In season five of the acclaimed horror series Slasher, series creator Aaron Martin takes us back in time. This season, called Slasher: Ripper, imagines a Jack-The-Ripper-esque killer on the loose in 19th-century Toronto. With each episode, the mystery only grows as the bodies pile up and blood fills the cobble-stoned streets. Now, in this week’s episode, the season gets a little supernatural.
Read the series’ full synopsis below:
Slasher: Ripper takes the franchise back in time to the late 19th century and follows Basil Garvey (McCormack), a charismatic tycoon whose success is only rivaled by his ruthlessness, as he oversees a city on the cusp of a new century, and a social upheaval that will see its streets run red with blood. There’s a killer stalking the mean streets, but instead of targeting the poor and downtrodden like Jack the Ripper, The Widow is meting out justice against the rich and powerful. The only person standing in the way of this killer is the newly promoted detective, Kenneth Rijkers, whose ironclad belief in justice may wind up being yet another victim of The Widow.
