  1. FISCHER's rating of the film The House by the Cemetery

    Sanglant et horrible au possible, un film secondaire qui néglige toutes les ouvertures vers le fantastique pour alimenter son scénario de baveuses scènes-chocs, inutiles et stupides ... www.cinefiches.com

  2. Pedderrs's rating of the film The House by the Cemetery

    I really struggle with Lucio Fulci's horror offerings. They tend to be poorly acted, poorly dubbed and the premises are both ridiculous and unconvincing. A lot of the same criticisms can be levelled at Argento and Bava but at least those two consistently deliver on an aesthetic level. Don't get me wrong, there are some beautiful sequences and striking imagery here, but there's also a lot of awkward and clunky ones.

  3. Nick Schwab's rating of the film The House by the Cemetery

    Critiquing art is not a science. It's intuitive, an investigation of emotion felt while experiencing it. And, Lucio Fulci, is a filmmaker that often lacks comprehension, and thus, purely invokes an emotional response. That's also why I go through long periods of loving, then hating his work, and then liking it again, etc. This nears The Beyond's lucid nightmare state: fleetingly tangible, if emotionally cryptic.

  4. Paul Mallinson's rating of the film The House by the Cemetery

    Ridiculous film (and dialogue), but UNBELIEVABLE gore effects! Just wish there were more.

  5. Henri de Corinth's rating of the film The House by the Cemetery

    Weakest of the 'gates of hell' trio.

  6. cherbourgdoll's rating of the film The House by the Cemetery

    it was ok, not my fave lucio fulci movie but had its moments

  7. Nachtreich's rating of the film The House by the Cemetery

  8. Rocco's rating of the film The House by the Cemetery

    Fulci's take on the slasher genre. Considered part of his "Gates of Hell" Trilogy but very unlike the other two. Lacking in creativity and plagued by a generic soundtrack. When Freudstein finally shows up, the film comes alive, but one is left frustrated by the out of place twist ending. The fabricated Henry James quote that Fulci ends the film with is just the cherry on top of a very confusing, maggoty cake.

  9. Bob's rating of the film The House by the Cemetery

    Somber landscapes, cobwebs and dust with melancholic atmosphere and of course, worms and rotting flesh. Taking into account that it functions somewhere between Frankenstein, haunted house and zombie flick, this movie brings almost every little horror detail to celebrate whether if it wants to be a grindhouse trash or the art macabre. Perfect for All Saints Day because it's too much of a downhill for Halloween.

  10. Mister No's rating of the film The House by the Cemetery

  11. S Campbell's rating of the film The House by the Cemetery

    nasty and loads of gore but then again its a lucio Fulci movie and its one of the best

  12. Pymo's rating of the film The House by the Cemetery

    And you follow me in the basement...

  13. Howard Orr's rating of the film The House by the Cemetery

    Disappointing Fulci. Yes, the special effects are great, but it feels a little like a cashing-in on films like "The Amityville Horror" rather an effort stamped with Fulci's own fertile imagination. It lacks the chilling novella economy of "Seven Notes In Black" or "The Beyond", even if the ending (Henry James and all) nods to the neatness of those films.

  14. Fabio Nosotti's rating of the film The House by the Cemetery

  15. ElTigreNegro's rating of the film The House by the Cemetery

    Lucho you crazy bastard, the third film in his "it came from hell to kill you" trilogy, from which City of the Living Dead and The Beyond form part, is another delicious nightmarish spectacle of the grotesque and the supernatural. I was surprised at how conventional the movie remains, and yet how it still manages to surprise you. Fantastic ending.

  16. Konrad Szlendak's rating of the film The House by the Cemetery

    Brilliant! So simple and so tense, terror-laden. I'm not really a genre fan, but Fulci makes it worth your while!

  17. João Eça's rating of the film The House by the Cemetery

    honestly, one of the worst films i have ever watched. ridiculous.

  18. wolfmansRazor's rating of the film The House by the Cemetery

    Starts off really slowly, and the incident is absurd, but it's all worth it for Dr. Freudstein. Italian horror isn't usually known for its monsters but Freudstein is creepy enough to rival the likes of Freddy Krueger and Pinhead. A faceless ghoul with one hand who bleeds maggots? Yes, please! However, the dubbing of the child actor (who, incidentally, looks like a very young Klaus Kinski) is extremely annoying.

  19. Joshua's rating of the film The House by the Cemetery

    We all know Anne will die. It's foretold. Is this just Bobby's imagination? Maybe nobody really died, but the young boy definitely escaped the horror he witnessed into a type of purgatory. Great, now I feel as if I am watching (a far gorier) Phantasm. I do not quite have all of the kinks worked out in my mind, but neither should the adults who look into it. The thin air manifestations are what holds Villa together.

  20. gloryofistanbul's rating of the film The House by the Cemetery

    This is not bad apart from terrible dubbing and irritating soundtrack, unlike most i hated the over the top soundtracks of most 70's slashers

  21. Matt's rating of the film The House by the Cemetery

    Like most Fulci movies, it's got great fx, great direction, bad dubbing and an almost completely incoherent script. In this case, I think the good outweighs the bad.

  22. nothere's rating of the film The House by the Cemetery

    One of Fulci's better outings. Copiate amount of gore, screams, and a villain that bleeds maggots, all the while crying like a child. Mr. Fulci U so crazy.
