DON’T TORTURE A DUCKLING
NON SI SEVIZIA UN PAPERINO
1972, AGFA, 105 min, Italy, Dir: Lucio Fulci

Although best known for his ultra-gory zombie chunk-blowers, Lucio Fulci directed several superb gialli in the ’70s, many of which rivaled Dario Argento’s in style and aesthetic. When young boys start turning up dead in a countryside town, a news reporter (played by cult icon Tomas Milian) hopes to crack the case. With suspects ranging from a local witch to a nymphomaniac, the real answer may be even more shocking.


CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST
1980, Grindhouse Releasing, 95 min, Italy, Dir: Ruggero Deodato

Ruggero Deodato's bleak and brutal masterpiece pulls no punches and is not for the squeamish. When a group of documentary filmmakers vanishes in the Amazon jungle, professor Harold Monroe goes on a rescue mission into the green inferno; while he doesn't find the crew, he does retrieve their footage. Hoping to unlock the mystery of the missing documentarians with the film, he instead finds the true heart of darkness. Part political commentary and part atrocity exhibit, CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST lives up to its notorious reputation - by the end you’ll be asking yourself, “Who are the real cannibals?”
