Presented in its original uncut form!
Lucio Fulci had helmed over two decades of work prior to 1979's Zombie and during this time his films were beholden to no single genre. Nonetheless, his ultra-violent, pseudo sequel to George A. Romero's Dawn of the Dead would place him firmly in the annals of horror cinema and henceforth he would be considered a horror icon alongside Dario Argento, John Carpenter and David Cronenberg. But unlike fellow Italian Argento, whose films are often set in his native Europe, Fulci's horror films depict fatalistic scenarios in unmistakably U.S. settings as far-reaching as Louisiana (The Beyond) and New England (City of the Living Dead). The latter is depicted in The House by the Cemetery, his 1981 film preceded by The Beyond and City of the Living Dead in what is popularly considered the "Gates of Hell" trilogy. The film was hindered by censorship for many years - it was banned in the UK along with other video nasties - and was not released in its original, uncut version for over two decades.
Preceded by a 35mm trailer reel containing other genre classics such as The New York Ripper, What Have they Done to Our Daughters and Shaolin Challenges Ninja.
Director: Lucio Fulci. 87 min. 1981. 35mm.
