"A well done play on the classic Poe story, Lucio Fulci style." - Ken Kish, Cinema Wasteland

"It's pretty interesting. I can think of a movie with more closeups of eyes." - Michael J. Weldon, The Psychotronic Video Guide

The Black Cat reminds us that nobody's ever done "unhinged" quite like Patrick Magee (A Clockwork Orange). He's a delight to watch, his bug-eyed yet nuanced approach to scenery-chewing alone is worth the price of admission." - C.D. Workman,

Italy's own "Godfather of Gore" goes Gothic! Lucio Fulci (Zombie, The Gates of Hell) gruesomely reimagines the classic Edgar Allan Poe tale with Patrick Magee (A Clockwork Orange) and Mimsy Farner (The Perfume of the Lady in Black) in tow. When a young couple goes missing in a sleepy English village, Scotland Yard Inspector Gorley (David Warbeck, The Beyond) is brought in to assist on the case. But what starts off as routine investigation turns into a murder inquiry when the couple are found dead in mysterious circumstances.

Fusing a classically creepy atmosphere with more decidedly visceral elements that are the hallmark of Fulci's films, The Black Cat is a too-often overlooked and underrated entry in the Italian master filmmaker's canon.
