Ripper Letter From Hell was one of the many post-Scream teen slashers from the 90s and I thought it to be a far better movie than I Know What You Did Last Summer and Urban Legend. Its about a girl (Molly) who survives a killing spree and as a means of dealing with the psychological scarring she enrols in a university course 5 years later, which studies serial killing. One by one her classmates are picked off and the killer's MO appears to be in the same pattern as Jack The Ripper. Its a typical formula slasher but the kills are fun and the plot developments work well.... CUT TO...
Ripper 2 Letters Within picks up with Molly admitted to a mental hospital after the murderous rampage of the first movie. And thats where the connection between the movies ends. This is a really weird sequel that almost feels like it was written as a stand-alone movie and they've rewritten it to cash in with an established audience. Molly is transferred to an experimental facility in Prague where she undergoes a series of mind altering procedures that induces an alternate reality inside the patient's head. And so the movie suddenly adopts the whole Nightmare On Elm Street formula and confuses the audience with "whats real and what isn't". It all becomes a bit stupid and the resolution leaves you all... meh. Some cool sequences but ultimately a scattered and cliched psych-horror.
