The Black Cat

The Black Cat

Directed by Lucio Fulci

An evil feline causes a series of gruesome deaths in a small town. First it makes a man drive into a parked car, then it suffocates a pair of teens, and then it causes a drunk to fall to his death. But is it really the cat? And what does the medium (A CLOCKWORK ORANGE’s Patrick Magee) who looks after the feline have to do with it all? A photographer (Mimsy Farmer) and a cop try their best to solve the puzzle, but each step closer leads to terrifying danger. Watch Fulci’s eerie Poe adaptation back to back with Dario Argento’s in TWO EVIL EYES for maximum effect.

Decent flick. Unlike a lot of Fulci’s other horror, this one exercised some restraint in the gore department and lets the story sit front and center. Recommended for anyone who likes Poe or traditional-leaning creepy stories.

This is my favorite Fulci film (not the BEST but my favorite). I think it is the combination of Patrick Magee, oddball science fiction, and a really BAD KITTY that so endear the film to me. I bought the Arrow Blu-Ray.

Not bad, Quite a bit of women being objectified.
