The House by the Cemetery
Directed by Lucio Fulci
Gruesome supernatural slayings begin after a family moves into their new house in the final entry in Lucio Fulci’s “Gates of Hell” trilogy. The Boyle’s new house hides a horrific history of murder and torment, including a recent familicide committed by Norman Boyle’s former colleague. But as Norman tries to uncover the mystery behind the murders, he uncovers an otherworldly secret that may be closer than he thinks. Though it’s tonally less apocalyptic than CITY OF THE LIVING DEAD and THE BEYOND, the creeping suspense and gory FX should satisfy any Fulci fan. Contains violence and gore.

Dubbing was a bit off, But Loved the rest! 4 Skulls from me!
It's bloody awful. Gore is on point, and there's an impressive shot here and there. You'll see worse, facts, but Bob will haunt you...be brave.
It was ok
Bob's voice, the casual sexism, the "meaningful" eye close-ups, the repeated cuts between Ann's face and the doll and the mannequin, like "HEY WOW LOOK IT"S ALL THE SAME PERSON WOW DID YA GET IT?!" I got 25 minutes in and just couldn't do anymore.
I really enjoyed this film though I did have to take breaks. I don't see how it ties into the rest of the trilogy but it was a good watch. The bat scene had me cracking up the 8th time he had to stab that thing. I wish Shudder would host the original Italian dub.
