One of my favorite Fulci films which its about a killer going around strangling young boys. What I really like about Duckling is that is one of the few Fulci films that i have seen that does not rely on gore, the narrative is more of a straight murder/mystery than most of his films that followed. Its violent and intense but that comes more from the story and not special effects. As i stated before Fulci tends to have issue with plot holes riddles through out his films and this is only the other one besides Zombie that i felt that did not have those holes to deal with



I am a huge fan of this and i hope we have other fans as well

This is Fulci's stab at giallo and a great one it was...way ahead of its time, and the subject matter was pretty taboo at the time as well...

Of course everyone recognizes Fulci as The God Father Of Gore and generally skip this one, but it is well worth a look...

I can see that since that's one of his stabs (no pun intended Laughing ) at that genre, same thing can be said about Lizard In a Woman's Skin too. To me that's very akin to Argento.
