Déjà vu FulciBy Gorelord from East Sussex , 25 May 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]It's Fulci recycling Fulci.
Basically, it's a movie about a famous horror director named Lucio Fulci who, after many years of directing violent movie has finally lost touch with reality (no thanks to his shrink). He starts reliving the goriest scenes from all his movies. All the while, a serial killer is murdering various townfolks for no apparent reason. It's a weird and sick little flick, to say the least.
This movie exist for one reason: gore. It's like watching a "best of Lucio Fulci" reel. Most of the murders and gore scenes are lifted directly from previous Fulci movies like Ghosts of Sodom and Touch of Death. Fulci just walks from one gore scene to the next with very little story or purpose. It's a whole lot of fun to witness these ultra-violent scenes in quick succession, but it's also rather pointless.
Bottom line: It's fun to revisit classic Fulci scenes but just don't expect a coherent plot to go along with it. People who have seen very few Fulci films will love seeing this gore for the first time and long-time Fulci fans will have fun witnessing classic moments again. Recommended.

gore hounds onlyBy a customer from warrington , 26 Jan 2009this film makes about as much sense as it's title.bad acting and a mess of a plot,if you want to see a scary film look elsewhere.i give it 2 stars just for the gore but i did feel like i'd wasted a rental.
FULCI TRANSFERS HIS BEDSIDE NOTEPAD TO FILMBy Carl Chrystan from Bury, Lancashire , 28 Oct 2006This is quite an odd film, where Lucio Fulci plays Lucio Fulci, and is haunted by horrifying 'visions' of murder. We're made to think that this is because he's spent decades of his life making horror movies.
However, to me it's just a load of scene ideas that he's had over the years, all finally cobbled together.

fulci's worst filmBy paul john challoner from somerset , england , 28 Jan 2006Im a fan of fulcis earlier work but this film is his worst. An absolute awful story unfolds with fulci playing himself.He isnt an actor !This film is an absolute mess and I found it hard to understand at times. Rubbish fx also splatter through the movie ( check out the cat fx at the film opening )Bad dubbing, naff acting,boring story and an egotistical director at his worse. Avoid !!!
Dissapointed!By tommytwopintstensongs from derby , 16 Nov 2005Being a fan of some Lucio Fulci films, especially `Zombie Flesh Eaters` and `The Beyond` I was dissapointed here. I was intrigued at first, finding the story kind of interesting and original (PLOT SPOILER ALERT!! - The film within a film idea worked well) but about half way through I found myself wondering what else there was about the film that I liked and the answer was sadly...nothing! The plot at times seemed completely incoherent; at one point Lucio just happens to witness a murder in the woods where he seems to just turn up out of nowhere! The film is extremely voilent (and quite mysoginistic at times) and gory (which is actually pretty cool but the effects are a bit dodgy at times) which might appeal to some viewers. But I found that it lacked one of the qualities that I like about some of Fulci`s other films - Atmosphere.
