2019 Horror Challenge #4: 1981s The House by the Cemetery
My horror challenge for Halloween this year is a new one that I came up with: for each year I’ve been alive, I watch at least one film I haven’t seen before.
My fourth watch for the Halloween season is 1981s The House by the Cemetery by Fulci.
Ok, so the Gates of Hell trilogy is in the bag, and overall I enjoyed parts of each one, but I think the first is my favorite. However, there were some parts I enjoyed quite a bit in this third movie. For most of it, I was pretty bored, but I actually found the last act leading up to the end to be pretty effective with some genuine creepy moments. It was a pleasant surprise, which made the ending a little bit of a buzzkill, but the last bits in the cellar were really pretty good.
Rating this one the same as Part two.
