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.

Enjoyable for the atmosphere, style and place in history. Killer has one hell of a face.
If your looking for a movie to riff this would be a great one. I actually prefer movies that are so bad their good. This one had all my favorites, a score that would just abruptly cut out, horrible dubbing, weird child, a slow moving monster, and even slower moving victims. There was some great scenes, like the bat scene. Guy watches his wife get attacked by a bat and does nothing, then gets attacked himself and can’t seem to kill it. There’s also the ladder scene, where the wife gets dragged down a 10 foot ladder with at least 40 rungs. .
Another Fulci dud.
The characters were so intentionally dumb i had a headache trying to finish the movie. This is definitely the weakest of the trilogy, and by far my least favorite Italian horror flick.
I like Bob.
