City of the Living Dead (1980)
Movie Review by The Undertaker
10.30.01

City of the Living Dead (1980) Most commonly known and seen over here under the equally cool title The Gates of Hell. This is my favorite Fulci film. Yeah, yeah, all you sissy boys can cry about The Beyond, but this is MY favorite, and his 2nd best flick. I rented this movie many times before finally having the equipment to copy it way back when. Always loved that killer cover art on the box. When I finally did see the correctly titled, uncut version, I knew this was my fav. I don't like to categorize this one as just a zombie movie, so I don't compare it to Zombi 2 really. This had way too much of a supernatural vibe going for it to me. City has it all: gore, atmosphere, incredible make-up with unique death scenes, cool music, well hung priests, perverts, living dead, intestinal tract vomiting, & so much more. I'll stop before I use the word 'Fu' and start sounding like Joe Bob Briggs. The darkly lit camera work is awesome. The maggot scene is just plain yucky! I love the sound FX for the zombies in City also. What a cool roaring, wheezing noise. Still, I always wanted the ending to be a little more brutal to match the rest of the films' intensity. Can't have it all. All things in movie terms considered, this is Fulci's runner-up, but not by much damn it! For my own personal viewing pleasure though, this gets a blue ribbon every time. Good to see it getting the DVD treatment and all that good shit. But don't throw out those old Gates of Hell vids friends, you have to have that cover! Want to scare a date? Throw this sucker in and find out how many ways you can be called a sick-o after that barf scene. What else can I say? Just go watch it again and enjoy that special Fulci magic that haunts this movie.
