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
Kitty's death by razor blade was originally longer and more gruesome. Why the extra violence was cut is unsure, but images found on the Japanese DVD cover confirm that more gore was filmed. See more »
[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.

Lucio Fulci's "The New York Ripper"(1982)is a very sleazy and nasty thriller filled with sadistic sexual violence and gore.A sicko killer is on the loose in New York City.He enjoys slicing up young and beautiful women,preferably naked ones.He also talks like a duck and likes to taunt police.Lieutant Williams(Jack Hedley)tries to find him.Like all good gialli "The New York Ripper" is an uniquely crafted mystery with plenty of red herrings.The film is extremely brutal-women are graphically gutted,Zora Kerova("Cannibal Ferox")has a broken bottle rammed into her vagina,another woman has her erect nipple,then eye slowly slashed by a razor blade.It also features more sex and sleaze than any other Fulci film I can recall for example one scene takes place in a 42nd Street strip club,where a man and woman engage in live sex on stage in front of an audience.All in all "The New York Ripper" is a cult classic and a must-see for fans of Italian giallos.So if you liked this one I'd recommend "Giallo a Venezia","The Killer Is Still Among Us","Born for Hell","House on the Edge of the Park","Maniac","Terror Express" and other nasty movies from the golden times of exploitation!
