Personally, I don't know if I want to watch this or not. As someone with a big interest in gender politics and horror and finally getting to see Fulci's films, I'd certainly find it interesting. But I don't think I'd like it, and I don't particularly enjoy watching things that (theoretically) fit Calum's and Kermode's descriptions.

(As an aside, I have a much MUCH bigger problem with Shameless' 'whores meet saws' tagline than I do with any actual Cult Labs FILM I've ever seen...)
To be honest - time and the passing of years has softened me a lot on The New York Ripper. I'm even beginning to wonder if it's more of a comical send-up of the giallo as a whole. I have come to enjoy the movie quite a lot even thought the gender politics do get under my nose (the fact they ARE so misogynistic is what's led me to wonder if it's all just a joke)
