8/10 … “Lo squartatore di New York” or better known as ”New York Ripper” was one out of 3 horror movies that was the first ones that I ever saw. We sneaked home, to a friend’s house during lunch break in school and his big sister had these. The other ones were Friday the 13th Part III, and one more that I’m still looking for. I can only remember one scene in it where a man pushed down someones head into the car engine or fan belt (and no it’s not ”Madman”)
I just love the mean spirit of this one, raw and brutal kills and with sleazy New York 42nd street/TimeSquare as it’s backdrop. The only things that prevent me from giving this a full score is the killers f**kin duck voice and that I think the ”horny woman” has a little bit too much focus on her and lengthy scenes, although refreshing to see a female going after her sexual urges and fantasies. I also just love the Detective Williams character, he’s smoking in the autopsy room and is having a relationship with a prostitute. Don’t think that would get by with todays correctness.
As some of you know, Lucio Fulci is my absolute favourite director, and New York Ripper I would put on 3rd place among his movies, only topped by his ”The Beyond” and 1979’s ”Zombie”.
9/10 … This is my absolute favourite in the whole series. Amazingly ”fun” mix of awesome killing methods, a great location and a great cast. We also get a strong final girl, Chris (Dana Kimmell), the best of the whole franchise. She really fights back. A pretty high kill count with 10 casualties doesn’t make it boring either.
4/10 … Gather around the campfire, and hearthe tale of Madman Marz – an ill-tempered farmer who, one dark night, chopped up his wife and two children into pieces. When the locals learned of his heinous crimes, they exacted revenge – sinking an axe into his head and hanging him from a nearby tree. But the next day, Marz’s body was gone…
