THE HOUSE BY CEMETERY
Lucio Fulci | Italy | 1981 | 87 min. | V.O. Italian subtitled in Spanish
Maestro Fulci. A house in the woods. Bloody murders. Echoes of Lovecraft. A child like the one in The Shining, who occasionally sees dead people. A disturbing nanny. Graves everywhere. What more can you ask? All this is in the story of Dr. Boyle, who moves with his family to a town to continue with Dr. Petersen’s research (Dr. Petersen hung himself after killing his mistress), and ends up in this house in which panic will spread and blood will flow.
