First post? Let me just say, balls.
Best "first" post ever.
Still doing this Latza? I thought you'd have learned by now.
I like balls. Sue me.
Could it be another duck film?
This film has not helped my wife's crippling fear of ducks.
On the heels of all the duck references that are sure to come, I'd like to request "Don't Torture a Duckling" as a future ep....
I've crazy wondered about that title ever since you showed the box cover :)
With so much duck noises in the movie, I have Weird Al's I Want A New Duck playing in my head!
"One that won't murder women
Stabbin' 'em till they're dead
He'd better steer clear of 42nd St.
Or he'll wind up with a hole in his head..."
What? No Disco Duck references? For shame Brad.
He mentions Rick Dees at a certain point...
He referenced me! Quack quack!
I loved the darkwing duck reference XD
oh i thought the doctor was the killer...oops
Aw poor little girl....
What do you mean poor little girl? Several people were murdered!
No freakin kidding that was the greatest era of New York City.
I miss that New York. The Taxi Driver New York. Hell, the Driller Killer New York.
Nice little sleaze flick, but the rationale of the killer is REALLY off.....
(Rippers are 'Lust Murderers' - it's about the attack as a twisted sex act, not as a revenge motif)
I think I read too much Criminal Psychology & True Crime; I can't help nitpicking it :)
5:19- Dude, if it were not for women, you wouldn't be born to say sexist shit.
9:28- I never thought that 25 cent peep shows were like THIS in the early 80's.
The woman in the porn theater with a tape recorder and pleasuring herself reminds me A LOT of the insane lesbian in Windows.
12:57- Okay, this lady is more insane than the lesbian in Windows.
17:09- FINALLY, you're referencing Windows.
Is it just me, or does the duck noise sound like a cat getting tortured to death? Brad, I just hope that you watched this movie whenever Lloyd wasn't around, for safety sake.
14:28- I would have gone with "You're despicable," but I guess that works, too.
25:43- Wow, I never thought I'd see an effect like that outside Romero's Dawn of the Dead and Day of the Dead.
27:03- Only in Italian horror cinema can the ending to a movie be such a downer.
Why oh why oh why oh why couldn't the killer have been the Disco Duck, upset that the disco craze was over and to be stopped in his killing tracks by Howard T. Duck?!
Ah, that movie we've heard Brad mention many times on RadioDrome and Geekjuice Radio. Well, one of them...
brad, do The Fireworks Woman. the wes craven porno. you know, out of respect and all.
Wow... a good suggestion for a future episode. Who let you on this board?
Okay, apart from the quacking, the Ripper actually sounds like King Pooper.
That's what I was thinking.
"Wait, that stupid voice sounds fami-oh dear christ, NO!"
I knew this had to be the sequel to Super Hornio Brothers
Is it sad that I glossed over all of the misogyny in this movie because Cannibal Ferox was so cartoonishly hateful to women that it set unrealistic standards of what counts as misogyny? Oh and also Cannibal Ferox was more misogynistic than New York Ripper, dont know if I made that clear XD
Well, the movies themselves weren't misogynistic. They clearly depict these guys as bad.
They actually make a case against misogyny in that way. Only because something has hateful characters or actions in it, doesn't mean it is an endorsement of them.
The movie is full of misogynistic fantasies. Of course it's an endorsement. Are you crazy?
Ohhh, the Fuck-a-Duck killer is just begging to be turned into an episode of Lloyd!
And I can't help but wonder if this is the same Duck that called Spoony at the end of the Phantasmagoria 2 series. Damn those murderous ducks!
I would be more disturbed by that shot of that lady getting stabbed in the crotch if women had penises.
But the psychosexual implications of being stabbed in the crotch make the killer all the more clearly misogynistic!
Hey brad, I was just wondering if you were going to talk about about Hannibal at all, as you probably know it got cancelled. You mentioned you were pretty into the series during the first and second season. I felt like the third season dragged often, and I think it has a lot to do with less screen time for Mads Mikkelson. What are your thoughts.
Such a great opportunity for 'THEN WHO WAS PHONE?' missed.
Are you going to make a memorial post for Wes Craven?
Check Brad's Twitter.
I don't think the doctor being gay is supposed to be suspicious. or a red herring. I think it's more like having the gay detective in Four Flies on Grey Velvet be a the most sympathetic character.
He is a minor red herring in the movie though, a couple of times they cut to him doing or saying something suspicious.
now that you've starting up on screenwave, could we finally see that footage of Irving and Brian jamming out after seeing Straight Outta Compton?
I was hoping for this to be the darker sidequel to Who Framed Roger Rabbit where Donald Duck goes crazy and starts killing women in New York city.
Considering just how dark "Who Censored Roger Rabbit" appears to have been…
Wha.. damn that opening! Don't you know I'm drunk here! Do I relly have to give up drinking whiel watching this show. The booze used to help, but now , fuck.
