THE GATES OF HELL (aka CITY OF THE LIVING DEAD)
Paura nella città dei morti viventi
1980, Grindhouse Releasing, 93 min, Dir: Lucio Fulci

If you like great photography, supernatural themes, painful insertions of carpentry tools, portals to Hell, vomiting-up of intestines and maggot-dripping zombies, this is the film for you. A priest commits suicide by hanging himself in the church cemetery of Dunwich, and the horrific act opens the gates of Hell. As zombies pour forth. a reporter, a psychic, a psychiatrist and his patient must close the gates before All Saints Day or the dead will destroy the world (in a creatively gory way, of course). Gruesome savant Fulci’s follow-up to ZOMBIE features fantastic makeup by Gino de Rossi and cinematography by Sergio Salvate.
