A serial killer terrorizes New York City, killing young women in public places - like a ferry or a strip club - & in broad daylight. Police Ltd Williams (Mark Hedley) however is left baffled, as there seems to be - at first - not only no clue, but the killer - in a cartzoon duck voice - even sometimes phones him to anounce another murder, he even eventually threatens the life of Kitty (Daniela Doria), a prostitute whom Williams visits regularly for a nookie. Even psychiatrist Dr Davis (Paolo Malco), whom Williams asks for advice, can do precious little at first.

Now could the killer be Dr Lodge (Cosimo Cinieri), a pervert who loves to listen to tapes of his promiscuous wife Jane (Alexandra Delli Colli) cumming with other men. & weirdly enough, she is seen frequently at the scenes of some of the crimes ...

Then though lovely young Faye (Almanta Suska) feels threatened by a three-fingered men, Mickey Scellenda (Howard Ross), in the subway, & upon running away from him she is stabbed pretty severely by our serial killer. When questioned by Williams she claims to be sure that Scellenda assaulted her ... but why then did she have this strange nightmare that her own boyfriend Peter (Andrea Occhipinti) was trying to kill her ?

Soon, the police puts out a search warrant for Scellenda ... who presently has kinky bondage sex with Jane in a cheap hotel room. After sex though, with Scellenda sleeping, Jane, still tied to the bedpost, learns that the men sleeping besides her is actually a wanted serial killer, & only witht he greatest of effortscan she free herself & make it out of the room without waking Scellenda ... only to be slaughtered inthe hallway.

... Faye has meanwhile moved in with Peter, when Scellenda stops by to have his revenge for her sellin g him to the police ... fortunately Peter caqn chase him off ...

Days later, Williams gets another call from the killer (in his usual duck-voice), & he claims to call from Kitty's place - but when Williams finally arrives there, he finds his favourite prostitute badly cut up ...

Later, Scellenda's body is found, & the coroner finds out he had sommitted suicide four days prior to Kitty's murder ... which leaves Williams without a suspect (let alone culprit.

Re-enter psychiatrist Davis, who has since found out that the killer must be someone who hates anything imperfect ... probably because he as an amputated & terminally ill daughter ... & soon enough Davis & Williams find such a girl, & wouldn't you know it it's the daughter of - Peter !!!

Meanwhile Faye has found some clues to Peter's guilt herself ... problem is, she's home alone with Peter, & when she drops a few misplaced hints, all of a sudden he knows that she knows & attacks her. Fortunately Faye had the foresight to arm herself with a kitchenknife, & she stabs him ... but like every good killer, he doesn't stay dead just like that & it still needs Williams making it to the scene & blowing Peter's head off.

The town is saved, only a little, terminally ill & amputated girl is terminally unhappy that she has lost her father ...

In the 1970's, when the giallo genre (a specifically Italian version of a serial-killer whodunnit) was at its height, Lucio Fulci, not yet a zombie director, made a few quite good genre-pieces (e.g. Don't Torture a Duckling, Seven Notes in Black). In the early 1980's however, when this film was made, the giallo boom was essentially over & the audience wanted (& expected) something stronger.

So 1982's New York Ripper played down the whodunnit angle as such & instead presented the audience with a few very graphic gore scenes & some sleaze & bondage to go with it. As a result, & despite a competent directing job, New York Ripper became a dirty & violent little trash picture - but that's no reason not to like it (nothing for the faint-hearted however).
