i realized this off of one key line in his first solo song in the movie Nightmare before christmas
"And I'm known through out england and france"
That was the epicenter of activity for the jack ripper cases.
Also there was no real Jack skelligton in history, maybe butron was trying to educate the human race?
Any one care to add or counter act my theory? Because so far i think im the only one who's noticed...
Jack Skellington is Jack the ripper it makes plenty of sense why else would Burton put things like that in the songs from the movie it all plays together so well. Also many people said Jack the ripper was a tall man and Jack Skellington is quite tall himself.
I KNOW EXACTLY HOW YOU FEEL! I JUST REALIZED IT YESTERDAY WHILE WATCHING THE MOVIE AND SOUL EATER (at different times) THAT THEY MIGHT BE THE SAME PERSON, theyeven share the same name "Jack"
Jack the ripper is an affamed serial killer :/ not just in soul eater
It also says something about "A guy in Kentucky" and Jack the Ripper was said to have visited Kentucky during his American visits.
Well, I noticed it in the film myself but where are you getting that info from? The part where Jack was said to go to Kentucky during American visits (Since no one actually knows who Jack is it a bit hard to believe he'd go to the American West during that time frame)
I read something a while ago that there was a serial killer in Kentucky who had similar ways of killing as Jack the Ripper. It very well could have been a different person, but a lot of people were calling him Jack.
see, it is sound, we must now go get a statement from tim burton.
Dude! I figured, but i never really thought on it! I listened closely this time ( i haven't seen it since i was 8, i'm almost 15 now.) and i realized that used to be my favorite line! Well, now we know what happened to Jack the Ripper, he's JACK! THE PUMPIKIN KING! (my favorite line now. first time i heard it made me jump. Good movie, though. I LOVE SALLY!)
I love that movie~
WTF IS THAT!
OMG i knew it had to be him! Naughty Naughty Jack! lol
@hhhhh mez lovez thiz movie
I have never seen that movie, but that sounds plausible.
