"Manhattan Baby" sure is one controversial Fulci flick. I have friendswho love the man and hate this movie. I also have friends who don'tknow the man at all and love this movie.The plot is a bit silly. A girl is given a trinket on vacation in Egyptand it turns out to contain horrific powers of destr...
"Manhattan baby" is another supernatural horror movieshot during the Maestro's most prolific period.The movie being accorded only a fraction of the plannedbudget, it never had the chance to become what its makersprobably intended. Still it contains some beautiful surrealistic andatmospheric scenes w...
Hey - it's 1980 and Mr. Fulci wishes to do something 'not so horror'. So hecreated this tale about an Egyptian amulet which brings terrible tragedy toa New York family. I've seen about 15 of these Italian post-giallo horrors now from Fulci, Bavaand of course, Argento. I found this one to be relati...
Do you ever, after sitting through the viewing experience of a film,ask yourself, "What the f-k did I just watch?!" Well, I can relateafter watching this mind-boggling Fulci effort, replete with bizarreimages and unusual death sequences. A little girl named Susie(BrigittaBoccoli)is visiting Egypt wi...
Manhattan Baby is Fulci's dive into beautiful imagery. There's somescenes in this one that are genuinely breathtaking.A medallion from an archaeological dig leaves a man blind. And a familyfalls into jeopardy after their son disappears into thin air, and theirdaughter is possessed by an ancient demo...
We selected "Manhattan Baby" from the movie library last night, and Irealized that it was to be probably the 7th time I have watched thisrather uncelebrated Fulci offering in the past 5 years. Yes, this movieis a bit formulaic, and yes, it does move a bit slow in parts. Butthere is something undenia...
Lucio Fulci's MANHATTAN BABY isn't a great movie. As is often the casewith Fulci's pictures, the acting is wooden and the pace a little slow.But Fulci chooses this time around to de-emphasize the over-the-topgore for which he was infamous and concentrate on atmosphere withgenerally successful result...
This one is enough to test the patience of even the most tolerant fanof horror films with an "elliptical" narrative. For me, "ManhattanBaby" was a no-win situation.The opening was halfway decent, albeit entirely unoriginal: anarchaeologist ventures into the proverbial "cursed tomb". At the sametime,...
So, what's the worst Fulci film you've sat through? Is it Sweet Houseof Horrors? Well, that had some gore in it at least. Or it Aenigma?That one had some women in the scud, and a picture stabbing itself. Oris it Conquest? Well, I reckon that one is a classic myself, becauseit's got drug snorting wer...
This film IS very hard to follow, but easily worth the watch. Has theusual Fulci touches... gore, atmosphere, and even those cool cemented eyecontact lense things that he used in The Beyond. The score is anotherclassic by the genius Fabio Frizzi that perfectly sets the mood for thefilm....
Lucio Fulci made some real stinkers in his career and Manhattan Babycomes close to being the worst. The problem is the incoherent plot thatI'm not even going to attempt to explain. The plot centers around anEgyptian amulet with evil powers. The evil powers manifest themselvesin a series of totally u...
If Lucio Fulci could be considered the Ed Wood of Italian cinema, thenManhattan Baby might just be his very own Plan 9 From Outer Space. Thefilm's main strengths - if you want to look at it that way - are itscomplete ineptness, lack of coherence, inappropriate music and terribledubbing. If fails to ...
I really enjoyed seeing Mannhatten Baby which was directed by LucioFulci. Whilst On holiday in Egypt with George and Emily Hacker(Christopher Connelly and Martha Taylor), her archaeologist father andjournalist mother, a 10-year-old girl called Susie Hacker (BrigittaBoccoli)is approached by a mysteri...
The early 80s was a great time for Italian horror director Lucio Fulci.After the 1979 hit 'Zombi 2,' known in the US as 'Zombie,' he broughtus classics like 'City of the Living Dead' and 'The Beyond.' The latteris called his masterpiece by many and while my vote goes for theformer, it's still a soli...
On holiday in Egypt with George and Emily Hacker (Christopher Connellyand Martha Taylor), her archaeologist father and journalist mother,10-year-old Susie Hacker (Brigitta Boccoli) is approached by amysterious blind woman, who gives her an amulet with a blue-Jewelledeye in the center. Soon after, Ge...
For Fulci fans, this may be a bit disappointing considering the paceand the lack of heavy gore, but this is not to say that nothing strangeor ominous happens during the course of the film. In fact, i thoughtsome of the random and strange deaths were good payoffs in their ownright (i had to rewind a ...
Manhattan baby was a strange movie directed by the (in)famous Italiandirector Lucio Fulci. It was very hard to follow, but it was so visuallyscrumptious that you didn't care abot the plot flaws. A must for fans ofLucio Fulci or Dario Argento. ...
'Manhattan Baby' is second rate Fulci. People who love/hate Fulci's workusually mention two things - his nonsensical plots and his abundance ofgore. Unfortunately this movie has plenty of the former and hardly any ofthe latter, making it pretty dull and hard going viewing for the most part.It was co...
Manhattan Baby is a dreamlike masterpiece. Director Lucio Fulci all butabandoned gore in this movie, instead giving us beautiful visuals, anonieric atmosphere and a story told totally in dream logic.Fulci's obsession with eyes is well in evidence here, the main differencebeing that they're generally...
This is another film that gets down-graded unfairly because of thepopular films such as "The Beyond", "Zombi" and "City of the LivingDead". Gorehounds expect--naturally--the same gore-levels as thesefilms, which is also unfair. Besides, it's better to watch a film withno-expectations whatsoever. Tha...
Lucio Fulci was a great filmmaker and unquestionably one of the mostessential & influential horror directors that ever lived; still not allhis movies are masterpieces. This one could be considered as one of hisweaker efforts, especially because it got released amidst his mostnotorious achievements l...
Lucio Fulci-many horror fans admire his work,I am also among them.However"Manhattan Baby" is one of his weaker efforts.First of all,the script byDardano Sacchetti and Elisa Livia Briganti is very confusing.It borrows from"Rosemary's Baby","The Awakening","The Exorcist" and even "The Birds".Thefilm i...
Fulci may always be remembered fro living dead films (i.e. TheGates of Hell, Zombie), but there are a few diamonds in the roughthat are welcomed changes of pace (i.e. The Smuggler). Manhattan Baby qualifies as a diamond in the rough. ManhattanBaby is to The Exorcist as Zombie was to Dawn of the De...
First off, "Manhattan Baby" is not a very good title for this movie.There is no baby, though the film does take place in said city. Whichis not very surprising, Fulci loved New York often filming scenes andsuch there even when the city itself was not prevalent in the plot. Healso did not get permiss...
A mysterious woman gives a strange pendant to a little girl; the pendantturns out to have evil powers that eventually dominate the girl'spersonality and threaten the lives of her family and everyone else whohappens to cross her path. Sounds simple enough, eh? Well, in the way LucioFulci presents tha...
