The Wax Mask : What a bad movie

What a bad movie

Just one violent death nothing more. I was very disaponted. Lucio Fulci should have lived to direct this movie. Then i would be very violent. I think he shoulda maked more movies in 90`s.

Re: What a bad movie

I don't think the movie was to bad, I've seen a lot worst. I do agree that Fulci would have done better, and it is a shame that he didn't make more films in the 90's but you have to understand, Fulci was very sick and did very little in his last years. He was sick long before Zombie 3 in 1988. We fans just have to be thankful we had him as long as we did.

Re: What a bad movie

Is this a joke? I highly doubt this disappointing movie could've been saved by Fulcior anyone else. The fault is in the script/story (whichno surprisewas co-written by Fulci). I thought the director did a very good job with what he had to work with - his style resembled Argento's more than Fulci's - which was one of the things that saved this movie from being completely terrible. The dialogue/dubbing is what kills this flick (aside from the cornball cg effects). Even though it was dubbed I'm sure Fulci is to blame. The dialogue in every one of his movies is almost always laughably illogical and/or ridiculous. The only italian writer/director with a worse dialogue track-record is probably Claudio Fragasso. Besides, I've seen plenty of Fulci's flicks and have to say that I have yet to be seriously impressed by a single one of them. I actually think this bad movie would have been worse had Fulci directed it.

earthcaughtfire your having a go at the script when argento created the story fulci made the screenplay out of what argento give him to work with i reckon fucli wouldve owend if he directed this!or argento one of them should of bloody directed it!

lucio fulci GOD FARTHER OF GORE R.I.P

Re: What a bad movie

I've actually changed my mind about Fulci since I wrote that little rant. Just yesterday I saw his movie "Perversion Story" and was, in fact, seriously impressed with it. I admit now that my comments were a bit off base and have since changed my mind. I was actually about to delete my previous posting.

Re: What a bad movie

Where can you even see the trailer previews for these movies? I did searches and can't find anything. I imagine that the hardcore fans just buy the movies without watching them?

This forum is slow so please pm me if anyone can answer where I can see some previews to this Fulci's work and other great Italian Horror film makers. I've heard a lot about Italian Horror films from the old days but haven't been able to see much. When you all watch them do they at least have the writing on the screen in English?

Re: What a bad movie

I saw the trailer for this flick on one of Argento's films. It may have been Sleepless, but for the life of me I can't remember. It's been a while. The trailer makes it look like a pretty cool flick but judged by everyones negative reaction to film I have yet to spend the 20 to 30 plus bucks for it

Re: What a bad movie

I've seen much much worse, but it's essentially just the messed up italian version of House of Wax. It had some relatively decent effects, but they were underused and it just didn't live up to it's potential. Not something I'd ever bother watching again.

Re: What a bad movie

After watching this movie I was disspointed that I had to spent so much for a vhs.The movie was not terrible but it was really mediocre and could have been so much better.

Re: What a bad movie

It has so many good things about it and so many BAD things also. The good things areThe movie is very visual which is cool, the make-up effects are awesome along with the computer effects, and it has some cool production design(especially the room where people are turned into wax creations). Now whats bad isMost of the acting is bad especially the main female and good guy characters, the end turns into a weird terminatoresque finale, and some characters are not explained well (what happened to the bald guy with the scar) and the last minute/minute and a half is one of the worst endings i've ever seen..what can i say i like this movie and yet i dislike it too..still though it could have been better.

Re: What a bad movie

Why would you become very violent? Yer taking this movie WAY too seriously, bro.

Re: What a bad movie

I disagree. I thought this was a nicely done Italian horror shocker. I especially dug that this movie was basically an old-fashioned Gothic moodfest done with more explicit modern gore and nudity.
