Default City of the Living Dead (1980)


After a priest commits suicide, a ghastly horror is unleashed on the quaint New England town of Dunwich. The rotting denizens of the local cemetery rise and walk the Earth. A journalist teams up with a psychic to send the dead back into the earth. If their race against time is lost, within three days all hell will break loose--literally! Highly recommended, although not for the squeamish.

I have never heard of this film and it's coming out on DVD on the 27th. Is there a reason I have never heard of this? Is it really that bad?

As with most Fulci, don't expect a completely coherent plot, or any real character development... just gore. Lots and lots of really great gore.

Been meaning to check it out... The only Fulci movies I've seen are Zombi 2 and Zombi 3 (the latter may not even count, lol)

The original Anchor Bay release is available on the net pretty cheap. I'm sure Blue Underground's release is identical to that one, but it's cool that it's being put back in print again.

It's pretty well known. Must've slipped under your radar. Many in the US first encountered it by another name: The Gates of Hell. People that see it tend to remember it ... or at least remember the head drilling and intestine vomiting scenes. I like "The Beyond" and "Zombie 2" more, but any horror/zombie fan should check this out at least once.

Yep, like I said, Anchor Bay released it on DVD, but I believe that edition's out of print now.

Blue Underground is just re-releasing it.
