For the second Freak-Out Friday evening of the season, the Festival honours Lucio Fulci, a craftsman of exploitation cinema who has dipped into all genres of popular Italian cinema with two gialli, both atypical, but greatly appreciated by fans of the genre.
Ash takes his girlfriend Linda on a romantic trip to an isolated cabin in the woods. They find a very old book and audio tape recorded by a Professor Knowby, a distinguished archaeologist. The book turns out to be The Book of the Dead, a famous grimoire or book of spells that was lost in the 14th century. The recovery of the book and the recorded incantations liberate evil forces in the forest.
