Personal Quote:

I am not a criminal because I make horror films. A lot of Italian genre directors are animal lovers. Mario Bava loved cats, Riccardo Freda loves horses, and Dario Argento loves himself. See more »

Trivia:

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.
