"Seven Doors of Death" is a frightening horror movie from the master of the genre Lucio Fulci. The special effects and makeup used for the horrible deaths are amazing, as well as the movements of the camera. The scary story has an unexpected surprising twist in the very end and certainly this movie may be considered one of the best movies of horror ever. My vote is eight.
Title (Brazil): "A Casa do Além (VHS)" ("The House from Beyond")
