This is a film I’m happy to defend and praise. First, the script is a lot better than it has any right to be. Horror films with great storytelling are rare and this one has it. Technically, the direction is spot on. Fulci is endlessly clever in filming his zombies and underlining his violence. Very effective editing is used throughout. The acting is dry and weird, but fitting. The setting and cinematography are gorgeous. Its a B-movie at the end of the day, but it transcends its label and becomes modern art.
