Today would have been Lucio Fulci's 90th Birthday. I think this is his best horror film. 🤤🦆🗡😲
DON'T TORTURE A DUCKLING
Lucio Fulci's gruesome thriller about the murder of a several little boys in the Italian countryside is the director's best horror film. The plot combines supernatural elements with a traditional murder mystery. Tomas Milian is a reporter investigating the case and the unusually strong supporting cast includes Barbara Bouchet, Irene Papas and Marc Porel. Florinda Bolkan, in a performance that has to be seen to be believed, is a crazed mountain woman who may or may not be the killer. Riz Ortolani, who would score over 200 films in his more than 50-year career, did the chilling music. A very stylish, demented film with excellent cinematography by Sergio D'Offizi. Frequently cut for its content, the 102 minute version appears to be the most complete.
