The Eroticist (All'Onorevole Piacciono Le Donne)
Lucio Fulci
Lucio Fulci's 1972 film is a caustically witty political satire masquerading as softcore trash. Ostensibly about a lascivious senator with an uncontrollable urge to fondle women, the film lambastes the reigning Italian political order while decorating its critique with slapstick absurdity and surrealist imagery. Fulci's film is hilariously scathing from top to bottom. With Lando Buzzanca, Laura Antonelli, and Agostina Belli. In Italian with English subtitles. Italy 1972 108 mins.

Italian Directors - Lucio Fulci


Aenigma
Lucio Fulci
Italian shock-master Lucio Fulci puts his terrifying talents to work on a Carrie-like story of an outcast schoolgirl who seeks supernatural revenge upon her tormentors. After her snobby classmates accidentally send poor little Kathy into a coma with one of their pranks, she uses her telekinetic powers to make another schoolgirl do her bidding. An eerie look at the dark side of adolescence. Dubbed in English. Italy, 1987, 85 mins.

The Beyond
Lucio Fulci
A New Orleans hotel serves as a doorway to Hell, bringing forth a curse that allows the dead to walk the Earth. Lucio Fulci's notorious gore film may be rife with bad acting and laughable dialogue, but for splatter effects and enjoyable overkill it's hard to beat. This midnight movie favorite is presented in its original, uncut glory. Also known as Seven Doors of Death. In English. Italy, 1981, 89 mins.
DVD | $44.95  

The Black Cat
Lucio Fulci
Loosely based on the Edgar Allan Poe story, Lucio Fulci's film departs from the extremely graphic style the director is best known for in favor of a more atmospheric, traditional Gothic approach. The residents of a small English village begin to die in a series of grisly "accidents" that may have a dark feline heart behind them. Patrick Magee (A Clockwork Orange) stars. Dubbed in English. Italy, 1981, 92 mins.

City of the Living Dead
Lucio Fulci
Also known as The Gates of Hell, Lucio Fulci's zombie movie borrows liberally from George Romero's Dawn of the Dead as well as the stories of H.P. Lovecraft. Fulci pours on the gore in this one, as we follow a reporter and psychic as they try to close the portals of Hell before the dead overtake the earth. English and Italian audio. Italy, 1980, 93 mins.

Conquest
Lucio Fulci
Director Lucio Fulci (Zombie) adds his signature gut-wrenching violence, gore and blood to the sword-and-sorcery genre with this bizarre fantasy epic, presented uncut with all of the insanity restored.

Contraband
Lucio Fulci
One of Italian director Lucio Fulci's better non-horror films, Contraband (also known as The Naples Connection and The Smuggler) still retains Fulci's trademark violence, blood and gore. Fabio Testi stars as a smuggler caught in a mob war after the brutal murder of his brother and abduction of his wife by a rival gang. This edition presents the film in all of its uncensored, uncut glory and fully restored from the original negative. "Vicious, brutal and alarmingly violent...about as wet as the law allows" (Chas. Balun, The Gore Score). Also stars Marcel Bozzufi (The French Connection). Italy, 1980, 97 mins.

Una Lucertola con la Pelle di Donna (A Lizard in a Woman's Skin)
