Critics reviews

What is most disturbing in this clunky metafilm is its portrayal of middle-aged Fulci’s solitary and melancholy life in a large, empty, tackily decorated Roman home. His wife had committed suicide in 1969, and his daughter, Camilla, died in a car crash shortly thereafter, and it seems like no great leap to say that Fulci’s growing interest in vivisection and putrefaction was something more than purely professional.
