Don't Torture a Duckling

Don't Torture a Duckling

Directed by Lucio Fulci

After a trio of child murders, villagers suspect a local witch who practices voodoo. But nothing’s simple in this twisted mystery and soon reporter Barbara Bouchet sets out to find the real kiddie killer. Before he became famous for gory goodies like ZOMBIE, director Lucio Fulci churned out gripping giallos, of which this film is arguably his finest. But fans of Fulci’s gruesome side won’t be disappointed. The scene in which villagers enact vigilante justice on the witch (giallo goddess Florinda Bolkon) is one of the most disturbing moments in horror history.

More of a whodunnit than an actual horror movie, this one drags and was hard to get through. Kudos though to the misleading culprit.

This early horror effort by Lucio Fulci has gore galore, an offbeat premise, eerie music, etc. What’s not to love?

Good film, but one of the most forgettable (to me) of the Fulci Giallos. The end is, however, worth the watch.

Pretty boring mystery Giallo without any gore. Also lacks any of the style that made the genre what it is
