The New York Ripper
Directed by Lucio Fulci
A killer who talks like Donald Duck targets sexually active New York women, brutalizing them in increasingly twisted ways. Now It’s up to Lieutenant Williams, who knows plenty about vice, to catch the deadly Disney enthusiast. Of course, this being a Lucio Fulci film, every step closer results in dismemberment, disemboweling and death. Set in the heydey of sleazy 1980s Times Square, which was rife with adult shops, theaters, and clubs, Fulci’s sickening slasher inspired an orgy of outrage and censorship. But, um, you’re over 18, right?

Loved the Bradley Cooper looking doctor. He was so serious. The person who suffered major trauma throughout the movie grabs him for comfort at the end. Instead of being a sympathetic ear, he provided the epilogue with no emotion.
Thought was a pretty good and bloody 80s slasher, and with the old New York backdrop made it dark and gritty, Loved the kills and practical effects
I've avoided this film for a while and I shouldn't have. While the kills are really hard to watch, the aesthetic of gritty, seedy, 80s New York that Fulci captures is really well done. He kept me guessing until the end, which I didn't see coming. Not for the faint of heart, but a classic of the genre as only Fulci could create. These are the types of movies that your Mom warned you about.
Fulci loves popping eyeballs as much as Tarantino loves feet. 5 skulls because to this day I still laugh uncontrollably at the final scene. "Please daddy...Don't leave me." BAHAHAHAHA. You got no arm or leg and a dead dad. You suck. (*note: its' a fictional child whose plight did not exist so chill.)
dont quite understand the story and its ending. However i did love the acting. Gore was also well done. Great music too. Overall i would recommend
