The House by the Cemetery (1981)
14 May 2012
Conclusion: It is very clear that Arrow Films did everything they could to make this Blu-ray release the definitive release of Lucio Fulci's The Last House by the Cemetery . The supplemental features are simply outstanding and a good enough reason to strongly recommend the release.
Conclusion: The House by the Cemetery isn't kin to the modern "torture porn" sort of movie, but it shares with that subset one undeniable truth: they both relish the visual atrocities committed in them well ahead of story and characterization.
Conclusion: 'The House by the Cemetery' is a gruesome, occasionally tense, but mostly nonsensical and unoriginal work of Italian horror. Though gory and sporadically entertaining, there just isn't enough creativity to outweigh the laughable plot and thin characterizations.
Summary: Het verhaal is simpel, en heeft zelfs wat weg van Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining, dit zou eigenlijk niet kunnen kloppen, omdat Luci Fulci in een interview heeft aangegeven dat hij Stanley Kubrick waardeert maar The Shining een teleurstelling vond.
