April Fools Day

Tomorrow is April 1st and Elizabeth got me April Fools Day and Slaughter High for my birthday. (Slaughter High was originally titled April Fools Day, for that matter, so was Killer Party which she also got me but we went ahead and watched it. All three from 1986. Weird.) I've saved them for tomorrow. April Fools Day is a favorite from my childhood and I think I've only seen Slaughter High once. So how about it? Does anyone plan on watching either of these tomorrow? I'm thinking I'll turn it into a tradition like Halloween on Halloween, Black Christmas on Christmas Eve, and My Bloody Valentine on Valentine's Day.

I saw Zombie today

Oh hey there. I haven't posted in a while but it isn't because I don't love you. It's because I'm lazy.

So I watched Zombie today. The two disc deluxe Blue Underground bluray. It's been a while since I saw it. Zombie seems to be a lot of folks 'in' into Fulci. It was mine. And while it'll never be my #1 Fulci film, it does rank highly. I prefer his Gates Of Hell trilogy but without Zombie we wouldn't have likely gotten them. I used to think that long stretches of the film was boring. Everything clicked on my second or third viewing. And this bluray is outstanding. I really believe that Fulci belongs up there with the master directors of horror.

If there's anyone still reading after my long lazy absence, hit me up in the comments on your top 5 Fulci films.
