Johnny Depp hunted him in the film From Hell. Sherlock Holmes has pursued him through the foggy streets of old London town. H. G. Wells chased him through time and hunted him down to modern day San Francisco. Captain Kirk has even beamed down to hunt him in an episode of Star Trek.
There’s no doubt about it. When it comes to the movies, Jack the Ripper and his infamous crimes have provided a very rich seam for film directors to mine. And, boy, have they mined it.
In fact, if you think about it, chances are you’ve seen many films that have, in some way or another – and both directly and indirectly – used the character of Jack the Ripper to scare the pants of their viewers.
But, how much do you actually remember about the films you have seen?
Well, that’s the subject of this quiz.
We’ve set 10 questions concerning the ripper’s many incarnations in the world of movies. Each of the questions has answers that are multiple choice, so the solution will be staring you in the face as you look at the question. The question, however, is – will you pick the right one.
As with all our quizzes you’ll be awarded a certificate from our esteemed Department of Ripperology detailing your score and telling you how well you did in the Jack the Ripper At The Movies Quiz.
We ask you to enter your name to start the quiz just so that we can include it on the quiz. That said, you can, if you so desire, enter an alias – Jack Ripper is proving a very persistent competitor in our quizzes! – and then get your quiz certificate and results under that alias. It’s completely up to you.
You could, as always, add an extra competitive element to the challenge by sharing the quiz with your friends and then comparing certificates to see which of you gets the highest score.
Anyway, the clock is ticking and the quiz awaits. So, when you’re ready….. GO!
