A Lucio Fulci movie is something I enjoy watching quite a bit. Understanding, not so much. This marks my fifth viewing of City of the Living Dead, and it still makes no sense whatsoever. I can’t explain why most things in the movie happen, only that they do, and look really cool as they occur.
The basic plot is that a priest kills himself, opening a gate to hell, and it has to be closed before All Saints’ Day or the dead will never rest peacefully again. Everything that happens around that is due to the open gate, and you just have to accept it.
