This classic of British horror has been painstakingly restored by VCI (with the cooperation of the British Film Institute) and is now complete and uncut; including more than 2 minutes of additional footage, which had been cut from the U.S. version, titled HORROR HOTEL. This also marks the first time ever this uncut version has been seen on video with its original title. THE CITY OF THE DEAD is an extraordinarily good chiller scripted by George Baxt, which still has the power to frighten fans of the horror genre. A college student, Nan Barlow is researching the history of witchcraft. Taunted by her brother and fianc, who have voiced their concern over her silly notions, Nan arms herself with resolve and drives into the small New England village of Whitewood. She is glad that at least she was able to count on the support of her professor. A bit anxious but consumed with curiosity, she will soon embark herself on the journey of her life! Introducing: Venetia Stevenson.
- 2 minutes of footage deleted from the U.S. version

If you have never seen "City of the Dead" and you like these rare and extremely well made English Movies from 50+ years ago, do not miss this one!
Watch at night with the lights off........hell, I'm 65 years old and grew up on horror movies and this flick spooked me! I had one of my dogs on one side of me and the other on the opposite side just for "Doggy Security"! I consider this to be one damn spooky movie!
If you like spooky B&W flicks, the old English ones cannot be beat!
If you have never seen "The City of the Dead" or "Night of the Demon", I envy you.....but you have to appreciate the fact that both of these movies are for horror fans who like a good scare now and then! These are not Harry Potter movies!
The plot is great fun. As for the DVD transfer it looks great. It is in black-and-white and is a clear picture all the way through. Very enjoyable film.
The real treat of this DVD, though, is a lengthy 2001 interview with Christopher Lee which is a part of the special features. Mr. Lee is SO funny, so charming, and has such intelligent things to say about his career; about actors today; the state of the British film industry and about the British media. He is so personable it's like having him sit in your living room talking with you. I laughed out loud several times at his comments, he is just fabulous! I enjoyed the movie, but I really think this DVD is worth getting just for this interview alone, and particularly if you're a fan of Christopher Lee.
