The Devil’s Honey / Il miele del diavolo ( Lucio Fulci,1986)

il miele del diavolo

From the uninvitingly flat vaseline-coated zoom-in on the protagonist’s face in the opening scene of The Devil’s Honey it immediately transpires that director Fulci is merely going through the motions with this erotic thriller. Bernard Seray (Hell of the Living Dead) is a delight in a supporting part as the overwrought, bitchy producer. Brett Halsey has impressive biceps but looks tired throughout. Lucio Fulci makes an uncharacteristic cameo as a street vendor. Technically competent bur lacking commitment The Devil’s Honey isn’t the film to remember Lucio Fulci by.
