Fulci's Mega Rare Mixture of Ghost Gore & Naziplotation
director: Lucio Fulci
starring: Claus Aliot · Mary Salier · Al Cliver (Pier
Luigi Conti) · Jessica Moore · Robert Egon
director Lucio Fulci delivers a heady brew of Naziploitation and Ghostly
Horror blended with large helpings of nudity and gore. The film opens
inside a country house, hidden deep in the isolated German rural landscape,
at the end of WW2. This house is a brothel and - despite the catastrophic
mania in the battlefield - here, German soldiers are wild with lust
and sexual brutality. But their madness is cut quick by an allied bombing.
Fastforward to present day. Six young people, on their way back to Paris
after a holiday, find the house deserted and decide to stay the night.
Obviously, things don't go well as they are seduced and tortured by
the ghosts of dead Nazis.
was Fulci's feature film lensed between ZOMBI
3 and CAT
IN THE BRAIN. During this time, he had been suffering with serious
heart trouble as a result of a long bout with diabetes. On March 13
1996, he went to bed without taking his insulin. Some say this was suicide;
others, an accident. But sadly, Mr Fulci was dead at age 68.
