Product Description

New York City: It's A Nice Place To Visit, But You Wouldn't Want To Die There!

A blade-wielding psychopath is on the loose, turning The Big Apple bright red with the blood of beautiful young women. As NYPD detectives follow the trail of butchery from the decks of the Staten Island Ferry to the sex shows of Times Square, each brutal murder becomes a sadistic taunt. In the city that never sleeps, he's the killer that can't be stopped!

Written and directed by acclaimed horror maestro Lucio Fulci (ZOMBIE, CITY OF THE LIVING DEAD) and filmed on location in the mean streets of New York City, this is one of Fulci's most savage and controversial thrillers. Now remastered in blood-soaked High-Definition from its original camera negative, THE NEW YORK RIPPER is presented completely uncut and uncensored with exclusive new Extras!

Then I'll puke on its melted remains.
Dan Haberman
It's alright, worth a look, but I'd definitely say you oughta just rent it, even if you really like some of Fulci's other stuff.
General Zombie
That said, however, this has more of a coherent plot than most Fulci films and considerably better pace.

When I first read the reviews about "The New York Ripper" it definitely sounded like a movie that the avid gore hound should check out. Well I couldn't find it anywhere. So I decided to buy it.

While I don't believe it is Lucio fulci's best movie I did find it to be pretty good. It is nothing like his other films with zombies and other creatures from the depths of hell. "The New York Ripper" deals with a maniacal psychopath that slices and dices his way through The Big Apple. Of course being a Fulci film you can expect the usual terrible acting and horrible dubbing, which always makes me laugh, and yes the killer quacks like a duck but the killing scenes are in typical Fulci fashion (GORY!) A woman getting gutted, a broken bottle shoved into the forbidden area, a nice straight blade through a helpless victims eyeball and nipple, and an impressive head shot at the end of the film.

You've heard all the other reviews. The film is seedy, it is misogynistic, violent, brutal and there's plenty of T&A to satifsy fans of the flesh. I found it to be well worth adding to my collection. If you haven't seen a Fulci film before may I suggest "Zombie", "The Beyond" or "City of the Living Dead". If you have seen Fulci films before check out "The New York Ripper". All in all not a bad murder mystery.

Okay, let's try to remember a time when slasher movies weren't so en vogue that Hollywood cranked out a new one every week. Let's try to remember a time when every slasher movie DIDN'T have a fresh, artificially pretty teenage hunk/starlet in the lead role. Let's remember that Fulci was one of the most underrated Italian horror directors out there, and his work was often misunderstood by the masses.
"The New York Ripper" is a slasher film that--upon initial inspection--is mean-spirited, very violent, and misogynistic. But if you view it few times, the plot becomes clearer and the film feels less contrived. The story is quite simple--psycho killer stalks and kills pretty girls--but there are many complicated details and subtle clues that make the slasher's identity a mystery up until the end.
Out of all Fulci's films, this one probably has the most unsettling violence, and there are spots where things drag a bit. But stick with it, and you'll be able to recall a time when slasher films--and horror movies in general--were much more daring than they are now.

This duck don't give a f#$%! We've got lots of blood, nudity, and a Donald Duck sounding slasher. Just some nice trashy cinema for the fellas. Nothing too deep, just high impact violence and sex like only Fulci can give you.

Lots of rippin quack quack
Lots of slashin quack quack
Sleaze quack please quack don't hold back

Brutality in all its shocking beauty

This film is very unique for horror master Lucia Fulci. One of few slasher films that the artist made, this masterpiece takes the viewer through a "who done it" rollarcoatser, Fulci style. As with all Fulci films, it will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very end, and then leave you a little confused. Of course, as Fulci's trade mark, the film has great gore effects. Now uncut and in widescreen the film is even better.

THE NEW YORK RIPPER
[Lo Squartatore di New York]

(Italy - 1982)

Aspect ratio: 2.39:1 (Techniscope)
Theatrical soundtrack: Mono

It's virtually impossible to defend THE NEW YORK RIPPER on any level - the film's up-front misogyny provides director Lucio Fulci with the flimsiest of excuses for several landmark splatter scenes in which beautiful women are stabbed, slashed and razored to death in graphic, lingering detail. Abandoning the Gothic fantasy of his 'Golden Period' (1979-1982) which spawned such miniature gems as ZOMBIE and THE HOUSE BY THE CEMETERY, Fulci's grim examination of the sexual excesses of contemporary New York follows a stereotypically hard-boiled cop (Jack Hedley) in pursuit of a psychopathic killer who's been murdering a succession of women in the Big Apple, most of whom are depicted as prostitutes or depraved sluts with a taste for rough trade. Yeah, it's that kind of a movie...

Despite a mild twist near the end which throws the killer's identity wide open, the plot has few of the intricacies normally associated with the giallo thriller and instead relies on splashy set-pieces to maintain forward momentum. Luigi Kuveiller's hand-held camerawork evokes an appropriately realistic milieu whilst also making the film looked rushed and sloppy (this is the same guy who photographed Argento's baroque masterwork DEEP RED!), while the cast does its best with the ungainly dialogue and amateurish dubbing. The standout is Alessandra Delli Colli, playing the beautiful wife of a rich cripple who records her sexual adventures on audio tape for her husband's pleasure, until she finds herself tied to a bed beside a man who may (or may not) be the killer!

Format: DVD
In my opinion, Lucio Fulci's "New York Ripper" is as every bit perverse and deranged as his later "Dangerous Obsession" a.k.a. "The Devil's Honey."
A burned-out New York City cop gets stuck on a case where a madman is chopping and slashing up young, beautful women; hookers, models, athletes, sex-show performers and anything else the blade can touch. If a "normal" director was given this cliche` storyline, this film would be not much more than another murder-mystery. However, Fulci takes "homicide" to a whole new level without his classic use of zombies or the supernatural. Fucli even has a bit role as the Police chief and is dubbed with a rather amusing Yankee accent.
The Anchor Bay DVD print is beautiful and properly letterboxed.
Packed with plenty of S&M, nudity and arguably the some of the most convincing gore in Fulci's 20-year directing career, this is one horror/giallo film that will NEVER make it past the BBFC. Check it out!
