Pupi Avati: The Man Behind The House With Laughing Windows

Posted 14th November 2012 at 04:09 PM by iluvdvds@Cult Labs

When it comes to cult Italian horror films, a few notorious names instantly spring to mind. From Lucio Fulci to Ruggero Deodato, Dario Argento and Mario Bava; there’s no doubt that these directors are some of the best names in cult Italian cinema. But with Shameless Screen Entertainment’s upcoming release of one of the greatest and most atmospheric gialli, The House With Laughing Windows, what better time than now, to look at the man responsible for this eerie thriller; Pupi Avati. Having directed...

Masters of Giallo - The first three!

Posted 2nd June 2009 at 09:13 AM by Philleh

Hey all, Wildside have the skinny on the latest releases from Masters of Giallo... What're you waiting for? Get reading!

Lucio Fulci's House by the Cemetary:

Home is where the entrails are! Lucio Fulci’s intestine splattered homage to the works of H. P. Lovecraft is as intriguing, and as shocking, now as it was nearly 30 years ago. Norman Boyle (Malco) has been assigned the task of finding out what led the titular home’s previous inhabitant, Dr. Fruedstein, to murder...

Cat in the Brain

Posted 30th April 2009 at 11:59 PM by Philleh

My review of Lucio Fulci's gore-opus is up over at Wildside.

Veteran filmmaker, Lucio Fulci, is haunted by the crimes he’s committed – on celluloid! Visions of graphic murder are consuming him and driving him to the brink of insanity; murders that he shot for his movies and for his audience.

Zombi 2 (Zombie Flesh Eaters)

Posted 23rd April 2009 at 10:49 AM by Philleh

God bless George A. Romero and Dario Argento!

You may be asking yourself “Phill, what the **** are you talking about? You’re reviewing a Lucio Fulci movie!” – And you’d be right? What the **** am I talking about? When Romero and Argento teamed up to create the legendary Dawn of the Dead, not many industry people could foresee the onslaught of imitators that would follow in its wake: due to the fact that most of them believed it would flop! The short sighted, dick-faces!

New York Ripper

Posted 22nd April 2009 at 06:25 PM by Philleh

So, how do you review a film as controversial as Lucio Fulci’s The New York Ripper? A film that was infamously ordered out of the British Isles by the (at the time) head of the BBFC (British equivalent of the MPAA), James Ferman. He was worried that the content of this movie would push the unstable (read: poor and uneducated) into committing acts of hideous violence, of course it’s all a pile of shit, he just didn’t like the film. Much like he didn’t like The Exorcist and Texas Chainsaw Massacre,...
