Editorial Reviews

The star of New York's ARTISTIC DANCE CENTRE lies dead in the center's shower. A large hat-pin protrudes from her bare has pierced her heart, killing her instantly. She will be the first of many dancers to die a similar death in a series of mysterious murders that will baffle New York's finest police, and lead to speculation that another dancer at the Centre is responsible. The mysterious directress, Candice, sets out to find the killer, with a little assistance from a shady male model named George, who has a hidden agenda. Ambition and jealousy...the motive. A classic "who-done-it" with great plot and beautiful cast.

Lucio Fulci's Murder Rock is a brilliant Giallo. For those familiar with his work they'll be happy to know that this one is pretty fun, straightforward and fast paced. Fulci cut on the Gore this time to bring us something different, a very good Mystery/Thriller with good twists. Probably one of the best of his late career and a perfect addition to the 80's italian Giallo masterpieces.

Unlike Fulci's other movies, Murder Rock is not as dark and obscure, it has a very bright tone to it. Laughter, Music, Dance and Choreography are very present throughout the whole movie, making it a very entertaining ride all the way through the end. Dont get me wrong, this is not a comedy, far from it, its a Giallo at 100%, sometimes brutal and merciless but its fresh and its fun too. I think Fulci and the crew had a lot of fun making it. Never had that feeling before while watching a Fulci film. Catchy rock tunes from the 80's and dancy music is also something we dont hear very often in Fulci's movies. Although slightly different in terms of style,the movie is still on par with Argento's horror masterpiece "Opera", just a little more groovy musically.

Aside from working very hard to make sure they'll be chosen to perform in the next competition, the dancers from a prestigious ballet/workout School in NY are in deep trouble when they finnd out that a killer on the loose is trying to kill them one by one......... The cinematography/Photography here is exceptional,way above many films of that era,the colors are vivid, the picture is crisp, clear and of very high quality. I've rarely seen a movie of that era with such a nice picture quality.

Ok, so a lot of "fans" of the genre (giallo) or of the director (Fulci) don't like this one. I think the biggest reason for that is because Fulci is the "Godfather of Gore" and this movie has next to none. It was obviously a chance to cash in on the Flashdance craze, but it's cashing in in a seedy, dirty, Italian mystery kinda way. I really like this one, and think overall it is one of Fulci's best films, but completely underrated. If you like gialli, and can stand to chuckle at some 80's legwarmers dancing fools, check this one out.

...I had never heard of this movie before I saw myself staring at it at the store. As soon as I saw the name "Fulci" I was almost sold. I knew being a different kind of film from the usual Fulci gorefests, that this one would not be like those, but I gave it a chance anyway. I was surprised, it was not as bad as I thought it would be. In this movie you can see a different type of Fulci, as there is not gore---yes there is killing but it is only stabbing. I liked the 80's music, it gave the film authenticity for its time. If you appreciate the work of Lucio Fulci give this one a try, it is different from his other films, but not bad by any means. I liked it way better than Anthropaphagus (I know they have nothing in common, but I feel I wasted by money on that stinker). Worth viewing at least once, if you can afford it I would add it to your library of Fulci works.
