Plot – Spoilers:
Set in New York, though everyone speaks Italian, The New York Ripper concerns the brutal killing of attractive women that soon assumes a serial nature. Lt. Williams who’s in charge of the case decides to consult a psychiatrist Paul Davis to help build a profile. Soon enough, Williams starts receiving taunting phone calls from a funny duck-voiced person claiming to be the killer.

The body count keeps increasing and multiple characters are introduced, each of whom could potentially be the killer – in short, a fine work from one of the masters.

A true classic in the original Italian masters of slasher flicks. I recomend this one for those with an interest in the roots of gritty cop verses serial killer genre.

Yeah, agree with that. Although this film is showing its age, its still up there as an excellent example of its type. Fulci is a master in this genre and has made several good movies just like this one.

Ya, Fulci has always been underrated af. Hey Zed Man, I wanted to let u know, since u were looking for MDPOPE a while back, there’s a new film that’s along those lines(from what I gather) called ‘Charlotte’s Net’. Have not viewed it yet tho, still looking for free stream(and one called Vore Gore), but figured u might wanna check it out;)

Gday Elliot, yeah, I have heard of Vore Gore and saw a trailer of it, looks really good but never heard of Charlottes Net, I will have a look for that one. I have one for you too, check out ”29 Needles”, its one from Unearthed, and has the extreme tag on it, so should be right up your alley. Nice to hear from you again, cheers man!
