    That's a tough one indeed. I voted for old Lucio because in general I find his films more entertaining. He's got some of the greatest gore scenes ever put on celluliod. Fulci also has proven himself to be competent in almost every genre. However, if we were voting on the basis of style and imagination, my choice would be Dario. Hell, they're both great!:evil:

    Fulci is my favorite of the two. Argento can make a more solid film but Fulci's atmosphere impresses me more.

    I'm not going to choose either one. I'm happy that they both made a lot of cool flicks for me to watch. Why does there always have to be a best?

    I don't like either of these guys very much but I choose Fulci because I like Zombie a lot, and nothing else. The only thing I like from Argento is his cut of Dawn and 2 Evil Eyes.

    I go with Argento because his movies always have a real nice pace to them. Fulci films always give the feeling that they are 4 hours long, but I still think that hes a great director. Did anyone else think that Zombi felt like it was a marathon movie?

    You have to go with Argento here, Even though i like Fulci. Argento has about 10 films that are better then Fulci best film IMHO.

    Sorry guys but I think Fulci is one of the most overrated horror directors ever with Tobe Hooper a close second. However with saying that I admit I am a little biased since Argento is one of my favorite horror directors.

    Dario Argento. Still one of the most under-rated director's around.

    I like both guys very much. They both made wonderful classics in my favourite genre. I like Dario just a little bit more...

    Argento by a mile. Fulci represents what I dislike in horror movies. Without gore, Fulci would be nothing. The only Fucli film I like is Zombie (I have a copy of City of the Living Dead here though, and from what I've seen it's a lot of fun). I never understood so-called "gorehounds", but I know that Argento uses gore to further a story (i.e. Deep Red).

    I'm a fan of both, but with a gun to my head I chose Dario just because I saw his work first.

    Had to choose Dario. His style was and is very unique but I love fulci as well for his slow torture shots and the gore.

    Argento vs Fulci

    Dario's Susperia has stayed in my mind longer than most works by Fulci and who can compete with the atmosphere he created. My favorite scenes include the razor wire room and the "it's raining maggots" scene. Chillingly haunting...I love it. I even named my cat Dario

  19. I'd have to go with Fulci, as his films are a little more accessable than Argento's, in my opinion. If I'm watching an Argento film, I tend to try and dig too deep to find the hidden meaning.

    Dario of course.
    Fulci has great moments of course, but he is more of a craftsman than an artist. Argento is his best moments uses both to the maximum.
