1.0 out of 5 stars Possibly the most ridiculous thing I have ever seen......, 5 Feb 2008
This review is from: City Of The Living Dead [DVD] [1981] (DVD)
With music stolen unashamedly from George Romero's 'Dawn of the dead', and actors stolen from 'Crossroads', this was 90 minutes or so of my life I will never get back. The acting is so wooden it beggars belief; no-one seems to be particularly afraid or interested, as if dead people often walk around in their town (perhaps they do) There are so many pointless things done, and ridiculous things said in this film that it would be hard to quote them all; but something along the lines of
'In 48 hours we'll all be dead if we don't do something!'
'Yeah but I'm hungry, let's get something to eat first!'
Or the fact that millions of maggots blew in inexplicably through an open window, but no-one thought to go and SHUT IT!
The 'heroes' were so useless that they couldn't find the priest's tombstone in a cemetary occupied by only about ten graves, so that wasted more time (they had to find his grave before Saints day, for some reason) So of course they ended up with only one minute left to do whatever it was they were going to do before midnight (I'm losing will to live by now). And then, just as I was contemplating what kind of sandwich I was going to have for lunch, they saved the day..........or did they? Who knows, and who cares.

Heh heh! Great review, you made my day, thank you - one of the funniest I've read in a long while.

Umm, I think Hell of the Living Dead is the one you're talking about...certainly, that's the Italian zombie movie that stole Dawn of the Dead/Zombi's score...

Suspension of disbelief...you've either suspended it or you ain't.

There is one piece of music in this film that is very like the Goblin track 'Dawn of the Dead' - the resemblance is mainly in the beat and the minor chords used. But it's not a lift. I have the original soundtrack Cd of 'City of the Living Dead' and have been listening to the Gobline soundtrack of 'Dawn' sinc ethe LP first came out and they are different recordings/pieces of music.
