting. See the incredible results for yourself:
