LSJTD: The Beyond
We all know by now that I am a big fan of Italian horror. Fulci is a director that I am still getting into and he definitely is the Godfather of Gore, from just a few of the films I have seen ( Zombi 2, Cat in the Brain). I loved this film. It was atmospheric with odd surreal imagery and just a crazy plot. It definitely reminded me of Lovecraftian cosmic horror, which I can always get behind. Also, I am finding as I watch more and more horror, I cringe less and less at violent or gory scenes. But not with this movie! I can't stand things happening to the eyes and not once, not twice, but three times I had to endure a cringe-worthy scene of an eye being gauged out. WTF?!?!
