Umberto Lenzi’s NIGHTMARE CITY is fucking crazy, and it absolutely delights me to say that it’s making its way to Blu-ray from Raro Video this October! Raro is a great label that’s been around for a couple of years; specializing in cinematic greats & not-so-greats of Italian genre fare, but every release is worth your attention. Hilariously titled CITY OF THE WALKING DEAD when it hit US shores as an edited cut, Raro is presenting it completely uncut and fully remastered in HD from the 35mm negative! Any label that pours thousands of dollars into a film of nasty sleaze-master Lenzi is a serious friend of mine. Check out the 1080p trailer below to get a taste of the newly struck transfer, and relish in the gore-riffic insanity of NIGHTMARE CITY!
Cool little tidbit for the uninitiated: Do you remember Hugo Stiglitz, one of the basterds who received his own title credit introduction in Quentin Tarantino’s INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS? That fine name comes courtesy of NIGHTMARE CITY actor Hugo Stiglitz! Knowing is half the battle!
NIGHTMARE CITY invades, rips, and maims Blu-ray & DVD October 2013!
TV news reporter Dean Miller waits at the airport for the arrival of a scientist that he is about to interview. There, an unmarked military plane makes an emergency landing. The plane doors open and dozens of zombies burst out stabbing and shooting military waiting outside. Miller tries to let the people know of this event, but General Murchison of Civil Defense will not allow it. Then, Miller tries to find his wife and escape from the blood-thirsty zombies that are all over the city.
