Happy Birthday Lucio Fulci

I think it is safe to say, the bulk of the Horror Syndicate are big Fulci fans.  I am a newer fan.  Years ago, I did see Zombi and City of the Living Dead and immediately added both to my horror collection.  But thanks to Hulu and last year’s 31 Days of Horror at my other site, Rage of Rayzor, I was introduced to the Beyond.  It has quickly become my favorite of the Fulci films that I have seen over the past 9 months.  His films have brought me into an entirely different horror arena, Italian horror and Giallo horror.

If still alive, Fulci would be 89 today, but sadly he was lost in 1996…but through his films, Fulci lives.

Happy Birthday to the Godfather of Gore and a true horror master!

I have been watching horror films since I was 6 years old. The story, one Saturday night, my mom and I were watching movies and she fell asleep on the couch. We had the channel set on HBO and the movie we were watching ended and the next one, A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge. This was some time in 1986. I watched then entire film, I was sitting on the edge of my seat. When my mom woke, she asked me what just ended and I told her, “Freddy”. That was all I talked about for weeks and finally she broke down and rented more horror films for me. She rented, the Texas Chainsaw Massacre part 2, Re-Animator, Friday the 13th VI: Jason Lives and Halloween II. I watched all and fell in love with horror films forever. 5 Horror Films to Watch Inferno (1980) A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984) The Beyond (1981) Friday the 13th VI: Jason Lives (1986) Horror of Dracula (1958)
