Many killers destroy their victim’s heads –testa–  as in DEATH WALKS AT MIDNIGHT or Lucio Fulci’s THE BEYOND

(La Morte Accarezza a Mezzanotte,beyond4

Together with the head, some criminals prefer to mutilate the face –la faccia- as in L’IGUANA DALLA LINGUA DI FUOCO in which the victim face is destroyed by acid before cutting her throat with a razor.


Gore fans really enjoy when our murder is kind of obsessed with the eyes –gli occhi- as in Lenzi’s EYEBALL, Argento’s OPERA and Fulci’s THE NEW YORK RIPPER

Women’s belly –il ventre– is always taken into account as in Paolo Cavara’s BLACK BELLY OF THE TARANTULA where Zani’s belly is ripped open
