We here at the Horror Syndicate love to educate young or even old boils and ghouls, in all things horror. So, this month our fearless leader decided to dub the month of February 2017 ‘Fulci February’. For those not in the know, Lucio Fulci is considered by many ‘The Italian Godfather of Gore’. His career spanned over three decades before his untimely death on March 13, 1996 at 68. All the while, giving us some splendid entries in our beloved genre. Fulci, is without a doubt one of my most beloved storytellers of horror. So, without further ado I give you all my personal Top 10 list for Lucio Fulci!!!
10): A Lizard in a Woman’s Skin (1971)
9): New York Ripper (1982)
8): The Black Cat (1981)
7): Manhattan Baby (1982)
6): The Psychic (1977)
5): Cat in the Brain (1990)
4): House by the Cemetary (1981)
3): City of the Living Dead (1980)
2): Zombi (1979)
1): The Beyond (1981)
Seven films were directed between 1979 and 1982. SEVEN! All, are on this list. To me, during this time-frame he was truly in his prime.
Do you agree with this list?
If not, what would you change?
Thanks for reading as always! Stay tuned all February 2017 for more Fulci goodness!
