Coming Soon - COTLD Blu-ray

I was ecstatic to wake up and find out that Lucio Fulci's zombie movie CITY OF THE LIVING DEAD (aka THE GATES OF HELL) is finally making it's way to blu-ray in a nice special edition on May 25, 2010. For those of you that haven't made the switch over to blu-ray yet, it is available as a special edition DVD too. This thing looks like it will be loaded with some nice special features that were not present on the first DVD release. Although I love the original "Gates" cover more, this one is definitely cool.

The Seven Gates Of Hell have been torn open, and in three days the dead shall rise and walk the earth. As a reporter (Christopher George of PIECES) and a psychic (Catriona MacColl of THE BEYOND) race to close the portals of the damned, they encounter a seething nightmare of unspeakable evil. The city is alive - with the horrors of the living dead!

Directed and co-written by the legendary Lucio Fulci (ZOMBIE, THE BEYOND), CITY OF THE LIVIND DEAD features some of the maestro's most shocking and controversial sequences of all time. Blue Underground proudly presents the definitive version of Fulci's hallucinogenic masterpiece of horror: freshly transferred in brain-ripping High Definition from its original uncensored negative and loaded with exclusive new Extras!
