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.

My first Giallo, holy crud this movie just hits it home for me. The music, the harsh superstious village, its so kino
The ending scene where a mannequin wearing an old man mask is thrown from a cliff made me die laughing. And no, the vigilante scene is NOT very disturbing. Don’t believe that hype. I guess giallos just aren’t my thing.
I love Fulci, but I found this so boring.
Nice trip, see you next fall! Wakka wakka.
