Glass half Fulci

Advantages: Quite a good Blu-ray, I guess
Disadvantages: The film is terrible

This Blu-ray from 88 Films is £15 on amazon and at HMV at time of writing. Lucio Fulci had been a mildly interesting jack-of-all-trades Italian director during the late 60s and 70s (he made a couple of good gialli), but he only really came into his own i ...
