    I just watched this film. I loved it, it was pure Fulci all the way to the drill press scene. But anyway, this ending has me stumped. I really have no idea. Is it one of those David Lynch endings that aren't supposed to make any sense or what.

    City of the Living Dead had a different ending filmed. But it was destroyed by fire or somehow got lost and thus the current ending came about. I believe they ran out of funds to re-shoot the intended ending.
    The rest of the film more than made up for the crappy ending, IMO.[​IMG]

    I heard that someone accidentally spilled coffee on the ending, and then, like Herm said, they ran out of funds for a reshoot. Regardless of the ending, CITY OF THE LIVING DEAD is my favorite Fulci film! [​IMG]
