Fulci’s Henry James tombhouse nightmare... slathered in a hazy New England atmosfear that oozes with dissonance.
House by the Cemetery feels like the perfect melding of City of Living Dead and The Beyond (and a few other classic Fulci-isms), the previously mentioned Henry James, and much to his dismay.. The Shining (Sorry lucio it’s true even though you deny it lol) taking the best elements that shine and turning the screw all the way up with gratuitous gore, brutal stabbings, and one hell of an iconic murder House... not just by a cemetery, but IN one!
Not my favorite of the trilogy, but I’ll never say no to watching this James/Shining mashup—the new blu underground release looks fantastic and I can’t stop listening to the soundtrack (one of my favs!).
If there was a gate to hell, I can think of no better doom house to sit on top of it than this. 5 stars.
