Movie Info

THE CITY OF THE DEAD is an extraordinarily good chiller scripted by George Baxt, which still has the power to frighten fans of the horror genre." A college student, Nan Barlow is researching the history of witchcraft. Taunted by her brother and fiancé, who have voiced their concern over her silly notions, Nan arms herself with resolve and drives into the small New England village of Whitewood. She is glad that at least she was able to count on the support of her professor. A bit anxious but consumed with curiosity, she will soon embark herself on the journey of her life!


Critic Reviews for The City Of The Dead

All Critics (2)

The City Of The Dead is both creepy and charming - it's the kind of gently spooky black and white horror that demands a rainy Sunday afternoon and a mug of hot chocolate.

Astute viewers will catch that a narrative bait and switch mirrors one from the same year's Psycho -- it's just one of the startling developments in a film full of fine characterizations, intelligent dialogue, and a pervasive atmosphere of dread.
