Killer who talks like a duck wanders around New York City killing women by various means including slicing an eyeball with a razorblade. Detective Jack Headly is hot on his trail. Written by
[after performing an autopsy on a ripper murder victim]
Dr. Barry Jones, Coroner:
He used a blade. Stuck it up her joy trail, and slit her wide open. He could have done a slightly better job if he had more time. But overall, it was a good, efficient butchery.

A killer with the voice of duck?! Who the crap directs this trash? Oh... who else... Lucio Fulci! God, I love a good Fulci film. Hell, I like a bad Fulci film as well. New York Ripper is one that divides his fans. Many of them find it a bit too brutal and believe it to be hateful towards women... I have to disagree with that. I think the victims in this movie just happen to be women, it doesn't necessarily make the director a woman hating prick (although I think he probably was). However I do have to agree that New York Ripper is a nasty film indeed. The gore isn't exactly fun like many of his other films, it's downright disturbing at times. But either way... for all you gore hounds... you're in for a icky little treat. Want to see a nipple sliced in half? Like eye violence? Well, you're a sick bastard! And luckily this film is just for you! The film has a downright dirty sleazy atmosphere to it. You can almost smell it. For those new to Fulci, I'd suggest starting on something a little lighter (City of the Living Dead, perhaps?) before jumping straight into this madness. This is one of my all time favourite Fulci films along with Beyond, Four of the Apocalypse and Don't Torture a Duckling. Check it out!
