The Gates of Hell Announced for Blu-ray!

Yes! My favorite Fulci classic is finally getting the royal treatment! Just PLEASE don't digitally noise reduce the existing gloriously grainy transfer, BU!

Via DVD Active: "Blue Underground has announced DVD ($19.95) and Blu-ray ($34.95) releases of City of the Living Dead for May 25th, 2010. The only extra material on the DVD will be a Making of City of the Living Dead featurette, the English trailer, the Italian trailer, radio spots, and still gallery. The Blu-ray release will include all that, along with additional featurettes: "Acting Among the Living Dead – Interview with Star Catriona MacColl", "Entering the Gates of Hell – Interview with Star Giovanni Lombardo Radice", "Memories of the Maestro", and a poster and still gallery."

Blue Underground's listing
also states the inclusion of 7.1 DTS-HD, 5.1 Dolby Digital EX, and Original Mono audio tracks. You're the one who got me out in the armpit of the world chasing your...galloping cadavers.

Fuck yeah! I recently watched the excellent Blue Underground New York Ripper BD and thought to myself "I wish Bill Lustig would release some more Fulci nastiness in HD." And at the top of my wish list are City of the Living Dead, Zombie and The Beyond. This is really awesome news.

I'm glad they went with the original art work for the cover too.

This COULD just be the first Blu-ray that I buy of a movie that I already own on DVD.

Excellent cover, this looks like a killer release! V. curious if the making of will actually contain vintage behind-the scenes footage, that would be ace. you dare tread upon the staircase?
