A big hit with the hard-core gore fans, this was director Lucio Fulci's follow-up to the incredibly bloody ZOMBIE, and he really outdoes himself this time. Filmed in 1980, Fulci's ostensible ode to H.P. Lovecraft is laughably set in Dunwich, although it's obvious the film was shot in

Italy. When a parish priest hangs himself in the church cemetery, the gates of hell open up, allowing all manner of zombies to rise up and mutilate the living. Since there is little in the way of plot, the film concentrates on the gore--scalpings, maggots, a really graphic electric drill through

the skull, and, most revolting of all, a woman who literally spews her guts out. If this appeals to you, you've no doubt already seen the movie.
