Umberto Lenzi (CANNIBAL FEROX) directed this rather bizarre, yet popular zombie movie. It stars Hugo Stiglitz as Dean Miller, a television reporter who is covering a nuclear accident in a major city. When a mysterious plane makes an emergency landing near the accident site, Miller goes to cover the story and watches as a horde of flesh eatining zombies burst out of the plane. These irradiated zombies behave nothing like their risen from the grave counterparts. In fact, they run to chase their prey and even use weapons when given the chance. Frightened by these super zombies, Miller grabs his wife and heads out of town. Unfortunately, the zombies follow him, leading to a showdown in an abandoned amusement park.
Description by Ryko Distribution:
When a radioactive spill causes mass contamination, thousands of infected citizens are transformed into bloodthirsty undead fiends. But these are not your standard stumbling gut-munchers; this is an all-out attack by fast-moving, flesh-ripping, ass-kicking maniacs that can only be stopped by a bullet to the brain. Get ready for an all-you-can-eat buffet of gunfire, gore and gratuitous aerobics where zombies run, chaos reigns and heads explode. This is NIGHTMARE CITY!
