In 1888 the people of London are terrified by a series of murders on the fog-shrouded streets, with the only connection being that all the victims were women and showgirls. Around this time, mild-mannered and secretive pathologist Mr. Slade (Palance) rents an attic apartment in the heart of London. Mr. Slade falls in love with dancer Lily Bonnery (Smith), who does not return his affections. As the police search frantically for Jack the Ripper, Mr. Slade comes under suspicion for the murders.
