    I dunno, I think House kinda' fits but to say it's part of an intended trilogy is a real stretch. It's probably just marketing BS
    I see the opening the gates of hell theme throughout the three films but I have never really viewed them as an intended trilogy. Just standalone films imo. I'm sure Fulci never intended that, but I'm no expert.

    I believe there's an interview somewhere where Lucio agreed that the 4 films were thematically similar and could be seen as a quartet but it wasn't his intent.

    Just watched The House of Clocks (1989). What a wonderfully weird little flick this is. Even before time starts to run backward there is already an air of "what the fuck is going on here?" about it and it just gets more and more random. Obviously is screams made for TV but there's a certain charm to that kind of look I think, plus all the soft focus work and bright lighting look gorgeous. Karina Huff is real easy on the eyes as well. Really good later Fulci if you ask me.

    I think House of Clocks is his last good horror film. The only thing that hurts it is some really bad dubbing. That and I think the lead actress was several months pregnant, notice that we never see her from the waist down.

    Good flick. Surprisingly nihilistic.

    I love the line towards the end, "I couldn't even relax with a joint of good stuff."

    ZOMBIE is my favorite of his horror films followed by CITY OF THE LIVING DEAD, followed by THE BEYOND.

    FOUR OF THE APOCALYPSE is one of my favorite spaghetti westerns.

    I watched "House of Clocks" today. Good film, nice made for tv vibes.

    By the way, did Badalamenti / Lynch rip off the music in this film for Twin Peaks or what?!

    Hideo Kojima (very famous game developer, most famous for the Metal Gear franchise) is a fan of Fulci and The Beyond.

    Let me pose a question: since City of the Living Dead and the Beyond have Lovecraftian elements, that is the town of Dunwich in City, the Book of Eibon (which was an invetion by Clark Ashton Smith who contributed to the greater Cthulhu mythos) and a world-ending apocalypse, would you consider The Beyond and City to be part of the greater Cthulhu mythology?
