A restored New York Ripper?

It looks as if the Danish DVD label Another World Entertainment have released a complete restored edition of Lucio Fulci’s brutal giallo The New York Ripper. The American Anchor Bay US release was uncensored in terms of violent content and did feature footage that was not present in any other home video release but did have once misplaced scene. This release corrects the error and also includes a dialogue scene that is missing from most home video releases. I am unable to confirm whether the latter is the same footage that can be found on the Anchor Bay US release without checking my DVD. One possible setback with this release is that it appears to be in 1.85:1 ratio, the Anchor Bay US release is framed in the original 2.35:1 ratio. Perhaps this is a misprint?

Apparently this release is available now and if the aspect ratio given on the Another World website is incorrect it could be the definitive release of this film.

Further details of the release can be found here.
