Incubo sulla cittÓ contaminata (Nightmare City) (Invasion by the Atomic Zombies) Reviews
Hell, the scene of them pouring out of an abandoned airplane is almost worth the price of admission alone.
A really rewarding and unique Italian zombie film, well worth a rental at the very least.
In Italy a plane crashes in a small town. The plane and those on it are infected with radiation from a government experiment. Passengers emerge from the plan with guns, knives, and a mouth full of teeth. They use what they have to kill everyone they come in contact with. As they leave the small town and head towards a small city, the country of Italy is at risk of being taken over. Can anyone stop the outbreak?

Umberto Lenzi, director of An Italian in Greece, Desert Commandos, Last Man to Kill, Paranoia, All Out, The Manhunt, Cannibal Ferox, Violent Naples, Ghosthouse, and House of Lost Souls, delivers Nightmare City. The storyline for this picture had potential but was a bit bland for a while before it finally picks up in the end. The special effects are surprisingly well done and the acting is above average. The cast includes Hugo Stiglitz, Laura Trotter, Sonia Viviani, and Ugo Bologna.

I found this movie on Netflix and had to watch this picture. The plot sounded interesting and who can skip a worthwhile zombie picture? I found this film on par with the original The Crazies. Both films have a lot of dead space that turns boring but when there is action, it is very good. The special effects were amazing for this era and on par with Zombie 2. I do recommend seeing this, but it wasn't as good as it could have been.
