“Jack the Ripper: The Definitive Story” will reconstruct what actually happened on the night of each murder visiting the original buildings and famous haunts of this legendary butcher as he reigned terror on this community and where many of his victims met their untimely death. As the murders were never solved, the legends surrounding them became a combination of genuine historical research, folklore and pseudo history. This special event challenges the myths and misconceptions that have surrounded this case for so long – making it the most popular unsolved crime mystery of all time.
“Fans of fright – and all things mysterious – can get ready for Halloween with ‘Fathom Thriller Thursdays’ this October and trace ‘Jack the Ripper’s’ steps on a journey back in time, hearing witness accounts, seeing coroner reports and taking the closest look ever at the original police investigation of these infamous murders,” said Dan Diamond, senior vice president of NCM Fathom. “This will change what people thought they knew about the ‘Jack the Ripper’ murders and introduce a new villain, the ‘Masked Butterfinger Butcher’ in the special horror bonus featurette.”
