Fred Andersson’s review published on Letterboxd:
I wrote this when Nightmare City first arrived on DVD years ago. It's brilliant and very touching.
"For the love of Nightmare city"
Oh God, how I love Nightmare City
The cast, the script – so witty!
Watching Hugo Stiglitz sleep through his role
Less inspiration than the sleepiest mole!
Maria Risarua Inaggui beautiful and nude
Hey, Francisco Rabal, what a horny dude!
See how the monsters from the plane leap
(and at the same time watching Hugo sleep)
Waving with axes and sharp knifes
Doing their best, taking bloody spanish lifes!
Action, romance, suspense
Everything makes so much sense!
Bloody action all the way
Monsters killing innocent people everyday!
Mel Ferrer in his suit is standing
Looking worried when the plan is landing
“No panic in this town” he orders with a deep voice
“Kill all the monsters, that´s our only choice”
Hugo tries to warn the innocent people at home
But instead the horrible hell-dancers the TV-screen roam!
Mutants attack the TV-station, with axe's and knifes!
All those silly smurf-dancers, sacrifices their lifes!
Eating throats and heads, asses and tits
While taking non-fatal bullet-hits!
Hugo´s tired eyes are open wide
While TV-technicians besides him died
Not making one facial expression
Watching the bloody monster session
All this and many things more
I just this movie love and adore
Stelvio created such a great funky score
I just want to listen to it more and more!
And those wonderful pizza-faces
Giuseppe and Franco boldly made, still amazes
My love for this movie is incredible you see,
Thank you Umberto, thanks Italian Shock DVD!
