From Lucio Fulci, the director of New York Ripper, comes his utterly bizarre descent into a surreal world of creepy kids, Egyptology, flesh tearing birds, walls that bleed, creepy tombs and much more!
A succinct plot synopsis is frankly near impossible but here goes: There's a possessed Egyptian amulet, what looks like a gate to hell and rip-off moments from a variety of classic genre films including The Exorcist, The Awakening, The Birds, The Omen and most notably Rosemary's Baby.
Despite the dubious plotting Fulci was at the height of his powers when he made this highly atmospheric and stunningly shot horror film that makes up in classic set pieces and pierced eyeballs what it lacks in coherence!
Manhattan Baby (cert. 18) will be released uncut (for the first time in the UK) on DVD (£12.99) by Shameless Screen Entertainment on 28th January 2008. The film will be presented remastered in 2.35:1 with English 2.0 sound. Also included on the disc is a Shameless original trailer gallery.
