The Black Cat

Gatto nero

1981

Lucio Fulci
Director

A series of macabre deaths linked by coincidental appearances of titular beastie. American journalist passerby investigates.

Somewhat dull retelling of Poe, a surprise from this director, although during the frequent lulls in the action, one notices thatFulci is a much better director than he gets credit for.

One of Fulci's favourite victim's, Daniela Doria, goes out perhaps not quite as gratuitously nastily as usual.
