My WTF entry is finished. I just need to do screencaps. And the film I’m doing offers so, so many choices. In the meantime, please enjoy Lucio Fulci flexing his hatred of humanity.

DON’T TORTURE A DUCKLING

There is a deep vein of cynicism running through the center of Lucio Fulci’s Don’t Torture a Duckling (aka Non Si Sevizia un Paperino). The same can be said for the vast majority of the man’s work. His filmography is littered with the bodies of people snuffed out in manners most gruesome, and their virtues are no ward against the brutalities (realistic or fantastic) of the world. Hell, in literal and metaphoric fashion, awaits us all in Fulci’s cinema. Rather than focusing on the supernatural, Don’t Torture a Duckling sets its sights on the innate evil in humanity
