  1. Stefano Campagna's rating of the film City of the Living Dead

  2. Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film City of the Living Dead

    Horror that setups some memorable set-pieces of blood and destruction of the human body. Lucio Fulci brings again some wonderful atmospheric moments to the movie and Catriona MacColl is an engaging actress with good looks and believable acting. I like the foreboding music. Cruel and horrific in spades.

  3. ms68's rating of the film City of the Living Dead

    Another so called horror that makes one laugh.

  4. William's rating of the film City of the Living Dead

    By far the best of Fulci's 'Hell' trilogy. It's genuinely fun, has an old-fashioned atmosphere, and the gore effects seem to derive more from a schoolboy's delight in gross things than in the malevolence of the later films. (Well, maybe not the drill part...)

  5. FISCHER's rating of the film City of the Living Dead

    Un des films phare du gore transalpin qui, hélas, ne vaut tripette malgré une accumulation (dans la version non censurée) de scènes pseudo-vomitives, tripes et boyaux compris .....www.cinefiches.com

  6. Nick Schwab's rating of the film City of the Living Dead

    The quality of a mid-period Fulci film can often be equated to the creep out factor in its atmosphere/set pieces since it lacks traditional narrative. However, this film is quite coherent in its telling, which is both good and bad: as it's still quite fucking scary for the usual reasons, and features some of his best set pieces, but its lulls and depthlessness is more apparent since it lacks Fulci's nightmare logic.

  7. msmichel's rating of the film City of the Living Dead

    Solid chiller from Lucio Fulci the first in his 'gates of hell' series. The most striking aspect of the film though is its memorable score by Fabio Frizzi that sells the strange events taking place quite well. For Italian horror film fans and gorehounds this is well worth a watch.

  8. Arf's rating of the film City of the Living Dead

    qualche scena è veramente oltre. musiche di frizzi sempre fresche

  9. Tibulle85's rating of the film City of the Living Dead

    Quelques scènes bien choc, mais dans l'ensemble c'est du grand n'importe-quoi! Malgré un bon travail d'ambiance, les acteurs et le scénario sont trop dans les choux pour faire un film vraiment mémorable.

  11. EYELASHMITE's rating of the film City of the Living Dead

    Classic thrills. Perplexing.

  12. Rocco's rating of the film City of the Living Dead

    I find it maddening when people claim that Fulci films "make no sense." No, they're not plotted in the traditional sense but the man is much like Lovecraft in his fascination with the suspension of natural order by beings beyond our imagining. Death is a fascination to Fulci and Hell is a place he wants us to visit every time we see one of his films.

  13. animalcalls's rating of the film City of the Living Dead

    It makes no sense--but what a hallucinatory, beautiful gorefest it is.

  15. - Caltiki -'s rating of the film City of the Living Dead

  16. Pymo's rating of the film City of the Living Dead

    Blood everywhere. Everywhere!!!

  17. soaptree's rating of the film City of the Living Dead

    Crazy gore, teleporting zombies, mediums, and a love doll(?) all adds up to an entertaining movie. The ending, and I mean the last 5 seconds, is bizarre though...

  18. brak's rating of the film City of the Living Dead

    The small blow-up doll scene confused my brain.

  19. Patrick Dietz's rating of the film City of the Living Dead

    teleporting zombies and characters that act like they're sedated

  20. Nelson Núñez's rating of the film City of the Living Dead

    De las pocas películas que he visto de Lucio Fulci, es la que menos me ha gustado por lo reiterativo de las situaciones y la "solución" del conflicto. Sin embargo, contiene secuencias asquerosas y potentes que la hacen merecedora de un vistazo: Mary resucitando en el ataúd, la cabeza taladrada de Bob, la chica que llora sangre y vomita sus órganos y la tormenta de lombrices.

  21. Federico Di Folco's rating of the film City of the Living Dead

    Un grande film horror,come nella migliore tradizione di Fulci. Sconnesso a livello narrativo in stile Lovecraft,con una fotografia sempre nebbiosa che mette angoscia e con scene che colpiscono alla stra-grande:la ragazza che vomita gli organi interni,gli occhi sanguinanti,le picconate alla tomba,i cervelli strappati e la trapanata del ragazzo.Giustamente omaggiato dal grande Quentin nel suo favoloso Kill Bill.3*

  22. ElTigreNegro's rating of the film City of the Living Dead

    A dress rehersal for The Beyond, similar ideas, but the later did it even better. Still, plenty of gory fun for the whole family, teleporting zombies!

  23. Konrad Szlendak's rating of the film City of the Living Dead

    Yeah, a little bit falling behind the other parts of the trilogy, but overall pretty good movie by master of surrealistic gore. Worthy giving it a go!

  24. Ethan Vestby's rating of the film City of the Living Dead

    A case in which the typical flaws of a horror film (bad acting, nonsensical and unfocused plot, repetitive gore) work in service of its actual purpose. This is a pure nightmare put on film; that of a man fascinated with what death means to the human body; particularly the physical destruction. Can't wait to check out more Fulci.
