A Lizard In A Woman’s Skin | Una Lucertola con la Pelle di Donna

Lucio Fulci’s great giallo contribution can certainly be considered one of his best works and clearly shows that his talents went far beyond the production of bloody splatter effects.

Carol, who comes from elite London circles, is plagued by nightmares in which she breaks with the conventions of social behavior in 1970s London. When she finally dreams that she has killed her hedonistic hippie neighbor and she is actually found dead in her apartment, a surreal confusion begins in the wake of which the contrast between reality and fiction rapidly melts away. What corresponds to reality and is not already a dream? Has she murdered or is she the victim of a conspiracy …?

Lucio Fulci

Lucio Fulci was an Italian director, producer, screenwriter and actor. After primarily producing comedies, he turned to horror films and achieved cult status among genre aficionados for his exceedingly brutal splatter and gore excesses. In addition, Fulci was one of the first to increasingly deal with zombies in his films.
