The New York Ripper (Limited Edition): Blu-Ray Review

Arriving on 3 disk Limited Edition Blu-ray this week is Lucio Fulci’s The New York Ripper, courtesy of Blue Underground.  This release is nothing to quack at either. (Those familiar with the film will totally get that).  First off, we get a beautiful new 4K restoration from the original camera negative. Now, I am not a big fan of the classic Italian horror but for those of you who are, you should be more than pleased with out great the restoration looks.

The set includes the soundtrack CD, DVD and of course the restored Blu-ray. There is also a collectable booklet inside and a very cool 3D lenticular slipcover which is available on the first pressing only.  Those aren’t the only differences from Blue Underground’s 2009 release.  There are a ton of extra’s that were not on the previous version. Take-a-look below.
