Synopsis

It was both opportune and reassuring for invalid Mrs Musgrave and her daughter Alice when the Doctor rented rooms in their house, especially as the city was witnessing a series of brutal murders in Whitechapel. However, as the two women slowly become the victims of cruel intimidation and terror at the hands of their new lodger, they suspect they might be sharing their roof with one of the most evil psychopaths ever known and conspire to rid London and themselves of... .Jack the Ripper.

Hammer's variant of the classic Jack the Ripper story THE LODGER. The situation of a mysterious doctor troubling the owners of a boarding house is specifically referenced in Hammer's DR. JEKYLL AND SISTER HYDE. Of all Hammer's pre-QUATERMASS films, this is the one I personally long to see most.
