A special edition of Rewind of the Living Dead talks about Lucio Fulci’s 1982 giallo classic titled “The New York Ripper,” while discussing a lost episode (recorded many years ago but never released). I will introduce you to the episode…
Italian horror has often been viewed as revered or rebellious by audiences around the world. Famous directors like Dario Argento have built loyal fan bases around the stylized way many directors in European countries smear their canvases with blood.
Known as the ‘Goa’s Godfather’, Lucio Fulci was one of the most beloved directors of Italian horror films, appearing in movies like ‘Zombie 2’ and ‘City of the Living Dead’.
In 1982 Fulci released what would become one of his most controversial films. Set in New York City, the movie features a serial killer who likes to talk like a duck, stalking and killing women in the most gruesome ways possible.
The film was so graphic that it was banned in the UK after being called “the simplest and most damaging film”.
In the latest episode of Rewind of the Living Dead, we’ll be practicing our best vocals and polishing our silver toes as we look back at the 1982 Lucio Fulci-directed film, The New York Ripper….
