Happy bloody birthday to Lucio Fulci
« on: 16 Jun 2009 - 20:12 »

I'm posting this a little ahead of time, but the 17th of June would have marked the 82nd birthday of the maestro of mayhem. Fulci remains my favourite Italian director, ahead of Argento and Bava, and his films, some of the earliest films I've seen in the pantheon of Italian cult cinema are the most personal to me. Too many good films to discuss in this post (too many bad films as well) but I'm thinking about the incredible widescreen shots in Zombie as the dead shuffle thru the windswept town, the strange and gorgeous visual echo of feet running across stairs in The Beyond, or seeing daylight pour through a little girl's head. Seeing The New York Ripper uncut during the dark years of BBFC rule, thinking it was pure punk rock...

Last word goes to Russian film maker Andrei Tarkovsky whose diary entry for September 5th 1980, written in Rome includes, Went to the cinema with Franco this evening. We saw Zombi 2 - science fiction horror film. Ghastly; repulsive trash  :D

I met Lucio Fulci and David Warbeck in 1994 at a film festival in Hampstead, he had the same clothes on he wore in CAT IN THE BRAIN!, He was a funny little man and qiute often whilst autographing people items he'd suddenly go wild scrawling his name all over the place, if i can find my vhs of LIZARD IN A WOMAN'S SKIN i'll do a scan of it and you will see what i mean.
