    This is Lucio Fulci film about Lucio Fulci losing his mind. Definitely worth checking out.

    Fulci plays himself in this film that recycles old clips and seems to say "I'm getting to old for this shit." After decades of making gialli, Fulci's grip on reality fades and he begins to experience hallucinations. These "hallucinations" are a convenient way to reuse some of his favorite bits from his previous movies. The name of his boat is so appropriate.

    A great idea with a poor execution. The problem with this movie is the use of way too many clips from other movies (some not even made by Lucio Fulci). I expected some fun scenes where Fulci is reenacting scenes from his movie, but instead we get him reacting to things off camera while the movie cuts to scenes from other movies. It's actually very amateurish and is almost like something children do with a family camera by inter splicing stuff they shoot with movies they watch. Mostly just a disappointing movie.

    Lucio Fulci's goriest film to date and least Fulci-est atmosphere!

    One of legendary Fulci's final films. It's very self-reflective and has similarities to 8 1/2 and Stardust Memories. That is, if Fellini & Allen were on crack. Let's face it, it's a terrible movie - awful from start to finish. But what do you expect from a video nasty? Still banned in the UK, this might be Fulci's goriest film ever. He plays himself in it and wanders around confused, having constant hallucinations of dead people. There's one gory set piece after another - nonstop. Nasty fans will not be disappointed. (Wes Craven kinda ripped this off for Nightmare on Elm Street 7).

    Tongue in cheek, black comedy gorefest starring Fulci as himself plagued by hallucinations from some of his worst films (ie Sodoma's Ghost). Fulci's last good & splattery film before he passed away in 1996.

    A Cat In The Brain is the 8 1/2 of horror movies, directed by the one and only Lucio "grandfather of gore" Fulci. It's a must for fans of his work, re imagining some of his classic imagery on a story where a troubled horror director gets haunted by visions of his own work. And guess what, that director is Lucio himself on an hilariously bad role. A surprisingly smart and completly over the top gory ride showcasing a nice resumé of Fulci's work. Definently not for the faint of heart.

    A curious and demented film. It's an exploitation version of 8 1/2.
