DON`T TORTURE A DUCKLING (fanatismo; non si sevizia un paperino; voodoo) (1972 ITALY) D/W: LUCIO FULCI W: GIANFRANCO CLERICI/ROBERTO GIANVITI
One of the most underrated features of all time and quite possibly Fulci`s best. All of Argento`s giallos pale in comparison to this raw, savage tale of child murder in a remote Sicilian mountain village. There`s an excellent chain-whipping in a cemetery set to music that predates Tarantino (and Scorsese) and does it better, and you probably won`t guess who the killer is. Only the ropey FX at the very end let it down a little. Tomas Milian stars, with Barabra Bouchet, Florinda Bolkan, Irene Papas, Georges Wilson, Andrea Aureli, Linda Sini and Franco Balducci. Disturbing and highly recommended.
