Movie Info

This cult horror film from director Lucio Fulci lurches along with a certain amount of disjunction due to cutting, perhaps, if not to an innate Fulci disposition. When the Boyle family temporarily moves into a mansion near Boston so the father can do some research, the son Bob (Giovanni Frezza) starts seeing the ghost of a young girl motioning to him, and eventually he discovers the basement's terrible secret. A certain Dr. Freudstein (Giovanni de Nari) has been hanging out there since 1879 when

What's not to love about film that has a haunted house, a mad scientist, a cemetery, flesh-eating cellar-dwelling zombies, an evil imaginary friend, a clueless cavalcade of victims, gore galore, AND an over-the-top vampire bat-bite?

Typical borderline incoherent Fulci rubbish.

Tedious follow up to Fulci's entertaining ZOMBIE. Features the most annoying kid in the history of cinema.

Someone built another house on top of a graveyard. Dummies!

Audience Reviews for The House By The Cemetery (Quella villa accanto al cimitero)

A family moves into a home with a creature in the basement who pops out every now and then to kill someone. Silly gore, atrocious dubbing, mediocre scares.

Another terrifying Italian shocker from the legendary Lucio Fulci. A family move into a creepy old house and are unaware that living in the cellar is the flesh-eating zombie of a 19th Century surgeon. The little boy is soon a friend with the ghost of the late doctors daughter who warns them to stay away but to little effect. The creature gruesomely kills and dismembers a variety of Estate Agents, Copulating teenagers and Babysitters leading to a terrifying finale in the corpse-strewn cellar. The Lucio Fulci trademark of graphic gore is abundant as ever but it is the atmosphere that makes this movie stand out. Bumps in the night and the ominous crying of children coming from the cellar are just some of the factors that assault and disturb the viewer. This is a truly amazing movie that relies on shock and terror rather than revulsion. The gore just adds to what is already a truly chilling little tale of cannibalism and depravity that will linger in the mind long after you've forgotten about the illogical plot and poor dubbing. One of Fulci's best films. Deserves its cult reputation.

博士Freudsteinは、古い家の地下室に住んでいる150歳の怪物や人間のような生き物であり、彼は地下室の壁に彼の犠牲者の遺体を続けている。彼の犠牲者に恐ろしい実験を予備成形後、もちろん、彼は脳手術の大ファンと思われる。物事は、この大きな古い家に、家族の動きが滞在することに順番を取る。 Freudsteinはもう存在を望んでいないまで日間に奇妙なことが起こる。



文字の80%は:今私はしばらくの間、これを見て待っていると、私はついになかった博士Freudsteinはすごいです! XDさん。彼は、医療訴訟で、この150年の歴史外科医であり、彼は生きている人々で動作し、彼はほとんどの時間は、ムービーを考えた彼の犠牲者の身体の部分を身に着けている。それ以外は大丈夫です。

Didn't like this one that much upon first viewing - wasn't use to Italian film at the time - but I eventually came around to enjoying it enough to consider it one of Fulci's best. Creepy and occasionally gory but the cheesy sound effects and annoying music and dubbing do wear on the mind. Still, very good.
