Lucio Fulci's tale of a serial killer on the loose in the Big Apple. When a woman's body is discovered on the the banks of the Hudson, the subsequent post-mortem reveals that she was most definitely killed by a maniac and the police begin to worry that he might strike again. Sure enough, it's not long before a body is discovered on a ferry, and then another in a nightclub, but with clues thin on the ground, the police are no closer to catching the culprit. However, when the next victim manages to escapes the clutches of her assailant, a vital clue is revealed: the killer is missing two fingers!

The film is great, but I'm afriad its CUT. The infamous razor scene is censored by the BBFC, so if I where you I would by the 'Anchor Bay' version which is fully uncut.

Still cut in the UK, after all these years. What are we, sissy's? Alot of the content on here is no worse than the kind of thing you see in the Hostel or saw films.

It's an utterly pointless release, the blu underground version (unrated) is far superior in every way, and fully uncut.

I don't get why the BBFC are doing this. There are no animal killings in the film (unlike Cannibal Holocaust) and it's all just special effects. Read that line again, JUST SPECIAL EFFECTS.

If you really want this great, gory little Giallo from the master of gore Lucio Fulcio, buy this one instead. It may be more expensive, but if your a fan, and want the real deal with a great transfer and extras, it would only seem logical (or just get it imported from amazon.com, seems like they are no longer selling the product brand new).

New York Ripper [Blu-ray] [1982] [US Import]

One middle finger up to the BBFC for treating us adults as kids YET AGAIN. Pathetic.

Film- 4.5 out of 5.
Release- ZERO.

One of Fulci's exploitation/slasher/giallo movies.
If you are a Fulci fan or a fan of the graphic, violent Italian horror films of the 70s and 80s I suspect you'll like it and would give it more than 3 stars. It is a violent giallo film that has the usual Fulci explicit gore in abundance.
It revolves around a serial killer (who speaks in a Donald Duck-type voice! - yes, really!) and is essentially a violent whodunnit with some false leads and twists.
Not a bad film (for the genre), some good sequences and a bit of tension at points. The reason I've only given three stars is because it feels a bit uncomfortably misogynistic. (I'm a bloke who will quite happily watch Argento films all day long without feeling that he's misogynistic).
If you are a Fulci fan and don't own this it is probably one of his better films and you'd probably like it.
If you are not a Fulci fan there are much better giallo films out there - try some Argento's ("Tenebrae", "Profondo Rosso"/"Deep Red") for example.

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By mr_ska TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 27 Nov. 2003
Format: VHS Tape
This is one of the director Lucio Fulci's 'giallo' films. Giallo being derived from many italian detective and mystery novels being published in the past with yellow (gialli) covers, and on first inspection this is a kind of murder mystery film.
Fulci to be fair was not the world's best director, and all of his films have an element of strangeness to them that cannot be narrowed down to anything like translation problems with the script. Instead it appears that the strangeness was just a part of the way he made his films. Fulci made odd films either by accident or design, with plots that often did not really make sense even after the expected twists were revealed, and often with excessively graphic violence, gore, and general nastiness.
The New York Ripper attained a certain amount of notoriety in the 1980's as it was caught up in the 'Video Nasty' furore, in fact never officially making it to video in this country at that time as the early cinema prints that were sent over were all escorted out of the country as the film was considered too vile! The film has remained banned until this Vipco edition was released. This edition has been censored by the BBFC to remove the worst of the violence, but still retains virtually all of its power to shock and offend.
Many viewers will not find anything to enjoy about the film. It is not rubbish, although it certainly is not good, but will have a certain sleazy charm to some. The plot revolves around a well worn detective hunting a vicious killer. A killer that preys on women and murders them in particularly unpleasant ways. The killer is supposedly intelligent, leaves no clues behind, but for some reason feels compelled to call the detective and talk to him in a duck voice!

Format: Blu-ray
Why oh why have 2 video reviews been transferred to this product? Absolutely pointless.

I have owned every format of this film from the NTSC VHS to the Anchor Bay DVD, the Another World Restored edition and now the Blu Ray.

I remember watching the restored AWE DVD and being stunned by the transfer quality. I gave it a much deserved 5 stars.

After watching the Blu Ray last night I am absolutely stunned (again), but even more so this time. The quality of the transfer is a thing of beauty for a film that was made 30 years ago and not with top of the range equipment. It is a thing of beauty.

The extras are o.k. but not as good as I had hoped.

For anyone who is yet to watch the film be prepared for some rather graphic and sleazy violence and story. This is one of my favorite films and I find a couple of scenes rather horrid. The locations make the film and I can't think of a film that show's New York in the start of the 80's better.

5 stars all the way.

This is a review for the uncut Blue Underground Blu-ray edition of The New York Ripper. This is a pretty sleazy and nasty slasher flick from Italian director, Lucio Fulci, the man behind legendary video nasties like Zombie Flesh-Eaters, The House by the Cemetery, and The Beyond. The New York Ripper is grittier and more realistic than those horror classics though, and deals with a subject a lot of people would find offensive -- sexual violence directed towards women. The film has always been controversial in the UK and is still cut to this day. There's even a legendary story of the then BBFC head honcho, James Ferman, having a print of the film escorted out of the country by the police because he found it so repulsive. Of course, that was many years ago and times have changed with a cut version of the film now available in the UK, courtesy of Shameless Films. I can only recommend the uncut version to hardcore horror fans, as a regular audience would find nothing to enjoy here.
