Great Lucio Fulci horror...
11 October 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed seeing Mannhatten Baby which was directed by Lucio Fulci. Whilst On holiday in Egypt with George and Emily Hacker (Christopher Connelly and Martha Taylor), her archaeologist father and journalist mother, a 10-year-old girl called Susie Hacker (Brigitta Boccoli)is approached by a mysterious blind woman, who gives her an amulet with a blue-jewelled eye in the middle of it. after, Not long after her farther George is made blind by a bright piercing blue light when he enters a unexplored tomb. Back in New York, George is told that the loss of his eyesight will only be temporary. Susie begins to act strangely,and her younger brother Tommy (Giovanni Frezza), who stayed behind in New York,is also affected by the amulet. Emily their mother discovers that both of them are appearing and disappearing out of their rooms every day and night.Susie and Tommy have gained supernatural access to doorways. A few days later, George's eyesight returns, and he describes the design on the wall of the tomb he'd entered to a friend called Wiler, he guesses that it may be the Sacred Symbol of the Grand Shadow, a sight of terrible evil.
