    Se Sud e Magia fosse un film di quelli belli.

  4. Paolo Simeone's rating of the film Don't Torture a Duckling

    It really aged badly and I wonder what International fans could get out of horribly dubbed southern dialect, but, well, I started watching movies from other reason since I was younger. So I could not avoid loving the external locations, lying not too far from my place. I found funny enough Abruzzo and Puglia were used to fake a village in Basilicata.

  6. Nick Schwab's rating of the film Don't Torture a Duckling

    One of Fulci's early-period misses. As it starts so well, but the middle drags with its many characters and too much repetition. The procedural element of the case also has too many red herrings and purposeless scenes. Despite the atmosphere building garnering diabolic unease, the pace picks up somewhat after the hour mark. The whipping scene would have been ghastlier, but the musical choice during it feels wrong.

  9. Jaspar Lamar Crabb's rating of the film Don't Torture a Duckling

    Despite a draggy pace, there's a lot going on in this Fulci film. Florinda Bolkan is astounding.

  10. Pymo's rating of the film Don't Torture a Duckling

    Like a creepy lullaby...

  11. Joshua's rating of the film Don't Torture a Duckling

    One of the better gialli in the genre, Fulci's style and perverseness is seen all over. The pedophilic Bouchet and what I think is a main critique of the religious idea of hell and how to get there. The greatest scene has to be the chaining of the superstitious outcast, which is one of the most tragic that I've witnessed. Fulci is stronger on second viewings after they've settled.

  12. Federico Di Folco's rating of the film Don't Torture a Duckling

    Un giallo a tinte forti,per di più su un tema delicato come l'omicidio seriale dei bambini.L'utilizzo della collettività turbata è il cuore pulsante di questo film,in cui i molti personaggi che ruotano attorno alla vicenda accrescono da subito i sospetti.Grandioso l'apporto dato da Florinda Bolkan;la scena della flagellazione è magnifica. Fulci,come al solito,gira alla grande con due lire e sforna un vero cult.4*

  13. ElTigreNegro's rating of the film Don't Torture a Duckling

    Milian sporting the most outrageous 70s porn moustache mankind has ever seen. It has it's moments, but Fulci did better things.

  14. film_lies101's rating of the film Don't Torture a Duckling

  15. Konrad Szlendak's rating of the film Don't Torture a Duckling

    Brilliant, one of the best movies Fulci ever made. Scenes with a witch being killed and a dramatic fall of a priest in the finale are priceles!

  16. Matt's rating of the film Don't Torture a Duckling

    I hate titles that tell me what to do! If I want to answer the phone, look in the basement, go to the park, open the door, or torture a duckling then damn it, I'm gonna' it! YOU'RE NOT THE BOSS OF ME, MOVIE!

  17. HKFanatic's rating of the film Don't Torture a Duckling

    I love Fulci but this wasn't his best. Strange (even for him), slow-paced, with the screenplay juggling way too many peripheral characters. However, it's all nearly saved by the scene where a man's face is scraped off as he falls down a cliffside.

  18. Christopher R. Smith's rating of the film Don't Torture a Duckling

    A masterpiece, easily one of Italian horror maestro Lucio Fulci's finest. Despite it's low budget and B-movie trappings, a masterfully-crafted work of gothic surrealism that takes the giallo genre to new heights with its novel camerawork, offbeat characters, tense atmosphere, and a great score by Riz Ortalani. One of the true masterpieces of Italian exploitation.

  20. High Contrast's rating of the film Don't Torture a Duckling

    A very evasive film. You can never pin down exactly what type of film it is or even who the lead character is. Uncharitable sorts might attribute this to low budget hack work. But I think Fulci has hidden depths. And I enjoy this kind of gear-shift cinema. You never know what's coming next. The devastating torture scene in this film must surely have influenced Tarantino, it even has a pop radio accompaniment.

  21. Matt Burgess's rating of the film Don't Torture a Duckling

    A charming giallo from Fulci but a little too linear and conventional for its own good, however loved Barbara Bouchet as the small town seductress. The memorable sequence where the townspeople avenge the boy's death by brutally beating the crap out of the crazed voodoo lady is tragic and heartbreaking, one of Fulci's finest moments
