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!

It's a time capsule of the "Original" Old NY that was sleazy and dangerous
This film could never be re-made or even copied (This point and time in America could never be replicated)
It's best descried as a Grind House meets 70's Porn
On my first viewing I honestly didn't like it at all or understand it
After several more times with it I can say It's maybe one of the most under-rated Psychological Thrillers hidden beneath a Gorey Slasher Film
There's a number of strange layers to the story. But, it's very smart and logical in 1982 through today you don't get something like this very often..
The back drop City of NY is very much a character and you get the 52nd Street NY pure unadulterated sleazy and grime
Jack Hedley as the old beaten down cop (Great Casting) he looks like a burned out Cop that seen alot of stuff his performance is really good
almost all the cast consists of Italian Actors
almost all the actors do pretty good for this type of film
The one Blonde who is introduced past the half way point looks like a Eastern European Super Model (Just Flawless)
The Gore & Sex run neck and neck
the gore F/X are extremely good (without a doubt better then 70% of all the Gore through-out the FT13 Films) But, that's Not there fault mostly the MPAA This on the other hand Rated X aka NC-17
The scene with the Milf at the pool hall is really cringe worthy where these sleazy looking Latin King Members are taking there toes and playing under the table... It goes on for way to long and it makes you feel dirty (I'm sure that was the point)
While sometimes it goes to far to try and be a porn then it has these really inventive Hitchcock Style Shots
as bizarre and out there this film can be It's a true Homage to Alfred Hitchcock
The Blu Ray put out by Blu Underground is a very fine HQ HD transfer (it looks smooth, you can see details, once in a while see can see film grain but for a movie this old you should expect that imo
this is the best way to get a physical HD Copy of the film
the extras are a bit lacking (which is a Shame) better then nothing
If you are a major fan of the Original TX Chainsaw Massacre & TX Chainsaw II you sound really get a kick out of this
If you still unsure the El Ray Network has played in the past NY Ripper Uncut so sometime DVR it then you can make up your mind
Lucio Fulci still in 2015 isn't nearly as known to the mainstream Horror Fans
The IMD Ratting is Horrid 6.4
Without a doubt deserves at Least a 7.5 more slasher fans should embrace this film 'Cause it's a one trick pony yes but it's a one trick pony with Rabies! It lives up to that old saying you can't judge a book by it's cover
The DVD quality is great and there's a good interview with Zora Kerova.
Movie Review: Donald Duck is on a rampage and slicing up broads. There you go. This movie is the definitive sex and violence slasher movie filled with sex and gore to a tee. Though the story lags a wee bit, the end result is golden. The death scenes are fun to watch if you're a loony and the nudity is tolerable. I liked this movie.
Conclusion: 5 Stars for the Blu Ray and 4 stars for The New York Ripper.
