New On DVD: Midnight Movies Vol. 9: Zombie Double Feature

New this week from Blue Underground is Midnight Movies Vol. 9: Zombie Double Feature, a two disc set that includes Hell of the Living Dead and Nightmare City.

Hell of the Living Dead, from 1980, was directed by Bruno Mattei and stars Margit Evelyn Newton, Franco Garofalo and Selan Karay.

"An accident at a chemical plant unleashes a horrific virus, and an elite SWAT team is sent to New Guinea to investigate. But when they arrive on the hellish island, they discover a plague of flesh-eating zombies as well as a beautiful female reporter who practices nude anthropology. Can the commandos survive this cannibal rampage, uncover a shocking government secret, and still find time for the occasional cross-dressing before the ravenous hordes of the living dead infect the entire world?"

Nightmare City, also from 1980, was directed by Umberto Lenzi and stars Hugo Stiglitz, Laura Trotter, Maria Rosaria Omaggio and Francisco Rabal.

"When a radioactive spill causes mass contamination, thousands of infected citizens are transformed into bloodthirsty undead fiends. But these are not your standard stumbling gut-munchers; this is an all-out attack by fast-moving, flesh-ripping, ass-kicking maniacs that can only be stopped by a bullet to the brain. Get ready for an all-you-can-eat buffet of gunfire, gore and gratuitous aerobics where zombies run, chaos reigns and heads explode. This is Nightmare City!"

Midnight Movies Vol. 9: Zombie Double Feature is available on DVD now.
