After the film was rejected for a UK cinema certificate in 1984 chief censor James Ferman ordered the original print to be re-exported back to the rights holder in Italy. This was to avoid any possible prosecution of either the UK distributor or the BBFC itself. See more »

Chief of Police:
Fred, have you flipped out, or are you trying to give me an ulcer? A smart-ass coroner comes out with a little verbal diarrhea, and you immediately go around declaring there's a maniac loose in the city.
Lt. Fred Williams:
Yeah, so what do you want me to say? A boy scout's been widdling on girls with his knife?

The German DVD version titled Manhattan Ripper is cut by 11 minutes, the cuts include:
Rosie's death is completely cut out of the film, including the finding of her body and when the surgeon is examining her body.
The scene at the porn club is almost completely cut, the sight of the hooker going down over the Latino is missing as well of the rest of the scene, including Jane masturbating.
The scene where the hooker is killed by a broken bottle only shows the bottle coming out of the curtain and the aftermath.
The foot-fucking scene at the bar misses the shots of the Latino pleasuring Jane.
The young girls nightmare where she is butchered by the killer removes all violence.
When Lt. Williams drives away from the psychologist lacks the shot of him looking after Williams.
The scene with the Greek touching Jane's private section and belly is removed.
The killing of Jane is completely missing.
A scene at the psychologists office is missing.
A scene at the killer's hideout has been removed.
The scene with the razor is completely missing and the finding of the victim.

Lt. Fred Williams a new york cop is investigating a number of disturbing killings where the women are to say the least butchered. His first clue is that the killer speaks like Donald Duck, and soon the killer is calling and taunting Williams, so he calls in the help of a local Professor of Psychology to help profile the killer. There are plenty of gruesome killings and seedy set pieces to keep any sleaze fan happy ie.A Latino *beep* a woman with his foot, the same woman masturbating in a live sex porno theatre and taping it to pleasure her husband with later,a girl being butchered with a razor blade ripping open her face right down through her eyeball pretty gruesome .but wholly enjoyable as only Fulci can do. The dubbed dialogue is poor at times but it didn't take away from my enjoyment a real video nasty
