5.0 out of 5 stars LUCIO = MAESTRO October 27, 2004
Format:DVD
the negative reviews are missing the point as usual because this is one of Fulci's Golden Greats. of course there's some plot holes and cheesy moments but they are few and far between, and the majority of movie is all guts and gory. all good Fulci movies establish hellish creeping dread that is punctuated by beautiful women, a few laugh out loud moments (some intentional, some not) and many gorious glorious death setpieces natch

although it's not a patch on The Beyond, I love this movie from start to finish, conceding that yes the last 15 minutes of this film is somewhat sketchily presented. howver the end scenes are in keeping with the logic of the narrative to that point, and really, if you've paid attention to a relatively (for Fulci) unconvoluted plot then the last 15 seconds shouldn't leave you "scratching your head". City of the Living Dead is masterful with several classic scenes, and there's few horror directors that have such a deft and entertaining touch when it comes to conveying a sense of encroaching godless doom

4.0 out of 5 stars Fulci in HD October 21, 2010
By feratu
Format:Blu-ray
Firstly, this review is more for hardcore horror fans, and there are a few minor spoilers. Other more casual movie-goers trying to figure out if you would like this movie... you should rent some Fulci so you can have a better idea what you're getting into before buying this.

Wow. Just wow. This is a really (infamously) gory movie, one I really like, and I've had it on DVD for a while... But that didn't prepare me for the HD gore. I have never gotten sick from a horror movie, but the City of the Living Dead blu-ray had me nearly gagging. The HD reveals a lot compared to the DVD version.

The famous maggot scene has to be seen on blu-ray to be believed. Their sheer number is absolutely amazing, and on Blu-ray you can see that all of them everywhere, covering the floor, in the air, and on the actors are very real. Tens of thousands of them. Again, WOW. The intestine vomiting is probably the most disgusting thing I have ever seen in my life, and is SO much worse in HD. In the making of, it's revealed the actress was actually had a mouthful of freshly slaughtered lamb meat (so the innards wouldn't stink). Blech.

This is one of my favorite Fulci movies, and Hi-Def brings Lucio's solid direction to life. I was able to pick up on many details I had missed watching it on a smaller standard TV, and the plot was more involving.

Finally, the bad. There are a few times during the film (most notably in the earliest scenes) where the HD reveals flaws in the film. At moments it looks too light to me, a bit washed out and noisy. But for the most part the movie, and most importantly the effects, look incredibly shocking and great.

3.0 out of 5 stars Buckets of blood, heaps of guts, that crazy Lucio! February 9, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Fulci's follow-up to his enjoyable bloodbath Zombie(1979) is euro-trash sleaze on the outside but multiple viewings have revealed a surreal, scary horror film with a few good ideas, and dripping with gothic atmosphere. A priest hangs himself in Dunwitch, Mass and starts off a deadly chain of events leading up to the end of the world. Only gruff reporter Christopher George, and Medium-returned-from-the-dead Catherine McColl can stop the carnage. Some generaly haunting scenes such as when the priest's ghost appears just before someone gets kacked, and a little boy pursued by the spirit of his dead sister through the deserted streets. Once again, if you can't handle the gore, better stay clear. This features brain squashing, eyeball popping, intestine-barfing, head drilling, and a giant crucifix thrust into a guy's knads. Ouch.

4.0 out of 5 stars Made from a bad negative December 13, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
This version of Lucio Fulci's The Gates of Hell deserves better. The video itself is of high quality, but the copy is made from a very poor negative of the film. The film is scratchy and muddy making the film a chour to watch. Recently Anchor Bay has released a beautiful remastering of the film under it's alternate title City of the Living Dead. That version costs less and a MUCH better buy. Seek out that title before purchasing this version. Believe me, you will be much more pleased.

5.0 out of 5 stars GORE GALORE!! FULCI HITS IT HARD!! May 14, 2003
Format:VHS Tape
Forget what a bunch of these other reviewers say when they are knocking this "classic" work by the late great director, Lucio Fulci. Maybe they aren't fans of the Maestro's work, or for Euro-Horror, or more specifically, Italian Horror, in general. Maybe it's just me, but I loved this film when I first saw it at the theatre with my father, back in the early 80's. Right to the beautiful, restored, uncut edition, released by Anchor Bay. True the vhs transfer is somewhat murky, but the AC dvd is the bomb.
I've been a horror film fanatic since I was 12, and have expanded my horizons into the Euro-Cult gen, now that I am 35.
One reviewer mentioned an Italian Superstar in this movie as Robert Kerman. This is not him, in this picture. It is none other than the great Giovanni Lombardo Radice, (AKA John Morghen) who gets a labotomy, courtesy of a nice machine drill.
The movie does not make much sense, then again, how may Italian, Euro-Cult movies do? But that's the fun of this whole movie.
The acting is lame, the dubbing is atrocious, even the late Christopher George's voice is dubbed, with his own voice, of course. But the movie is a non-stop blood bath, for the most part.
You've probably read the other reviews, how a priest hangs himself, and is witnessed, while in a seance, from a group of modern day witches. By doing this he opens up the "Gates of Hell", which must be closed by midnight on "All Hallows Eve", (aka Halloween), or the dead will walk the earth, and rule over the living.
Then in walks the journalist Christopher George, accompanied by the thought dead, beautiful Catriona Macoll, who had witness the hanging of the priest during the seance, and had a heart-failure of sorts, before being discovered alive by George.
