|City of The Living Dead;1980 |
Horror is among my favorite genre of films to watch, however, it seems as though lately, horror has lost it's magic and new horror films consist of the same old same old unoriginal storyline. I have lately retorted to older horror movies which bring back what horror is all about. Who cares if there's no realistic computer graphics?
Lucio Fulci, director of City of The Living Dead, earned the title "godfather of gore" for his incredibly gory films in the 70's and 80's including A Cat In The Brain, The Beyond, and Zombie. City of The Living Dead is about the opening of the gates of hell resulting from the suicide of a priest. And what is a classic horror movie without oozing zombies? As expected, this film is very gory and in my opinion has great effects considering that is was filmed in the 80's.
Many people might dislike older films due to their lack of believability, but some films are great just because of that. City of the Living Dead is a must see for any horror fan.
I rate this film 7/10
