The Lucio Fulci Collection Volume 2 Manhattan Baby/The New York Ripper 2002 Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
I went for this 2 disc set because it did not work out much more than buying 1 film on it’s own, but only liked one of the films,that being The new york Ripper.The case boasts that both films are razor sharp transfers,this is not a lie.ok so they do not look brand new but have been cleaned up pretty well for the age of the films.I knew that Fulci’s films were supposed to be fairly shocking,but the ripper does not dissapoint for sleazy nudity ,sex and violence at all.it is not as hardcore as say,baise moi,but sex/horror fans should be pleased with this,even if the effects have dated badly now.The ‘quacking’ killer taunting the cops as many others have commented does also seem a bit ludicrous.The film is also a passable thriller in it’s own right.
unfortunatelay, I cannot find much good stuff to say about Manhattan baby.The story,effects acting etc do not make up much of a movie for me,maybe one for real Fulci fanatics.Let’s face it,the producer admits on the making of feature on the dvd’the budget was slashed and we basically ended up with a poor movie’ That summed it up,and I watched it sadly as well(before viewing the extras!)Anyway,I will definetly be checking out some more of Lucio Fulci’s movies when I get a chance,it was very interesting to see what all the fuss was about,and not being completeley dissapointed for a change.
