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.

Weak, disjointed plot; slow pacing. Decent gore effects (an improvement on those in 'City of the living dead') are undercut by laughably bad uses; the tarantula scene is just embarrassing to behold. Horror movies should make viewers feel SOMETHING, but execution here of good ideas is so poor, so slapdash, it's mostly just boring.
absolute incoherent fun!
My favorite Fulci film.
Out of the 175 movies I have seen so far this year, its #36.
The cinematography is good and the effects are okay for the most part. Aside from that, it’s your typical Fulci nonsense.
