New York Ripper, The Horror Film Trailer 1

More Movie Taglines:
  • New York City: It's a nice place to visit, but you wouldn't want to die there!
Movie Quote(s):
  • [after performing an autopsy on a ripper murder victim] Dr. Barry Jones, Coroner: He used a blade. Stuck it up her joy trail, and slit her wide open. He could have done a slightly better job if he had more time. But overall, it was a good, efficient butchery.
  • 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 Ripper: But you won't understand me, you'll never understand me! You're too stupid! Quack! Quack! Quack!
  • [overseeing the autopsy on the 'Ripper' Scellenda] Lt. Fred Williams: So, what's the good news, Barry? Dr. Barry Jones, Coroner: The cause of death was suffocation. Self-inflicted by the plastic bag thrown over his head. Lt. Fred Williams: What about the time of death? Dr. Barry Jones, Coroner: That I have for you exactly. Between four and five AM on Tuesday the 10th, eight days ago. Lt. Fred Williams: Eight days? Bullshit! That son-of-a-bitch murdered Kitty just four days ago. He couldn't have have been dead for eight days! You're mistaken! Dr. Barry Jones, Coroner: Come on Barnaby. How long have we known each other? How long have I been a coroner? 16 years! Now, if I say the time of death was eight days ago, then the time of death was eight days ago! Sure, I admit I could be a few hours off, but no more. Lt. Fred Williams: Jesus Christ... Dr. Barry Jones, Coroner: Does it really matter? Lt. Fred Williams: Yeah, it does.
  • [Rosie, riding a bicycle, accidently brushes past a misogynist owner's red Volkswagen] Red Volkswagen owner: Hey! Watch where you're going! Rosie: I'm sorry. I was thinking of Boston. Red Volkswagen owner: You women are all the same! A menace to society! You women should stay at home where you belong. You've got the brains of a chicken! Rosie: And you're an asshole! Ciao!
Movie Trivia:
  • Kitty's death by razor blade was originally longer and more gruesome. Why the extra violence was cut is unsure, but images found on the Japanese DVD cover confirm that more gore was filmed.
  • After the film was rejected for a UK cinema certificate in 1984 chief censor James Ferman infamously ordered all prints to be escorted to the airport and deported from the country.
  • After many years of being banned in Britain the rights were purchased by UK company Vipco who issued the film originally as an export-only VHS version under close censor & police supervision. When censorship laws were relaxed in the UK it was submitted to the BBFC for a certificate in 2002 and received 22 secs of cuts to the razor-blade murder, as well as a strict guideline that the film could only be released with minimal publicity. The film was then issued on VHS by Vipco but a DVD release was canceled after some UK DVD distributors refused to stock it. Consequently it was never available on UK DVD until 2007 when the movie was released by Shameless Films, and this version contained similar cuts but reduced to 19 secs via a different edit.
  • The lead role was originally offered to Catriona MacColl who had previously starred in director Lucio Fulci's Paura nella cittą dei morti viventi (1980), E tu vivrai nel terrore - L'aldilą (1981), and Quella villa accanto al cimitero (1981). She was apparently a little suspicious and turned the offer down. It would have been her second time appearing with Paolo Malco.
