Product Description:

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.

Production 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.
