Jack's Back ★★★ 1987 (R)

When a lunatic is killing Los Angeles prostitutes Jack-the-Ripper style, twin brothers get mistakenly involved (Spader in both roles). One of the brothers is accused of the murders and it is up to the other either to clear his name or to provide the final evidence of guilt. A well-thought out story with enough twists and turns for any suspense buff. 97m/C VHS . James Spader, Cynthia Gibb, Rod Loomis, Rex Ryon, Robert Picardo, Jim Haynie, Chris Mulkey, Danitza Kingsley, Wendell Wright; D: Rowdy Herrington; W: Rowdy Herrington; C: Shelly Johnson.
