Let me get this straight...


So this guy is cutting up young women because his daughter is dying in hospital..? LOL....It's right up there with the guy in Maniac who was cutting up women because he had Mother "issues"..! Gimme a freakin' break.

Are you on authority on psychology? And by the way, if you're trying to analyze and dissect The New York Ripper in a 'logical' manner, you're wasting your time, because so-called 'logic' simply doesn't apply to the vast majority of Italian horror/giallo/exploitation films.

I know, which is why I think Fulci's zombie flicks are better and more enjoyable that this one.

New York Ripper tries to be realistic - and when it does, such as when the psychologist explains the killer's motivation, etc. - the result is unintentional comedy, because it's so absurd.

Still a good flick though.

reply

Actually, I DON'T believe Peter is the killer. Which is almost THE major beauty about this one. And most are many giallo films DO have logic. The best type of mysteries EVER!

reply

Who do you think is the killer then - the psychologist??

reply

You said it. Or seemingly it does.

I haven't seen The New Ripper in about 7-years so no comment.

But about Maniac. Do you know how many people kill women due to issues with their mother?

reply

The guy is cutting up young women because either Fulci, the director, or whoever the writers are, are sick *beep*s who hate women. Seriously, this movie is one cheap sexually-motivated mutilation after another. This is miles beyond just about anything else I've seen in horror in terms of misogyny. This is BLATANT misogyny.

And I have an extremely hard time seeing the viewers who enjoy this film as sane, rational, healthy people.

It depends on how you look at things. I for one love this film *BECAUSE* it's so extreme and uncompromising. It's plain to see that Fulci had serious issues with women, and it's obvious he used T.N.Y.R. as a way of venting his anger. The least you can give this movie is that it's very sincere on many levels. The average stupid 'horror fan' may only appreciate this film because of the bloodshed, but I'm sure anyone with analytical tendencies can read into it further on a broader level. The way i see it, Fulci - aware of it or not - crafted a searing reflection of the human condition with this movie. Once you get past the awkward dubbing/acting/plot/etc., T.N.Y.R. turns into a seriously dark affair. It's damn apocalyptic.

I see the film as Misanthropic and Nihilistic rather then Misogynistic.

Incredible_Brightness....... This is why feminists shouldn't be watching old school classic horror, these films are not made for you lol.

reply

It's a pretty sick and weird serial killer flick yes but hey that's the shock of it, that's what makes it the realistic Horror it is.

Take that back Texas, Maniac is way more boring that T.N.Y.R.
This film has higher rating because more people like it than Maniac.I suggest you deal with it.

Thanks for the spoiler warning.

It's a movie. Anyone who tries to analyze ANY movie is beyond retarded. Get a life, and quit trying to analyze exploitation flicks. Just watch and enjoy them.

"This film has higher rating because more people like it than Maniac."

It only means it has more votes on imdb. Not quite the same thing
