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.

Lots of gore and a broken, jumpy disjointed plot. What's not to like? Well, maybe the doctor trying to load a revolver through the muzzle as the elevator door closes. (1:13:39)
Classic horror. Creepy, gory, and Lovecraftian.
The painter in the first scene is Willem Dafoe in secret.
what a great movie! thank you shudder for putting it on your platform!!
Great traditional gore. Absolutely horrible plot.
