Directed by Lucio Fulci
In this gore classic, a woman inherits a hotel built over an entrance to Hell. But when she starts to renovate, the gates get opened, bringing forth enough demons, killer spiders, ghosts, and evil zombies to make a grand reopening highly unlikely. The middle film in Lucio Fulci's "Gates of Hell Trilogy" is considered one of his best by fans, thanks to some of the most extremely terrifying and gory sequences in horror history. Chopped by censors in 1983, it took nearly 20 years and Quentin Tarantino's help before the film saw a proper uncut release in the U.S.

Fulci delivers some top notch practical effects and lives up to his reputation as the splattermaster.
Pretty good old school pulp horror film, I watched it for the first time here. While it was enjoyable, it's not a great movie; bad 70's (yes i know it was released in '81) ADR audio, strange plot hooks and kills that seem non-sensicle and don't really add anything to the narrative. Gore for gores sake. Still i liked it, great movie to paint my D&D minis to!
So Gory! Had my eyes shut for 47% of film. Sound Design is Excellent! 9/10 Creepy 'trust me' Horror is 9/10 four skulls
Had some good moments but otherwise was putting me asleep.
That spider scene though.... INFINITELY better than City of the Living Dead and right under ZOMBIE for me as well.
