    The New York Ripper isn’t worth anyone’s time. It fails as a campy thriller in almost every single way. The labor hours it took to restore this film was wasted. Please don’t watch this.

    Is this a great movie? Not especially. Is it as bad as what many people say it is? No! People need to manage their expectations going into this movie. That being said this is not for everyone. It's a movie filled with sex, nudity and loads of gore. The fact that the killer sounds like Donald Duck, to me, is a tad amusing. Definately do NOT watch if you're squimish. You've been warned.

    Prestige sleaze cinema at it's absolute finest. The second greatest grind house film ever made behind The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

    A pesar de que El Destripador de Nueva York tiene una fuerte influencia del cine americano de los 70, lo cierto es que no puede engañarnos y deja notar que es Fulci en estado puro. Aunque la historia de este thriller no es algo para lanzar cohetes (y el misterio que pretende plantear es un poco más que irrisorio) hay una perversidad explícita que hace que la trama te sobrecoja. Eso sí, sigue sin tener mucho sentido a momentos. En cuanto a la realización tenemos lo de siempre: cámara en mano, mucho zoom, musica psicodelica, gore del intenso...ya sabéis, lo bueno. Sin duda una de esas películas oscuras que los amantes del género tienen que explorar.

    I don't know why I didn't like this the first time around, but it was pretty good. Vicious and sadistic, with a great score, even if it's a bit schlocky. The killer's voice in this had me howling every time. I'll rewatch this movie for that alone. This is one of the better Fulci films for me.

    The killer's duck impression is damn infectious.

    A very sleazy, gory and controversial giallo. It's actually a good film if you can handle the afformentioned though with a good plot and soundtrack too.

    Sleazy little giallo with tons of Lucio Fulci's trademark gore. I love this film it may well be misogynistic to some but it all done so tongue in cheek it's hard to believe anyone could take this seriously. It's a nasty fast paced slasher, not for the faint at heart but hey it's a horror film if you don't like graphic violence watch something else.
