    Okay, all you Fulci-Fans are chomping at the bit...but is the movie any good? I mean, I sometimes buy my favorite directors just to keep my library up to date. Same case here? I'm trying to gauge how excited I should be....

    I have this movie - those crazy Germans put it out.

    What's it like? Hmmmmm.... lots of 80's disco.... lots of 80's dancing (it's about a dance troupe), and a couple nasty murders.

    I wasn't blown away by it, but we Fulci fans know that the closer you got to the end of his career, the worse things went. This one is far enough from those attrocities to make it worthy. It won't blow your mind, but it's no doubt fun.

    I don't think anything is worser than the chessefest known as Demonia. :D

    Worser? :lol:

    Anyhow, I'll definitely give this a rent as I love Fulci, even during his "bad" period. I thought Touch of Death was great. :D

    Dude, this film was created to exploit the success of FLASH fucking DANCE, it was even marketed as Slash Dance! To make matters worst, there is almost no gore in it at all. :cry:

    But it has titties and tight aerobic clothing,right?:blabla: :sperm: ;).
    Seriously though, a goreless Giallo is still a Giallo.And it has Keith Emerson (though the soundtrack is as cheesy as the movie,so I've heard).I'm a fan of Emerson's work though and I'll probably even like it :D.

    --This is considered his worst film.--

    Oh wow, he made far worse, imo. House of Clocks, Demonia, Sweet house of Horrors, Touch of Death......

    I like Fulci, and enjoy even his bad ones, but I reckon Murderrock is better than those lised. As for the dancing - it's pure cheese baby, if you're into cheese, this one is rich!

    I've yet to see the film, but I've long been a fan of the soundtrack. The theme song is without a doubt one of the most potent slices of cheese ever cut in the Euro-synth scene. Amazing.

    I'm excited for this release though...I had been contemplating importing that R2 DVD, but I trust Shriek Show will deliver the goods here in R1.

    Oh don't get me wrong, I will still buy it, not rent, buy, since I am an ass and a Fulci fan, plus I liked Touch of Death :cry:

    Demonia, bad? I fucking loved Demonia! But Touch of Death is one I can't really defend... it's just merely mediocre. I have his TV movies but haven't watched 'em yet.

    The movie sucked for sure, but it was funny and gross and it had great gore.

    Thanks for the heads up AK.
    I recently posted on another forum that I wasn't really interested in Fulci's later stuff (post-Salvati) but I'm interested in this one.I hope SS/MB doesn't let us down.
