Episode 9 - Mi Dispiace Lucio

In episode 9 of the podcast, Mike and I attempt to make amends for all the bad things we've said about Lucio Fulci. We talk about two of his films that really impressed us both, 1972's Don't Torture a Duckling and 1982's The New York Ripper. These are both wonderful films that are distinctly and obviously "Fulci-films". These two are very different from each other, and even though "Don't Torture a Duckling" is focused on the murder of children, it ended up being far less grim and graphic than "New York Ripper" which is still very shocking in it's portrayal of sexualized violence. This podcast episode is quite a bit longer than our normal show, we began to ruminate on Lucio and lost track of time. We hope you enjoy it and that you will contact us with suggestions for future shows.
