I guess I can’t let the day go without wishing my favorite Italian director a birthday wish. It’s been 25 years since we lost this great talent, but it thrills me to know that not only do his films live on (which then keeps him alive) but that his fan base seems to keep growing with each year. Of course that means that every new year, we have more movie fans dedicating more of their time to the horror genre, wanting to learn about history of the genre, and the masters of horror that have already left us. As an older fan, that gives me such hope for the future of the genre when the younger ones embrace the past.
Buon compleanno, Lucio! You may be gone, but never forgotten!
