Music by Francesco De Masi to the eyeball slashing gorefest that is Lucio Fulci's Lo Squartatore Di New York. Released in 1982 and following the success of his previous Gothic projects (The Beyond, House By The Cemetery, City Of The Living Dead), this film - essentially a gory giallo with a vicious killer stalking New York - was a disappointment for fans and something of a turning point in his career. Having the killer adopt the voice of Donald Duck to taunt the police is just plain stupid and the leaden pacing and flat photography make the gore scenes a chore to get through. The hard-gore/soft-porn misogynistic nature of the film also managed to alienate all but the most hardened splatter fan and the film was subsequently banned in many territories (including my own, Australia). It doesn't help that lead actor Jack Hedley looks like he would rather be ANYWHERE else. However... it does feature another fine score from Francesco De Masi, composer of Thunder, Lone Wolf McQuade and a whole bunch of Spaghetti Westerns. The track "April Night" (performed by Walter Rizzati) also turns up in the Australian video trailer for "Cannibal Apocalypse". Weird, eh? And as a useless bit of trivia, the screenwriters of this film (Vincenzo Mannino & Gianfranco Clerici) later re-worked the screenplay to become Ruggero Deodato's Off Balance / Un Delitto Poco Comune (1988).
EDIT: This updated version has a more consistent bitrate (@320) as well as a few cover versions of the title theme. Thank you to those musicians; I'm hoping in the spirit of Fulci-ness, they won't mind me sharing their fantastic versions!
