Manhattan Baby

Manhattan Baby ★★★

Horror Hunt #43 (January 2022)

10. Blue Underground

Look, I watched this right before I had to start putting all my energy and wake hours into an exam and uh... I have forgotten most of what was even happening in this so I'll take that as a sign that this isn't exactly top tier Lucio Fulci. But even lesser Fulci tends to have something nice going for it. I remember the atmospheric thunderstorms, some dude being sent to a desert all of a sudden and also a stuffed bird coming back to life and fucking some dude up badly. Lucio, I just love you, you sunovabitch :') But I also remember the return of B O B from Fulci's The House by the Cemetery. Bob 2: Electric Bobaloo.

That title cracks me up though. I could see the Manhattan clearly but where was the baby, exactly? I like to imagine that we live in a timeline where somebody somehow mistook this for Three Men and a Baby, and unknowingly subjected themselves to Lucio Fulci instead. A blessed mistake to make, really.
