DVD-fanatic-9, If you don't like NYR and think it's shit, that's fine by me. The only reason I responded was because of your claim that the film is misogynistic. I don't agree with that and I don't agree that every man that likes NYR and films of that type are hateful of women. (Not your claim, but a lot of people who deem NYR as misogynistic seem to think so.) If you believe that, okay. That is your opinion, but it doesn't make it a fact. As far as I know, no credible evidence has ever surfaced that proves that Fulci was a misogynist. And if he was, don't you think he would have killed off Fay Majors too and let the killer live? Let's be honest here. Though we find out after the fact that most or all of the female victims were stabbed and/or sliced in their pubic region, only one time do we actually see the killer's weapon of choice make contact with a vagina. The second killing - inside the strip/sex club when the killer stabs a broken bottle into the woman's vagina. And to be fair, it was completely dark inside that room, so it could have been a lot more brutal had the lights been on letting you see it in full detail. Ok, I apologize. It seemed as though you wanted films of this type to vanish so no one could see them. Have you seen the 2007 movie, Teeth? If so, how do you feel about sexual violence towards men in films? I'm fine with it as I view it as "just another movie." It's the same way I feel about NYR and all other films. Films of this type are made to shock, terrify, and disturb us, but bottom line: they're made to entertain, at least a select crowd anyways. And I think it really says something that a film like Teeth can get made today whereas a film like NYR could probably never be made today, at least not the way Fulci did it. I don't feel guilty for liking NYR as I have no reason to. I'm not a misogynist. In fact, I'm a hell of a lot more supportive and respectful towards women than your typical guy on the street. I wonder how most women would feel about NYR? A lot of them might be grossed out, but would they think it's misogynistic or just another slasher with more gore? I showed the film to my mom (who loves horror films) a year or two ago and she wasn't bothered by it at all.
