NOW THEY ARE EVERYWHERE! THERE IS NO ESCAPE!
Long before zombies took up jogging in 28 Days Later and Zack Snyder s Dawn of the Dead remake, they were brandishing axes and other sharp implements in Umberto Lenzi s utterly insane radiation-sickness opus Nightmare City.
In true Zombie Flesh Eaters form, our story begins with the arrival of an ominous, seemingly unmanned craft in this instance, a military plane making an unscheduled landing at a European airport. Upon forcing the aircraft doors open, the waiting soldiers get a nasty shock when out bursts a horde of flesh-hungry, pizza-faced radioactive ghouls. The walking dead are here, and they re hungry!
Counting amongst its fans the likes of Quentin Tarantino and Eli Roth, Nightmare City (aka City of the Walking Dead) is a bonkers slice of Italian zombie carnage from the man who shocked the world with the notorious Cannibal Ferox.

An incredibly fast moving but overly silly Umberto Lenzi horror. The opening sequence is a fairly accurate account of how the film is going to develop, the action takes centre stage and this is definitely the strongest aspect of the picture. Lenzi never really lets the pace slip, with each attack scene coming thick and fast as to never really get boring. Stelvio Cipriani's deep and fairly brooding score tries and in some scenes adds a fair bit of tension that lacks in the narrative. There is however more than one problem, the make up effects on the zombies/monsters or whatever, is awful and is really fake looking, is just appears they dipped there face into a make up bag and went with it, it never does convince although some of the gore sequences and effects are better. The plot is another problem, the final twist is ridiculous, there is no narrative resolution, plot points come to nothing and it leaves the film with a completely vacant ending. Some of the dialogue is so bad its genius - lets go with emergency plan h and leave plan b- that takes a special writer, the dubbing is also quite poor but the acting is fine, somehow even with all the negatives this is such a watchable film, everything is just so silly or awful it makes it even more endearing, the pace is lightning fast, yes some of the make up's awful but at least they made an effort (well maybe) and there's plenty of blood and guts to keep the horror fan satisfied.
If you don't take it too seriously there's plenty to enjoy, it's a massive surprise how much fun it is, but if your looking for another Romero better to skip this one. Lenzi's second film on the Section 3 nasty list, along with Eaten Alive and his couple on the full Video Nasties list so the DPP were clearly gunning for him.
Italian director Umberto Lenzi followed this up with the controversial Cannibal Ferox which is way more gory than Nightmare City but effective nevertheless.
