Podcast: City of the Living Dead (1980)

Direct download.

A halloween spooktacular so good you’ll puke your guts out! It’s Lucio Fulci’s 1980 movie City of the Living Dead!

A New England priest (Fabrizio Jovine) hangs himself in order to open a portal to hell and unleash an army of the undead. Mary (Catriona MacColl) discovers his plot during a New York seance and travels with a reporter (Christopher George) to stop the zombie horde on All Saint’s Day through… means.

Meanwhile, the denizens of Dunwich, Massachusetts notice strange happenings in the town, including, but not limited to, earthquakes, make out hauntings, 30% of the population dying of fright (according to the coroner), skull smashings, organ pukings, and a perverted gas station attendant with a blow up doll.

Some Notes:

  • Available on Amazon Prime.
  • Nick erroneously states that Fulci probably put "100 pounds of maggots into a snowblower" to do the maggot storm scene. It was actually 20 pounds. He regrets the error.
  • Reportedly, the original ending shot was destroyed, which is why the ending on the film sucks beans.
