City of the Living Dead
Lucio Fulci’s sensationally gory zombie horror finds undead hordes overtaking a sleepy New England town, with only a reporter and a local psychic to stop them.
Horror 1980 93 mins
Director: Lucio Fulci
In Lucio Fulci’s sensationally gory zombie horror, the gates of hell have been opened in a sleepy New England town and only a reporter and a local psychic can stop the zombie hordes from overtaking the world.
Punctuated by a series of inventively gruesome setpieces and Fulci’s characteristically surreal approach to narrative convention, City of the Living Dead was the first in a trio of films from the director about zombies emerging from netherworlds, unofficially known as the Gates of Hell trilogy. Originally castigated and cut to shreds by British censors upon its 1980 release, City of the Living Dead can now be enjoyed in all its intended blood-splattered glory.
