A snobbish CEO,
Constante Nicosia, gives everyone a hard time, including his wife
and relatives. He has allowed success and wealth to go to his head
even though he inherited both from his wife's rich, deceased father.
His major fault is an obsession with luck and superstition, believing
everything in life can be altered with a rabbit's foot, or salt from
the Mediterranean, or rubbing a hunchback's hump, or - after breaking
a mirror - convincing a virgin pee on the shards. But after an unusual
business trip to Romania, he returns as a (homosexual) bloodsucking
vampire; this forces him to re-examine his life.
horror/comedy from the legendary filmmaker Lucio Fulci was made between
his Spaghetti Western FOUR
FOR THE APOCALYPSE and the Edwige Fenech sex comedy SISTER-IN-LAW
(La Pretora), four years before ZOMBIE,
the movie that gave him International fame. In the documentary, AENIGMA:
LUCIO FULCI AND THE '80s, he says this is one of his top five
favorite films. Much has been written about Mr Fulci throughout this
website. But one thing always causes major discussion among his fans:
the mystery behind his death. After shooting a melancholy horror film
TO SILENCE [it would be his last], Lucio's diabetes took a
turn for the worst. On the evening of March 13, 1996, he went to bed
without taking his insulin. Some say this was suicide; others, an
accident. But sadly, Mr Fulci did not live through the night. He was
dead at age 68.
