Product Description

Product Description

The Seven Gates of Hell have been torn open, and in three days the dead shall rise and walk the earth. As a reporter (Christopher George) and a psychic (Catriona MacColl) race to close the portals of the damned, they encounter a seething nightmare of unspeakable evil. The city is alive--with the horrors of the living dead! Directed and co-written by the legendary Lucio Fulci (Zombie, The Beyond, The New York Ripper), "City of the Living Dead" features some of the maestro's most shocking and controversial sequences of all time. This is the definitive version of Fulci's hallucinogenic masterpiece of horror: uncut, uncensored and presented in all its brain-ripping, gut-spewing, head-drilling glory! A.k.a. "The Gates of Hell."

this movie is disgusting, disturbing, scary, cheesy at times, and incredibly gory... it is everything that a Fulci fan could ask for in a movie.
**to the people whining about fulci's films,
if you are looking for some clean cut hollywood thriller, this movie is NOT for you. chances are you wouldn't appreciate it's campy charms... :0)

Storyline? Forget it! Plausible characters and decent acting? Maybe after a couple of glasses of wine you will see that. And yet, this movie still easily competes against Jeepers Creepers and 28 Days Later, to name but a couple of the newer horror movies. If you are one of those who has to fill some kind of superiority void within by spotting every flaw in a movie and then smugly pointing it out to those around you doomed to have to listen (or read your review)---put the muppets in, because you will only have an aneurism trying to keep up with the so-called flaws. For the rest of us who have that magnificent gift of suspending our beliefs for an hour and a half, we will be able to appreciate the feeling of having been put through hell. Fulci's City of the Living Dead does just that. If the movie can be said to have any kind of metaphor, it is that Fulci's zombies are merely extensions of the different kinds of human corruption. How appropriate then that the zombie madness begins with the suicide of a priest, the supposed guardian of other people's faith. Many of the people who get killed off in the movie are flawed in a significant way, from being malicious, to paranoid, to narcistic and prideful. Do they deserve it? Who knows. One of the most disturbing scenes in the film is of a guy getting his head drilled in---the twist is that it isn't the zombies who drill his head in. The zombie gore and the musical soundtrack that often propells things are extraordinary. The music especially conveys a trapped, claustrophic feeling. The only BIG problem I had was with the ending; I've seen this movie three times, and I still have no clue how the movie ends. Still, considering how most Italian horror movies unravel themselves and present their respective denouments, this is getting off rather cheaply!

With fulci, it is really hit and miss. Zombi and New York Ripper were good. This one, however, smells of arse. For one thing, why was i laughing every time the dead preacher made an appearance? He was incredibly corny and thats saying something in a genre grown in a cornfield.
So what we have is an end of the world scenerio. Somewhere a preacher has killed himself. Don't ask why for we don't know and we don't find out. Somewhere else, a woman has a vision and sees the death. Back to the first somewhere...if someone doesn't put the restless spirit of the dead priest to bed, then the dead shall come back to life. Why! WHY! WHY! Was the preacher evil in life? Or something like that. And these zombies (Only they are not really zombies but rotting ghosts..no wait! They are zombies again. Now they are ghosts! Ok, just what have we got here...Zombies or Ghosts? There is a difference...!) [are bad]. There not the blue makeup guys from dawn of the dead (god bless that film though i dare blaspheme savini's zombies!)but they aren't the rotting messes we see in return of the living dead either. Anyhow, The whole mess somehow winds up under the ground in a tomb. The ending is no suprise. ...poor.
So why 2 stars then if the movie reeked so bad? Well there were scant scenes of bodily massacration but when they appeared, they were well done. Blood pouring from eyes, intestines being vomited out of the mouth, the usual zombie feasting. Good stuff when it happens. The transfer was rather ordinary. Compared to the old VHS version I saw this on the first time, it was an improvement.At least i could understand the dialog this time. So one star for the effects and one for the fact that somehow, i volunteered to see this a second time.

I originally saw City Of The Living Dead under the Title of The Gates of Hell on a poorly made VHS. Even though the quality was bad, the movie intreged me. The story was very interesting and the film has soom very genuine scary moments. But the film just suffers from very poor editing and plot holes. I don't know if it was just the budget, but the editing is very choppy and the whole film just feels sloppily put together (especially the ending!). The film also has huge plot holes. In one scene, a women is killed in the city of Dunwich in Europe. A couple of scenes later it shows police investigating the murder, but one of the policeman has an american flag on the sleeve of his shirt. But the murder is in Dunwich! Did New York policemen travel to dunwich to investigate the murder? Little things like that insult my intellegance. Lucio Fulci does however give the film a awsome frightening atmosphere with the scenes of Dunwich. The wind is always blowing and there is always a feeling of dread. The atmosphere is so thick, you could cut it with a knife! This is what I like about Fulci's films. He can brillantly give a felling of dread, gloom and doom. What I don't like about his movies is the OVER abundance of gore. There is only so many "zombies grabbing a head and squashing brains out" you can take before it gets real old, real fast. The two notorious scenes are the are the gut puking and head drill scenes. I can take the gut puking. Its a good shot to shock the audience, but the head drill scene is a little much. The purpose of this scene is nothing, just to show a head getting drilled. What would have been a supendous horror film gets muddled by poor editing and totally unnessessary scenes to show off gore. Look at Fulci's THE BEYOND for example.Read more ›
