Lucio Fulci directs Patrick Magee, Mimsy Farmer and David Warbeck in this U.K. set giallo that updates Edgar Allen Poe’s classic horror tale.
Quite reserved and staid by normal giallo standards and certainly one of Fulci’s calmest. The fact this often resembles an episode of Inspector Morse is no terrible thing. The animal wrangling work is marvellous and the deadly black cat is as cute as a button and full of personality. Not the most intense experience but quite classy.
