Having seen the movie multiple times, I was very disappointed with the production of this DVD. Scenes have been cut, for example, a mesmerizing nunchaku demonstration from the killer, and some bizarre editing happened: Tom Berenger is beat up by cops in the movie, and that was edited in the dvd, a stripper's dog howls when killed by the psychopath, and that also doesn't appear in the DVD. I am going to sell this ASAP, and buy the much better produced UK edition, which, strangely enough, features all the missing scenes.

This movie is about the sleaze of New York City in Times Square in the early eighties! It has everything from strip clubs to lesbians to drug addiction and... murder! A crazed psychopath is out slashing, and kiling, strippers. Other strippers, start quitting out of the fear of being his next victim, and this makes their agents Tom Berenger and Jack Scalia lose business so they want this guy caught! Berenger's bisexual ex-girlfriend, who he still loves, Melanie griffith has a drug problem which becomes fatal. Billy de Williams is a cop trying to catch the psycho who's been butchering a number of strippers already. When the killer almost kills Berenger's best friend and starts to go after his ex, its up to him to stop the psycho before he strikes again. Great cast and excellent atmosphere for this sleazy thriller/ melodrama! Supporting Cast includes Rae Dawn Chong( Commando, the Color Purple), Janet Julian(Humongous),Maria Chonchita Alonso(Vampire's kiss, Predator 2),Rossano Brazzi( South Pacific) and was directed by the infamous director Abel Ferrara who directed Body Snatchers(1993), Dangerous Game(1993), Bad Lieutenant(1992), King of New York(1990), Ms. 45(1981), and The Driller Killer(1979).One of the best thrillers of the80s is highly underated and highly recommended!!!!

This has been one of my favorite movies for years. I owned an early VHS copy, which had none of the quality or editing issues others report. I haven't had a playback machine for years, and just do On Demand. But, I recently got the Amazon Fire TV stick, and started looking for some of the movies I really loved, but can never find on Cable (like Strictly Ballroom and The Final Countdown). How thrilling to find them available! I can't wait to watch this again, and sincerely hope it isn't edited. After watching the wonderful Amazon Bosch series, with at least an f-word a minute, I'm hopeful they didn't bother to cut anything from this movie. (And come to think of it, Down Dog had tons of sex scenes.) Fear City might be sleazy, but it's also uplifting, and it stuck with me. Tom Berenger at his best. Melanie Griffith was awesome, as were all the supporting cast members, many of whom you will recognize. Never understood why this movie wasn't well known.

Fear City is the follow-up film to 1981's Ms.45 and it's a pretty enjoyable movie. A "kung fu slasher" film starring Tom Berringer and Jack Scalia as owners of a temp agency for strippers. There is a karate serial killer running the streets slicing and murdering strippers on there way to and from their gigs, And Matt Rossi (Berringer) must stop him before the maniac kills his ex-girlfriend (Griffith). Billie Dee Williams plays Al Wheeler, a 42nd St. cop who doesn't like the cut of Berringer's jib. There is a sub-plot about Berringer being an ex-boxer who kills another man in the ring and possibly being connected to the local Mafia. This is a pretty solid movie for Abel Ferrara and one of my personal favorites, Rae Dawn Chong also has a cameo as "Leila" one of the karate killer's victims! Awesome!

I like much of Abel Ferrara's work. This is one of his earlier works and much of what made him a director to see is not happening here.

Here's the scoop. Ex-boxer Matt Rossi (Tom Berenger with really bad hair, and his bud Nick Parzeno (Jack Scalia) run an agency hiring out girls to strip clubs, private parties, etc. Suddenly, the girls from their agency are targeted by a psycho killer and the terror he causes makes everything they had head south. Matt's main squeeze (Melanie Griffith) takes all this so hard she heads back to doing the hard stuff. Add detective Earl Wheeler (Billy Dee Williams), who'd bust them for bad breath if he could, and it all starts to crumble.

Everything. All the little details that made "King of New York" such a great flick are absent here. Ferrara's long time screen writer, Nicholas St. John, must have been still finding his way. This is loaded with really stupid stuff. For instance: Why is Williams questioning Matt on the attack of one of his dancers? He wasn't there and has no motive. Why isn't he questioning her? And why is the killer working such a small herd. New York is huge. Why isn't he spreading it around? This kind of stupidity is replete throughout the film. So little of it makes sense. And would Matt really have a showdown with the killer in the end? What are the chances?

I don't want to come down too hard on this because it IS an earlier effort from a director who went on to do greater works. But this fails at so many levels. Even the acting, by some of note, isn't all that good. The production values are decent enough given the content. The music is stuck in that time, and, like the movie itself, doesn't transcend that time.

If you're a fan of Ferrara's have at it. If not......
