Recently completed was the visual aspect of "JACK THE RIPPER" a feature film. It has been given to a sound designer. Sept 5th it will be done and suitable for veiwing. If all goes well it will be premeir at MicroCineFest on Halloween.
In 1993 when the Cult of Blacklips was at its zenith Lost Forever penned the play "Jack the Ripper". It was performed Feb 15th. Shortly after two scenes were shot at Sissys house starring Antony, Lily of the Valley, and Kabuki Starshine. Later this project was shelved along with the partially shot "Blacklips Frankenstein". After the mass suicide in 1995 it was difficult to get people motivated. Not till 1999 was it possible to get back to work.
The entire play was shot along with an additional scene featuring Clark Render, Herr Klunch and Peggy Couch. All the original actors are in it: Lost Forever, Kitty Boots, Poison Eve, James F. Murphy, Johanna Constantine, Sissy Fitt, Hattie Hathaway, Lulu, Whitey and Twinkle. I play Jack. The only cult member not featured is Ebony Jett, who is sadly missed.
Filmed on location at MOTHER and in New Jersey, Vermont, and Pittsburgh. Three of the crucial scenes were shot at MOTHER on 14th street. Its great to see Kitty and others in the bar, flouncing around like old days.
Scott Ewalt says "Unlike any other Jack the Ripper film"
David of Hartford remarked "Don't go high"
Stacey say "Awful"
I can't wait for everyone to see it. Everyone in it is so great. Everyone worked very hard. Besides the new scene there is an incredible soundtrack by ex-stiffs inc. keyboardist Brian Damage. There are 13 new songs. And one you might recognize by the band Beef Curtain, formerly known as "Coke".
By Sept 1st there should be more info and a trailer or 2 on
