Personal Quote:

The budgets are the only difference between Dario Argento and myself. We are doing the same stuff. See more »


Together with Jesús Franco Fulci had 3 films listed on the original UK list of 74 official video nasties, namely Zombie (1979), The Beyond (1981) and The House by the Cemetery (1981). His City of the Living Dead (1980) narrowly missed the list following its recall and his later The New York Ripper (1982) was not only banned in the UK but also deported from the country by censor James Ferman.
