Always have your tumor spayed or neutered.
Don’t let this happen to you.

Screw CGI.  Look at this magnificent practical effect.

Woe be unto him who opens one of the seven gateways to Hell, because through that gateway, evil will invade the world.

Such a powerful, haunting film.

Even if Fulci did act like a little shit to Maria Pia Marsala (the little redheaded girl), and accuse her of being on drugs.

August 25: Lucio Fulci’s Zombie (AKA Zombi 2) premiered 35 years ago today.

I’d just like to say here that not nearly enough credit is given to cinematographer Sergio Salvati, who helped paint the canvases of Fulci’s films with some truly beautiful lighting.  Even the most gruesome scene (such as the one depicted above) becomes a macabre work of art.  Look at how the lighting outlines and highlights each individual.  Simply remarkable work.

I really want/need to see this movie.

It is absolutely one of the quintessential zombie films.  Great lead performances from Tisa Farrow (sister of Mia) and Ian McCulloch, a beautiful, beautiful score by Fabio Frizzi (also a frequent collaborator of Fulci’s), and some really nice, very naturalistic effects work by Giannetto De Rossi.  It’s absolutely required viewing for zombie fans.
You can actually watch it online for free here, at Horror inc.  The site has a lot of other great zombie films, as well as other Fulci films, such as The Beyond (1981), and City of the Living Dead (aka The Gates of Hell) (1980), which are also both masterpieces of Italian horror.
Fulci may not have been the most pleasant director to work with (one wonders what the final score was of how many people he brought to the brink of tears), but he did have a keen eye for composition, and a definite flair for horror.

In the scene where Elissa Neil’s character discovers her husband’s remains in their basement (shortly before famously having her face torn off), actor James Brewster fed his arm through the back of the mother spawn puppet in order to draw attention to the ring on his finger, which had been noted in an earlier scene, thus letting the audience know of his fate.

Rock ‘n’ Roll Nightmare aka The Edge of Hell

Well, clearly, it’s not quite ready.

Better leave it in for another fifteen minutes.

omny87: Regarding that "death by trombone"- are there any other horror films with exclusively unique kills?

Now this is going to be a fun one.  However, I am going to have to exclude any and all kills from the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise, due to the very nature of the films.  I’m also going to have to disqualify most psychically-caused, animal-related, drug/alcohol-related, or toy-related kills as well (such things have been done to death.  No pun intended).

The main criteria for judgement will be:

  • Whether it has been done before (if there is a precedent).
  • Whether it has been widely imitated since.
  • Overall creativity.
  • Sheer strangeness or humor.

So, in no particular order:

  1. Jason X (2001):  Face frozen in liquid nitrogen, and smashed on a counter top.
    image
  2. Dr. Giggles (1992):  Suffocation by giant Band-aid.
    image
  3. Killer Klowns from Outer Space (1988):  Eaten by a shadow puppet.
    image
  4. Sleepwalkers (1992):  Stabbed by an ear of corn.
    image
  5. Deadly Friend (1986):  Decapitation by basketball.
    image
  6. The Abominable Dr. Phibes (1971):  Head crushed by mechanical frog mask.
    image
  7. Dial: Help (1988):  Strangulation by telephone possessed by ghost operators.  The phone of the film’s heroine later seduces her into taking a bath while wearing lingerie.  I’m not kidding.
    image
  8. The Wicker Man (1973):  Immolation inside a giant, wicker mannequin.
    image
  9. Gremlins (1984):  Unscheduled stairlift launch.
    image
  10. The Toxic Avenger: Part II (1989):  Death by thrown starfish.
    image
  11. Hausu (1977):  Eaten by a piano.
    image
  12. Graduation Day (1981):  Impalement by a sword attached to a thrown football.
    image
  13. Final Destination 3 (2006):  Cooked alive inside a tanning bed.
    image
  14. Death Bed: The Bed that Eats (1977):  Digested by a demonic water bed.
    image
  15. Grim Prairie Tales (1990):  Swallowed whole by a carnivorous vagina.
    image

There are many more out there, but to find/remember and list them all would take a lifetime, and this post is long enough as it is.
