    Now Fulci was a great filmmaker when he wanted to be, but he cranked out some real stinkers in his career. I must admit I like some of his movies that have taken some criticism over the years. But which is really the worst? (I left out the ones everyone seems to like, but feel free to include them under "other" if you wish.)

    i voted Demonia, it was totally wack

    itll be total blasphemy if someone votes for The Black Cat (..and Cat in the Brain, but i guess i could understand that)

    There's a few on the list that I haven't seen so my opinion will obviously be limited and not definitive. Anyhow, I had to say Demonia. This film just looked damn ugly. Shots falling in and out of focus constantly, poor acting, and a poor plot all contribute to my decision. What does everyone else think?

    SWEET HOUSE OF HORRORS by far! Such a godawful disaster of a film! By the way, I love HOUSE OF CLOCKS and THE BLACK CAT.

    I enjoyed Demonia. Aenigma got my vote for the worst. Sweet House of Horrors is pretty bad too, but the gore scenes in the beginning bring it up a notch. Likewise, the theme song in Aenigma brings that one down a notch, along with the lack of gore and style of his earlier films. So there ya go.:)

    I still haven't seen most of the flicks listed, but Manhattan Baby was pretty cheesy as I recall.

    I hated Demonia!!
     
  9. I enjoyed almost every film on that list. I even liked Demonia. I absolutely loved Black Cat and Cat in the Brain.

    The one film I liked the least was Manhattan Baby.

    I've only seen about 9 or 10 Fulci films so far, but out of those, the worst was Demonia. I'm sure he's made even worse films than that, I bet.

    Sweet House of Horrors, hands down. I just like to pretend I never even saw it.

    hahah

    Yeah I saw the trailer to "Sweet House..." and I went - oh god no Fulci no! It just looked really bad in a bad way! "House of Clocks" looked pretty cool on the other hand(no pun intended)...

    Actually, everything he did was awful with the exception of "Duckling".

    He did more bad films than good ones. Manhattan Baby seems to stick out in my mind as his worst.

    I do not know why but I like Demonia. It IS bad but it has... something that I cannot define!
    I like Cat In The Brain, just because Fulci plays the main character and I like Touch Of Death because it was full of nihilism and hatred for everything. And it had tons of gore.
    The New Gladiators is FUN.
    Voices From Beyond is a good movie - it has style, atmosphere and is well shot.
    House Of Clocks is also fun and Sweet House Of Horrors is cool in a campy way.
    The Black Cat is shot with proffesionalism and is in scope so there is no way I am voting for that film.
    Aenigma is mediocre - poor man's PHENOMENA.

    But I'll go with Manhattan Baby. :D

    I voted for Manhattan Baby because that was the weakest of the Fulci films I've seen so far, but I still liked it

    I learned quick enough not to watch Italian films for logic and plot but to see a nightmare come to life, so to speak, and Manhattan Baby's incoherence actually aids it.

    And in spite of the incoherence, it was beautifully shot.

    I haven't seen any of the others on this list and haven't really felt the need to.
