Doc Terror, Frank Browning, and Hacktivision have done it again. Check out the trailer for Lucio Fulci’s Gateway to Hell series - a new set of faux 8-bit video games based on Fulci’s City of the Living Dead, TheHouse By The Cemetery, and The Beyond. This is so fucking cool.
Check out Doc Terror’s blog for more details, or just to keep up on their amazing Italian Horror Week.
Death Waltz Recording and Beat Records will be releasing Fabio Frizzi‘s iconic soundtrack to the 1980 Lucio Fulci zombie horror City Of The Living Dead. We’re thrilled to bring you this news AND to reveal the gorgeous artwork, which was done by Graham Humphreys. The CD will be available to purchase from Beat Records direct and vinyl from Death Waltz in April.
The remaster has been personally overseen by Fabio Frizzi in Rome and both the CD & Vinyl come with an exclusive bonus cue in the form of a ten minute City Of The Living Suite recorded live on Halloween 2013 in London’s historic Union Chapel church. This track is a teaser of a live album (!!!) to follow on both Beat and Death Waltz.
The CD keeps the classic poster art while the vinyl has exclusive brand new commissioned artwork from Graham Humphreys and includes brand new liner notes from composer Fabio Frizzi, artist Graham Humphreys, and noted Italian horror expert Stephen Thrower.
Headaches be damned, Rachel and I are going to watch this lovely film on the big screen at midnight tonight. Presented in glorious 35MM. So excited - believe it or not, I’ve never seen Zombie in a theatre. Can not wait.
To horror/zombie fans, Lucio Fulci’s 1979 gut-muncher needs no introduction. An unofficial Italian sequel to George Romero’s Dawn Of The Dead, Fulci’s jungle island freakout is truly its own beast, and is a horror tale that owes more to the classic voodoo iteration of the zombie rather than Romero’s modern-age reboot. But forget all that — as there’s a real reason this is regarded as a classic: the wonderful, wonderful gore and make-up effects that Fulci slathers onto the screen with reckless, joyful abandon. All of his stylistic trademarks are present: the creeping dread, the dream-logic hysteria, the eye trauma — all wrapped into one magnificent zombified package, and set to the relentless beat of a voodoo drum score (courtesy of Italian horror movie music stalwart Fabio Frizzi.) We didn’t have space to squeeze Zombie into this past October’s “Video Nasties” retrospective, so don’t miss your chance to see this staple of the genre in glorious 35mm. We are going to eat you! NOTE: the actual start time of this show will be closer to 12:15AM. Dir. Lucio Fulci, 1979, 35mm, 91 min.
