Lucio Fulci-many horror fans admire his work,I am also among them.However "Manhattan Baby" is one of his weaker efforts.First of all,the script by Dardano Sacchetti and Elisa Livia Briganti is very confusing.It borrows from "Rosemary's Baby","The Awakening","The Exorcist" and even "The Birds".The film is about a girl who,while in Egypt with her archaeologist father,is given an amulet that causes her to be possessed by the spirit of an ancient Pharaohess.There are some atmospheric shots,but the gore is almost completely absent(apart from the scene when the stuffed birds attack Adrian Marcato,rending his flesh as he dies screaming).Anyway if you're a huge Fulci fan like me you should watch this film,if not don't bother.
