Late last year, Blue Underground re-released two of their classic titles — Maniac and Zombie — in 3-disc limited edition sets featuring brand new 4K restoration. Both of those releases are incredible and immediately had me wanting more Blue Underground titles to get similar treatment. Well, they’ve just announced another in the form of Lucio Fulci’s splatter classic, The New York Ripper.
This set hits shelves June 25th and features a stunning display of extras. This set comes with a Blu-ray, DVD, and CD soundtrack, collectible booklet, reversible sleeve, and 3D lenticular slipcover (First Pressing Only). The new 4K restoration comes courtesy of the original camera negative and it’s uncut and uncensored. Fucli fans rejoice!
A blade-wielding psychopath is on the loose, turning The Big Apple bright red with the blood of beautiful young women. As NYPD detective Fred Williams (Jack Hedley of For Your Eyes Only) follows the trail of butchery from the decks of the Staten Island Ferry to the sex shows of Times Square, each brutal murder becomes a sadistic taunt. In the city that never sleeps, the hunt is on for the killer that can’t be stopped!
Co-written and directed by acclaimed horror maestro Lucio Fulci (Zombie, City Of the Living Dead) and filmed on location in the mean streets of New York City, this is one of Fulci’s most savage and controversial thrillers. Now Blue Underground is proud to present The New York Ripper in a new 4K restoration from its original camera negative, completely uncut and uncensored, and fully loaded with exclusive new extras.
