You can feel the 'poetic of gore' in the scene with the gilr in the car crying blood, spitting and throwing her insides. Good location Savannah as is explained in the extras

"City of the Living Dead" is far from a perfect film but, even expecting that, it falls quite a bit short of good and ambles somewhat aimlessly in the fair category for me. Most of that good will falls on the soft spot I have for Italian horror and Fulci's better offerings to the genre. Don't behead me just yet Fulci loyalists.

In the small New England town of Dunwich, a priest commits suicide by hanging himself in the church cemetery which somehow opens the gates of hell allowing the dead to rise. Peter, a New York City reporter, teams up with a young psychic, named Mary, to travel to the town where they team up with another couple, psychiatrist Jerry and patient Sandra, to find a way to close the gates before All Saints Day or the dead all over the world will rise up and kill the living.

" Date: 6/17/2020 Viewed: Blu-Ray Re-Watch Note: Today is Lucio Fulci's birthday and I decided to celebrate his birthday by watching the new Blu-Ray of City of the Living Dead aka Gates of Hell released by Scorpion Releasing. The 4K restoration of this movie is absolutely breathtaking because everything looks so crisp and clear. I noticed things that I would never notice in the movie until now. City of the Living Dead is still an awesome movie even 40 years later. It's the weakest movie in the "

" Date: 6/18/2019 Viewed: Blu-Ray Re-Watch Note: After re-watching Zombie, I decided to watch a Lucio Fulci movie this week from Monday-Sunday in honor of his birthday. The weakest movie in the Gates of Hell trilogy, but still a solid movie nevertheless. I personally love the dark, spooky and gothic atmosphere in the movie. The movie has you on the edge of your seat from start to finish. I also love the set designs in the movie because they look fantastic. My biggest issue with the movie is th"

“"City of the Living Dead" is far from a perfect film but, even expecting that, it falls quite a bit short of good and ambles somewhat aimlessly in the fair category for me. Most of that good will falls on the soft spot I have for Italian horror and Fulci's better offerings to the genre. Don't behead me just yet Fulci loyalists. I proudly wear my Fulci Lives gear and partake of the man's work quite often but I'd be remiss if I ignored the shortcomings of his art which are, if we're being honest, many.

That being said, I have something of an unbridled appreciation for this movie despite my middling rating and it mostly falls on the fact that "City" is something of an ambitious project even as it fails to bring most of that to fruition. I, like many, believe that Fulci's magnum opu” read more
