Description

A priest commits suicide in a cemetery; a young New York girl goes into a trance; and somehow these two seemingly unrelated events cause the dead to rise up and terrorise the living in a small Massachusetts town. Directed by prolific gore-meister Lucio Fulci, this cult shocker is set in horror writer H.P. Lovecraft's home town of Dunwich, but was actually shot in Fulci's native Italy. This is the uncut version.

Synopsis
After a priest commits suicide, a ghastly horror is unleashed on the quaint New England town of Dunwich. The rotting denizens of the local cemetery rise and walk the Earth. A journalist teams up with a psychic to send the dead back into the earth. If their race against time is lost, within three days all hell will break loose--literally! Highly recommended, although not for the squeamish.
Notes
US theatrical release 1983 (Unrated).

Filmed on location in Savannah Georgia.

Begins a three film (CITY OF THE LIVING DEAD, THE BEYOND and HOUSE BY THE CEMETERY) collaboration between director Lucio Fulci and actress Katherine MacColl.

In the credits for CITY OF THE LIVING DEAD, Katherine MaCaoll is listed by her birth name, Catriona. After her agent came to realize that Italian words ending in o-n-a typically mean "large," the actress decided on the name change for her next two films with director Lucio Fulci.

On England's "video nasties" list and released there without the power-drill sequence and the woman vomiting her innards.

Actress Katherine MacColl nearly refused to perform in two scenes; one in which she is to be buried alive then rescued via a near-miss pick-axe chopping through the coffin, and the second being the maggot windstorm scene, which was a combination of rice and actual worms. The actress confessed to being in "real" tears during the later scene.

Features director Michele Soavi (THE CHURCH, CEMETERY MAN) in a bit part as as "Tommy".

CITY OF THE LIVING DEAD contains an abundance of inadvertently comical camera zoom-ins to the actor's eyes, which became standard in the following Lucio Fulci's films.

Fulci credits the film's ending to editor Vincenzo Tomassi, whom created the scene after the original footage was accidentally destroyed.
