Children..MURDERED!!

11 years, 1 month ago at Sep 6 17:34
Filmed in 1972 about several murders of young boys in a small remote village. Showing the first part of the killer is of course his hands, poking needles into what seem like voodoo dolls of certain kids with horrifying music and faint screaming of each child in the background. That scene sets the grounds for an interesting and most violent near future. Lucio Fulci has this marvelous way of setting... read more

"4.10. Lucio Fulci trollailee katsojia näyttämällä raakaa lapsiin kohdistunutta väkivaltaa ja esittelemällä sen jälkeen moraalisesti arvelluttavia hahmoja, joiden tehtävä on herättää katsojien viha, koska nämä vääränlaiset ihmiset ovat selvästi hirmutekojen takana. Homma ei tietenkään ole niin yksinkertaista, mutta tällaisena moraalikoodistoa pohtivana "Rikoslaki ei ole tykkäyslista" -tutkielmana Don't Torture a Duckling toimii erinomaisesti."

my 2020 movie diary ♥ (39 movies items)

" This movie is highly disturbing. Like I know that Lucio Fulci is an extremely triggering director, but dude went above and beyond here. The film centers around child murder and pedo elements, and has extremely violent gross-out death scenes. Fulci loves to go overboard on the gore. It's all set against the backdrop of a scenic village in Southern Italy, and the soundtrack by Riz Ortolani is both haunting and odd. Florinda Bolkan and Barbara Bouchet are both stunningly gorgeous and they hav"

"9.6. DVD Fulci tuo giallon pois kaupungeista maaseudulle, joka muistuttaa brittikylmäilyä. Tämän lisäksi totuttua monisyisempi yhteiskunnallisuudessaan. Sisältö sekä kuvastohan ovat kauhistuttavia, mutta näyttää jälleen upealta. Heittää sekaan niin paljon punasilakoita, käänteitä, hahmoja ja maisemia, että uusintakatselusta on varmasti hyötyä."

"First viewing - July 23rd Giallo Fest I actually tried watching this a few years back but quickly realized I wasn't in the mood for it. Fortunately after two nights spent with other Giallo films I was more open to it this time around. I appreciated the ways it worked to throw off the audience from who the killer is, and for most of the movie it kept me guessing. So the story side of things works really well, though it's possibly a little too long. Now whether it's due to the dubbing or just the"

"I expected to like this more than I did, since I'm a big fan of Fulci's films, and this is supposed to be one of the better ones. It's pretty tame gore wise, compared to a lot of his other films, but the ending was probably the high point of the film for me. "
