Exorcist and JTR
 
Has anyone watched this classic scene from the 1973 horror film "The Exorcist" and thought of JTR?



The hat, the bag, the foggy night, the lamppost, the overall sinister atmosphere, etc. It evokes too much of the archetypal JTR look for it not to be anything about JTR!

Have you noticed it always rains in horror movies? (Usually at the funerals, come to think of it...)

I just watched The Exorcist the other night. Saw that scene and didn't think twice. But now that you mention it.....

Now if he was wearing a top hat, all toffs wear top hats.

Or must.

Most movie funerals have rain, horror movies or otherwise.

The whole thing definitely has similarities to the Mary Kelly murder. He goes to the girl's home. He even brings along an assistant, his "Netley." The girl is lying in bed. And she is probably the youngest person (like Kelly) he has ever had to face. He engages in a violent battle, which will be his LAST. At one point, the film even shows him slashing her skin (but with holy water, not a knife).
