Raro Video Will Release Nightmare City
on Blu-ray and DVD on December 31st
New HD transfer from original 35mm negative for the first time on Blu-ray
"It's not heavy, rather it's a cheap and greasy celebration of trashy delights, easily consumed and processed with no real lasting effect outside of the urgent desire to see it again, and again, and again. And there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. So here's to Lenzi's non-zoms. Long may they run."
- Chris Alexander, Fangoria
"From Italian director Umberto Lenzi comes one unique zombie movie. Maybe super zombies is a more accurate term because I've never seen zombies like this before. They are a particularly nasty kind that not only move fast, but are extremely intelligent and organized in their attacks" - Horrornews.net
| 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. |
Nightmare City comes to Blu-ray and DVD with a street date of December 31st and a prebook date of December 3rd. The Blu-ray SRP is $34.95, and the DVD SRP is $29.95.

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.
