Fulci’s Finest Mo­ments

The Grand Old Man of Gore

SFX - - Time Ma­chine -

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).
