In the small New England town of Dunwich, a priest commits suicide by hanging himself in the church cemetery which somehow opens the gates of hell allowing the dead to rise. Peter, a New York City reporter, teams up with a young psychic, named Mary, to travel to the town where they team up with another couple, psychiatrist Jerry and patient Sandra, to find a way to close the gates before All Saints Day or the dead all over the world will rise up and kill the living.

Exciting, gruesome and very H.P. Lovecraft-esquire supernatural Italian shocker from Lucio Fulci is one of his best movies. Yes the plot is flimsy as it comes but the film does pack one hell of a wallop! cult actor Giovanni Lambardo Radice ("Cannibal Ferox") does a memorable performance as Bob the town black sheep who always gets blamed for everything. There some unforgettable moments of graphic gore such as the spirit of the priest making a girl bleed from her eye sockets like a stigmata painting and throws up her organs literally which is one of the most stomach churning moments i've ever witnessed on screen and also some drilling as well. I also love how Fulci makes the creatures in this movie a mix of ghosts and zombies whom have the power to teleport and crush human skulls with their hands, the film does have some heart-pounding tension like a woman being buried alive as it gets under your skin.

Fabio Frizzi's score is memorable and unique that adds the mood to this creepy, graphic and atmospheric thrill ride that should be viewed by horror fans, HP Lovecraft lovers, zombie and ghost movie fans and even gorehounds alike.
