I love Zombie films and if you love Gore! Gore!! and more Gore!!! then this film is for you, I mean when the girl was spitting out her inners was disgusting, and even though the film was a bit slow to get going it still gets you, for me i don't mind a slow pace.

Now i have to say the Blu-ray transfer was very nice, it gets a 4/5 from me. The soundtrack which is in 7.1 Dolby sounds crystal clear and the sound effects are creepy.

You also get a nice little Booklet which is a great read, but what i like is the reversible artwork, featuring original "The Gates of Hell" which for me look's the best.

As I have a multi region disc player I bought this version. First up, I haven't seen it for years so I don't know if anything has been edited out. The film clock's in at 93 mins so I presume it's the uncut version. Secondly it states that it's region one. It's not it play's on my blu ray player which is not multi region. After a quick look the picture has not been remastered so it's quite grainy. But it's uncut and cost me less than two quid. Cheaper than the blu ray. This copy is the one with the blue/green cover with the zombie with one eye on it. And should play on UK DVD player's.

I have a soft spot (probably between my ears) for this splatter movie from 1980 , it will not win any awards for acting; but if you watch a horror film ; are you looking for Oscar worthy acting ? And all logic goes out of the window with this one, again, if horror films were logical, most people wouldn't end up as zombie food ! What the film would win awards for (and I think it did ) would be for its gory effects ; in particular a very graphic and realistic head drilling of the village idiot and the hard to watch vomiting up of guts by a girl in a car ,
The plot tells of a priest who hangs himself, and by doing so; opens the gates of hell ; to which he unleashes some manky looking zombies, a psychic and reporter only have 48 hours to destroy the priest and close the gates of hell
the ending has caused horror fans to debate what happened for years ; it's open to interpretation, but I don't think it's a happy one.
It's unfair of people to criticise and compare this to Romero movies , it's never professed to be like a Romero film , it's structure; style and approach are very different from his style, which are usually social commentary
Lovely clear print from Arrow ; some grain and some softness in some scenes ; but minor quibbles for its bargain price

Written and directed by the Italian horror master Lucio Fulci comes "City Of The Living Dead." A horror film that was released in 1981 and previously banned, the film was quickly considered to be a video nasty and it's status is still refereed to such among horror fans to this day.

The film follows a young woman who has a vision foretelling the gates of hell opening under the New England town of Dunwich. She voices her concerns to a journalist and the pair set out together for the town, where a lot of strange things have been happening. They soon discover an army of zombies that have returned with a quest for revenge after being burned at the stake hundreds of years ago.

As usual with most of Lucio Fulci's horror films, the City Of The Living Dead offers a vast volume of stomach turning gore and horror. While a lot of his films were considered at the time to be simple exploitation and generally slatted by film critics, a great number of his films including this one are considered to be among his best by hardcore horror fans, and I personally would agree.

For me horror films such as this, always seem to come across as more realistic and plausible when compared to modern films. Perhaps it's the lack of computer effects, the low budget, or the fact that the actors (while not always the greatest) always seemed to be very real. Whatever the reason I always have prefer pre-1990's horror films.

City Of The Living Dead has a great atmosphere present throughout the film, which when combined with the appropriate and effective sound track generates a feel that's perfect for a horror. The effects and make-up used in the film are great and would still hold up today even after all this time.

After a priest hangs himself in a cemetery, the gates of Hell are opened. Zombies appear and start killing off people in the remote town of Dunwich. Psychic Mary dies of what appears to be fright and is buried - only to revive, buried alive, in her own coffin. Investigating reporter Peter Bell, who is intrigued by the case, is present at the grave-site and rescues her and they team up and head to Dunwich.

This was Lucio Fulci's first film in what was later know as the Gates of Hell trilogy, the Beyond and House by the Cemetery followed. As with any Fulci Zombie movie these Zombies are completely different to the ones in his earlier film Zombie Flesh Eaters and the ones from George A Romero. These have super human strength and the power of Teleportation.

As with most of Fulci films it is well directed and he is able to create a very ghostly atmosphere with his use of fog and the opening scene where the priest hangs himself is a very surreal and scary image. The gore as expected is very explicit and not for the faint hearted, we have a young girl puking up her intestines while she bleeds from her eyes, a man has his head cut open with an electric drill and various people have their brains squeezed out by the Zombies.

I did however find the film very unbelievable but I guess that was never Fulci or Co-writer Dardano Sacchetti's intention.

Overall a decent film but fans of Fulci will have a field day with this blood filled 88 minute classic.
