Fancy building up and completing your Shameless collection? Well, here's a bit of help with this fun and very simple competition...
DON'T TORTURE A DUCKLING “My favourite of my own films” Lucio Fulci
In a small Italian village, pre-adolescent boys are turning up dead and evidence points to either the local witch (Florinda Bolkan), or a beautiful, bored, city girl (Barbara Bouchet) hiding out after a drug scandal...
From Lucio Fulci, the infamous director of The Beyond
and The New York Ripper
, comes this accomplished, stylish thriller in the Italian ‘giallo’ genre. Naturalistic settings, stunning make-up effects and inspired use of music lend a genuinely shocking intensity to a violent tale of tragedy, prejudice and murder, depicting a world in which injustice goes unpunished, moral values are a sham, and innocence is destroyed. Don't Torture a Duckling
is also a stinging attack on the Italian Establishment which allegedly resulted in Lucio Fulci being blacklisted for many years.
A strong story full of challenging moral concepts, Don't Torture a Duckling
is as brutal and disturbing as Lucio Fulci's horror films, but it's also his most powerful and morally focussed work, and a magnificent high point in his long and distinguished career.
This Shameless Fan Edition
comes complete with a whole host of extras including...
- English & optional Italian Audio & English Subtitles
- Booklet inside adapted by Stephen Thrower from his definitive book BEYOND TERROR
- Italian Theatrical Trailer
- Shameless Trailer park
- Reversible Sleeve which looks like this...
Anyone here seen The Avengers
yet? (If not, go check it out - its a lot of fun). I saw it last night and it inspired me with this competition, although it's a little more like AVP! This is how it'll work...
I'll start of the comp with a character, which will be Freddy Krueger
Now the next person simply has to come up with a character (from a film) that could kill my character in a fight and how. Any film, any character/creature. And forget the whole 'immortal' thing.
Then the next person comes up with a even more bad-ass character that would destroy the previous character and how. So on and so forth.
The idea of this game is to have some fun and be creative. As it goes along, the characters should get more and more ridiculous. You can of course modify your character - so ET who can shoot lasers from his fingers for instance. By the end of the competition we should have quite an array of progressivly weirder and WTF-inducing creations.
Each and every post made will be put into a random draw. As such, the more characters you add to this thread over the week, the more chance you'll have of winning.
Competition ends on Sunday (13th), anyone and everyone from anywhere and everywhere in the world can enter. Three copies of Shameless' Don't Torture A Duckling
will be up for grabs!
So get to it, have fun, be silly and don't hold back!
Come on, who wants to take on Freddy Krueger
Good luck all!
