Here’s something new for the page. Over time these will evolve into profiles, but for now just keeping it simple.
10. Murder Rock
9. Zombie 3
8. Seven Notes in Black
7. The Beyond
6. Cat in the Brain
5. City of the Living Dead
Like the Beyond, this can be incoherent, but the eerie feel and gore make up for it. However the incoherent plot in some ways helps the film as we’re as confused as the main characters. This has one of my favorite gore scenes with the girl vomiting her insides.
4. The House by the Cemetery
I think I like this one more for what it could have been rather than what it was. It seems as if the film is building up to all these revelations, none of which come. But its an eerie film and has this really odd and creepy vibe. When all is said and done it doesn’t make a whole lot of sense, but its eerie enough.
3. The New York Ripper
This film has far more going for it than given credit for. Unlike most of the films from Fulci’s splatter era this one has a coherent plot. While not his goriest film it does feature the most mean spirited deaths he ever shot. But when you get past that this film truly does have more to offer than people realize.
2. Zombi 2
Most people will mention the gore scenes and for good reason, but there is a lot more happening than just gore. The film is loaded with eerie atmosphere and great suspense. This is truly a wonderful film.
1. Don’t Torture a Duckling
Think Fulci is only a gore director? Well than watch this film. This is a movie I liked a lot, but after it was over I realized the full brilliance behind it. This is a must see and proves Fulci is as good as any other horror filmmaker.
With the good comes the bad. My bottom 4.
4. The House of Clocks
2. Touch of Death
Like the above some decent gore scenes, but its just a bad film that’s more meant to be a comedy, only it isn’t funny. Like Demonia, the gore scenes from this are used it Cat in the Brain. So skip this and watch Cat in the Brain.
