Viewing Notes

Prime updated their print since I last viewed this. Thinking that this is the Arrow release. If I didn’t already know I’d would not guess that Fulci directed this and I’d guess at least ten other Italian directors before him. It might be his best work that I’ve seen tho not my favorite.

I’d like to know the exact location of Barbara Bouchet’s home in proximity to that village; it’s so modern and chic compared to the rustic quality of literally everything else in the movie.
