THE NEW YORK RIPPER
LO SQUARTATORE DI NEW YORK
1982, Blue Underground, 85 min, Italy, Dir: Lucio Fulci

Quack! Quack! Quack! A killer stalks the streets of the City That Never Sleeps, targeting young women at random. Leaving no clues other than that he “sounds like a duck,” it's up to a grizzled cop and a psychoanalyst to decode the quacking. Following up his zombie quadrilogy, director Lucio Fulci's ultra-violent grindhouse giallo/slasher hybrid slices up the Big Apple into bloody pieces. A true slab of sleaze cinema so vile that only showering immediately afterward will help you feel clean.


35 mm!

NIGHTMARES IN A DAMAGED BRAIN
aka NIGHTMARE
1981, AGFA, 97 min, USA/Italy, Dir: Romano Scavolini

The dream you can't escape alive! A patient disturbed by vicious nightmares of his horrific past escapes from a mental institution and murders his way down New York City’s legendary 42nd Street (in its grindhouse heyday) before making the jaunt to Daytona, Florida. Famously sued by special-effects legend Tom Savini for using his name to promote the film, NIGHTMARES IN A DAMAGED BRAIN still delivers the gory goods with work by Ed French (TERMINATOR) and Monster Man Cleve Hall … and has the distinct honor of making Great Britain's “Video Nasty” list.


35 mm!
40th Anniversary!

THE DRILLER KILLER
1979, AGFA, 96 min, USA, Dir: Abel Ferrara

Spiraling between grimy horror, punk rock and art film, Abel Ferrara directs and stars as Remo Miller, a starving artist struggling to make it in NYC. As the pressure mounts, his sanity slips, and the only way to fulfill his artist craving is by taking a power drill to anyone he encounters on the streets late at night. As the opening title card says: "This Film Should Be Played Loud," so prepare for mayhem at maximum volume.


Screening formats: DCP (THE NEW YORK RIPPER), 35mm (NIGHTMARES IN A DAMAGED BRAIN, THE DRILLER KILLER). The two prints have begun to fade; this is the only known complete print of NIGHTMARES. | Special Ticket Prices: $15 General, $13 Cinematheque Members. No vouchers.
