Did you like New York Ripper?

  1. I was thinking of buying this slasher, as I've heard it's very gory, so I wanted to know you guys opinions on the movie:

    Did you like it?
    Is the F/X good?
    Is it gory as hell?!!

    Cheers. :)

    Go for it!

    This is one of my favorite Euro-horror slashers. Great guilty pleasure, equal parts ridiculous and sublime.

    Effects are, as with most Euro titles in my experience, anywhere from grotesquely realistic to a little absurd. Mostly top-notch. A couple of really great ones, and at least two "oh my God!" ouchies.

    Gory as hell? Yeah. Maybe even gorier.

    AB's disc is a nice one. Not great, but solid. Usually about $15-20 and well worth the price IMO.

    New York Ripper is great. My wife and I watched it for the first time and showed it to a friend. Our friend got a DVD player a few weeks later and New York Ripper was one of her 1st DVD's. It was a good one.
  4. Cheers for the info, lads....

    Off to order it...

    I liked it much more than I thought I would, and yes gory as hell.

    This is probably the fastest paced Fulci flick I've seen. I was very impressed by it. The dubbing was bad, but the acting was better than normal. I'd recommend it even if you didn't like The Beyond or Zombie. However, I still think I like Zombie best.

    But if you're looking for a slasher flick, this is a real good one. The duck thing even makes sense by the time it's over.

    New York Ripper rocks you have to get it it has some great breast mutilation :) :) and other gore!!!
  8. Well, it's been ordered, and this morning Maniac came through the letterbox, so I'll watch that tonight.

    Can't wait until Opera comes out next week.

    I was shocked to discover (through sexgoremutants.co.f9.uk) that the AB dvd is zoomed in, missing information from ALL sides of the screen!
    Italian Shock has released a better region free dvd with more extras and a solid transfer.
  10. Just watched New York Ripper, and yuk!, that bit where the killer cuts right through a victims nipple with a razor.....

    Great slasher, though..:)

    The Italian Shock disc is very good. Excellent film. I loved it. Fulci had the best gore scenes.

    The AB version is cropped ?. I'd like some more info on that, please. I don't have the AB DVD (yet) but I have their VHS of it, and I think the framing looks quite nice. (-The tape quality sucks though.)

    Poor Daniella Doria gets it again in NY Ripper; this time (as everybody knows) through her stomach, nipple & eyeball in a long & protracted torture/murder.

    Daniella Doria is kind-of like the female Giovanni Lombardo Radice (John Morghen). Fulci must have either loved or hated her with a passion. Check out The Black Cat - where her face is eaten by rats, House By The Cemetery - where she has the blade of a knife slammed right through her head, City Of The Living Dead - in which she vomits-up sheep entrails, The Beyond - where she get's her ear eaten & throat torn out by Dickie! - Without doubt, Daniella has to be my favorite Italian Ice cream!
