Don't Torture a Duckling, ( Italian: Non si sevizia un paperino) is a Giallo film directed by Lucio Fulci in 1972.

The film is important to Fulci's filmography because it is one of the first in which he began using violent gore effects. Something which he would continue to do in his later films such as Zombie and City of the Living Dead.

The soundtrack was composed by Riz Ortolani and features vocals by Ornella Vanoni.


A child killer is preying on young boys in a small Italian village and it's up to a reporter (Tomas Milian) and a local girl (Barbara Bouchet) to stop them before they kill again. A number of locals are assumed to be the killer, including Maciara (Florinda Bolkan) a local "witch" and Francesco (Georges Wilson) a priest.
