The Devil’s Honey (1986)

The name Lucio Fulci for many film fans is synonymous with the word gore. His name looms large over those of us who enjoy a bit of the red stuff but in recent years his non-horror films have received reappraisal.

The name Lucio Fulci looms large over the world of horror cinema. Images of incredibly gory deaths, fog, great music, and lots of make up effects jump to my mind when I hear the name. Director of horror classics like Zombie, The Beyond, City of the Living Dead, not mention his forays into every other […]

Four of the Apocalypse (1975)

I’ve seen a Fulci giallo. I’ve seen a slew of Fulci gorefests and I’ve seen a Fulci film starring the man himself but a Fulci Western? The man of every genre did indeed make a few Westerns, before his gut munching zombie days though, and For of the Apocalypse is just one. Filmed just a […]
