    I've gotta say House by the cemetery was my pick of these goodies. The basement scene gave me chills and put an evil smile on my face.

    No Cat in the Brain/Nightmare Concert???? ok, I know it is recycled effects and that but it's one of my faves.

    I've seen pretty much all of Fulci's not-made-for-TV films made since Lizard in a Womans Skin (highly underrated in my opinion), Don't Toture a Duckling is pretty damn good too. (spoiler removed and apologies to the board admins)

    I voted The Beyond mainly for the ending... bizzarre but classic, the melting of the lil' girls head is a damn fine special effect too.

    Cheers for the welcome Crystal :)

    I'm sure I will like it here. I've been a big fan of horror in general since around 1990 and during the years 1990-1996 ammassed a huge collection of about ~350 films. Got back into it recently when I brought all my films from my parents house and have the collecting bug again.

    I found this site while looking for a copy of an old spoof horror film (yes I like those too) called The Hand of Death Part 25 - Jackson's Back and managed to find a copy on ebay, along with a nice new copy of Joe D'amato's Beyond the Darkness.

    I got the horror bug again.

    My vote's for The Beyond. This film was my introduction to Fulci and blew my socks off. Still does.

    Also love Don't Torture...., City and New York Ripper. Will have to give my Zombie LD another spin...didn't really hit the spot last time I watched it.

    I love Zombie the best. It was the only one I was able to see in a theatre and it always brings back great memories. Parts of City of the Living Dead were filmed where I live so thats also on the must see list (not to mention the drill scene of course), wish I could have been in it

    House by the Cemetery. Is it okay to root for a child to get the axe?

    Although I'm a huge Fulci fan, I find that he excels at being a "scene" director.
    The splinter in the eye in Zombie
    The drill through the head in City
    The vomiting of the entrails in House
    The chain whipping in Don't Torture
    The eyeball razor in NY Ripper

    Just my 2 cents...

    Those specific scenes are all great, but for me it's the atmosphere he created in his films. That to me is where Fulci truly excels.
