Simone Scafidi, Italy, 2019, Severin Films, Docs

“The filmmaker’s purpose is to demonstrate how Fulci harbored a lot of inner pain from the more tragic events in his life, and how he exorcised that pain on screen through the gore and horror.” -- Meagan Navarro, BLOODY DISGUSTING

He was known as The Maestro of Splatter and The Godfather of Gore -- but who was the real Lucio Fulci? In this half-doc/half-biopic, an actor (Nicola Nocella) agrees to portray the infamous director only after he researches the triumphs, tragedies, and truths behind Fulci’s legacy. Through never-before-seen home movies, audio confessions from Fulci himself and revealing interviews (including composer Fabio Frizzi, cinematographer Sergio Salvati, former assistant Michele Soavi and the participation of daughters Antonella and Camilla Fulci), FULCI FOR FAKE creates an unflinching portrait of a most visceral, controversial and immortal horror filmmaker.
