No-one's going to identify with that. At least...I'd hope not...
Right...from the offset. I like this film (although I think that the 'razor blade' scene is very extreme)

I am not in the right frame of mind to address this at the moment, but...

Surely, the film exists to make a viewer (almost certainly male) watch a person/killer/psychopath terrorising/torturing/killing a female

But have you ever split up with a partner/lover, and thought to yourself 'I want to kill her/him? I would suggest that to some level you HAVE

Please, do not get me wrong. I love the films of Fulci (and things like 'I Spit on your Grave', Last House', 'Straw Dogs etc), but I think that asking of this film is misigynist is not right

In this case, you put up a good arguement, and I concede the point!

It was probably the only time he managed to get a word in after 62 years and she didn't agree with what he said


Apologies, that was a John Carpenter moment i.e cheap shot
