    The Italian horror movies of the 60s/70s/80s continue to be a bit of a blind spot for me—I’ve always kept them at arms-length, perhaps due to being scarred by Fulci’s “The Beyond”, a classic in the minds of many horror movie fans, but to me, one of the most boring movies I’ve ever seen. I always make a point of leaving my phone in another room when watching…