What like you never drambk 11 beer FUck you
No place on the roulette table for Mario Bava? :(
One would hope there'd be a spot for Mario Bava on the table, as you could make a good case that he's a better director than Mattei.
Anyone knows why Fulci hate hands? In his movies they get either choped off or never used to for protection. Everyone is just observing the knife rip them with hand idly be their side.
I know this is a slasher movie and it's meant to be gory, but I can't get over the fact that the victims just STAND THERE.
Fight or flight response? Nope.
Yes, it isn't meant to be realistic, sure, but if somebody stuck a knife in my belly, I'd claw his fucking eyes out and run! Or try to grab the knife and hurt my attacker. Basic human instincts. Sheeeeeeesh.
No, you wouldn't. If someone just came out of nowhere and stuck a knife in your belly, you'll probably first be shocked that it even happen, then you would react to pain, and once you get to your senses, you'll probably already be dead. You just think you'll act all Rambo because you've never been in situation like that (not to mention, everyone is "internet tough" these days), and I hope you never do.
I remember a murder case from maybe 2-3 years back in my hometown (in Europe), where three guys walked down the street and out of nowhere some gypsy guy appears and stabs the guy in the middle right with a knife right into his heart, killing him instantly (no real motive, it wasn't even robbery attempt).
The two guys who were right there, next to him, didn't even realize what the hell happen for maybe 20-30 seconds until now dead guy in the middle dropped on the ground and saw the stab wound.
So no, this movie is actually pretty "realistic" when it comes to that.
If only the Killer Duck was a Cenobite then this movie would have made more sense.
By any chance will you be reviewing Midnight Madness in the future? I know you'll strike comedy gold out of it.
Anyone else notice that Brad had a boner when he mentioned Donald Duck being a Nazi?
Dear Cinema Snob, as a gamer I hae to say...that for bizarre serial killer stories I will stick with Innocent Grey's titles, thank you very much. ;)
The dog in the opening scene looks like she's ashamed to be carrying a rotting hand in a Fulci movie. As she should.
My single takeaway from Italian cinema is that Italians love sex and gore and hate animals and women.
They must really hate zombies and men too, because they always die horrible in Italian movies.
and ducks. Ducks are anathema too.
I was hoping for musical March (in September)
It's not September yet =)
It is now. :D
Not when the episode was posted.
Brad, how DARE you trip me up with facts!
I'm still waiting a Xuxa musical review.
Please, no one out crazies Donald: https://youtu.be/KqEVYbPw9lI?t=1m52s
Yes! So happy Brad is finally doing more Italian horror! Hope to see some more soon.
- Brad, why you stopped using the theme song?
- Do I own the rights to the song?
- Then you answered your own question.
(Months and months have passed... and now I can answer)
- Actually I didn't, since not owning the rights to the song never stopped you in the past
(So good to take this off my chest)
Has Dave seen the Comic Con trailer for Batman v Superman. Honestly, it looks even worse than the normal trailer. Lot's and lot's of big pompous statements about night and day, evil coming from the sky and things exploding.
Brad, I just got done watching your review and I must say I'm disappointed.
Movies reflect the status of women in society. The New York Ripper is clearly an example how America is a sexist, disgusting, gross, malevolent, patriarchal rape culture.
Only Americans could produce such a misogynistic film.
I am also astounded at the success of comedy films like The Naked Gun. A man assaults a woman with a concrete dildo in that film. People consider sexual assault funny?! America is sick.
Go back to where you came from you social justice retard, nobody gives a damn about your pretentious shit
I also watch movies to be appalled by America's treatment of women, especially Italian movies. . A film that really appals me is The Sister of Ursula which has a killer who uses a wooden dildo and features porno scenes. Cinema Snob should review it so that I can be appalled with other people.
It's nice to see you doing more exploitation films again Snob. It feels like you really are going back to your roots as opposed to reviewing these cop-dog movies and family comedies that can easily be done by Doug Wanker. That's why last year was your worst year of Cinema Snob reviews, because you focused way too much on WTF Hollywood and popular shit, there weren't even enough porno spoofs and exploitation films.
25:02 well, that would explain Bruce Jenner...
This was the strangest killer movie I've ever seen. I kept refreshing my browser thinking that the Duck noises were from some other video I may have opened.
I'm hoping you do BURIAL GROUP and PIECES
Is it just me, or does the killer look like Anthony Perkins
Started watching this film once but couldn't finish it. Not because it's violent, but because it was just dull and kinda shitty. And silly. Extremely silly.
My uncle likes to do impressions of Donald Duck all the time. The quacking in this movie sounds familiar. Oh my god, my uncle is the New York Ripper! DUM DUM DUM!!
remember kids, quack is whack. also, if the audience at a porn theater gets bored, just have Donald Duck show up to be sexy. it's worked well for him before: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WUgl4u9F9SQ
Some of the older archived videos of 2009 were brought over from the youtube account before thecinemasnob.com was created, so please forgive the lesser video quality of such as some did not transfer well.
