Fulci’s Finest Moments
The Grand Old Man of Gore
It was his shift into splatter cinema with Zombie Flesh Eaters t hat won Lucio Fulci international critical acclaim. Following this triumph, the director would helm such enthusiastically esoteric horror romps as City Of The Living Dead ( 1980), The Beyond ( 1981) and The House By
The Cemetery ( 1982). S adly, by t he latter part of the decade he would be reduced to made- for- TV dreck and cheapie VHS outings. Indeed, only the hardiest of explorers is advised to try and tolerate Sodoma’s Ghost ( a fright- less film about Nazi spirits) or Door To Silence ( an exercise i n boredom in which a man chases his own hearse for 90 minutes).
