Stephen Thrower on Lucio Fulci

20 years on from his death, Lucio Fulci, director of much loved classics such as Zombie Flesh Eaters, The Beyond and City of the Living Dead, still retains a reputation for sheer determination, controversy and love of outright gore, even though his films covered much more than just horror. Acclaimed writer Stephen Thrower, author of the uncoming re-issue of Beyond Terror: The Films of Lucio Fulci, presents a special talk looking back on the life and career of possibly one of the greatest Italian horror film directors ever, Lucio Fulci.
