Jack (Carlee Baker) makes a new friend out of Catherine Eddowes (Crystal Udy).
Produced in collaboration with Regent’s University London, classic Gothic Horror returns with a fresh take on Frankenstein and the Whitechapel murders.
Gothic horror reborn. The film is a colorful and erotic ode to the vintage Hammer Horror way of telling a monster movie, wherein the monsters are not the creatures but their creators.
Jack the Ripper (Carlee Baker) stalks the streets of London, searching for the perfect victims to help Dr. Frankenstein (Barrett Ogden), her master, bring his Creation to life. However, rumors of Frankenstein’s nighttime activities are brewing, and Jack, revealed to be Igor, is tasked with one last foray into the bowels of Victorian London to find the last piece needed to bring Frankenstein’s mad vision to life. A deadly love triangle is sparked between the titular characters, and the image of the legends will forever be changed.
But what is life without love?
Transforming Utah into 1888 London through smoke and mirrors and well designed sets, Creatures of Whitechapel is a throwback to the classic way of telling a horror tale while spinning the well known characters, and what they are, on their heads. Practical SFX, sets, and period fittings all gather into a vintage experience with modern sensibilities. Produced in collaboration with Regent’s University London as part of Rebecca Martin’s (Jonathan’s sister) graduation project, the film came together from concept to filming in six weeks, and World Premiered in Oscar Qualifying Competition at the world famous Sitges Film Festival in October 2016.
A complex character of sympathy and murder, Igor works for her Master, Dr. Frankenstein, to bring forth his Creation. She is able to unleash her fury moonlighting as Jack the Ripper, leading to events no one imagined possible.
Relentless in his pursuit to build his Creation, Dr. Frankenstein will stop at nothing to create her and bring his sick vision to life. Consumed by megalomania and lust, he refuses to get his hands “dirty,” which is what Igor is for.

Beautiful and alluring Mary Kelly knows her way around the rough streets of Whitechapel, but it will be her rescue by an unlikely savior that will lead her towards an unimagined destiny.
Frankenstein’s Creation is one of true beauty and horror. Her heart exposed, and her identity stolen, she is the victim of more than just scientific experimentations.
Tipsy and game, Catherine Eddowes draws the wrong kind of attention while prowling the streets of Whitechapel, leading to an untimely demise.
Insufferably in love with the rapturous Mary Kelly, the Horny man will reveal it to her. Any way he can. Which draws the ire of a certain “noble” woman.
