Some of you may remember my video review of Nightmare City, which may not have been the most positive review the film has ever received, but I did go on to mention that it is pretty unique and I do enjoy it for all of its cheese and gore. Until recently, you could only find a copy of the film through Blue Underground, which I believe is out of print. But now, Raro Video will be releasing this monster of a movie out in time for the holidays, being distributed by the fine folks at Kino Lorber.
This isn’t a straight VHS or DVD port either. Raro is presenting this gory flick in a new HD transfer from the original 35mm negative and packing it full of gutty and gritty special features. Gather in hordes and preorder your copy now for $24.95 on Blu-ray or $19.95 on DVD and watch it when it’s unleashed on December 31st!
NEW YORK, NY – DECEMBER 2, 2013 – Raro Video is proud to announce the Blu-ray and DVD release of Umberto Lenzi’s zombie horror film Nightmare City in a new HD transfer from the original 35mm negative and packed with special features.

Umberto Lenzi’s zombie shocker Nightmare City stars actor Hugo Stiglitz as a reporter caught in a living, breathing zombie hell. When an airplane comes into contact with radiation from a nuclear disaster it causes the passengers to mutate into scabby-faced humanoids with a compulsion to kill and drink the blood of their victims. As the zombies move into the city and beyond, will anyone or anything be able to stop the wave of bloody death and disease that threatens to decimate mankind?
Filled with nonstop violence, gory special effects and pulse-pounding music and featuring supporting performances by Laura Trotter, Francisco Rabal and Mel Ferrer, RARO is proud to present this oddball gem of Italian splatter completely remastered and uncut.
