Il Gatto Nero (1980)

Gatto Nero, Il (1980, ITA) C-92m. SCOPE ** D: Lucio Fulci. Starring Patrick Magee, Mimsy Farmer, David Warbeck, Al Cliver, Dagmar Lassander. Interesting variation of Edgar Allan Poe's The Black Cat: Photographer Farmer comes to small British town to photograph ruins, finds more interest in recent murders which were all obviously committed by a black cat! The creature's owner (Magee), an old weirdo, conducts experiments in the cemetery trying to record the voices of the dead. Then Scotland Yard cop Warbeck arrives. Underrated Fulci horror, with some stylish flourishes, but never really involving. Good music by Pino Donnagio. English title: THE BLACK CAT.
