I love the idea, but I wish Lenzi was directing it instead of Tom. Nevertheless it's nice to have another bad movie being remade, and also great to see that Savini is handling the special effects.

Monstaworx Entertainment is proud to announce that together with the legendary King Of Splatter & Gore TOM SAVINI we are currently developing the spectacular remake of Umberto Lenzi’s horror cult classic NIGHTMARE CITY, with several other legends of horror attached to the project.
When a mutated Ebola & Leprosy virus spreads from Haiti to Miami starts turning people into terrifying, bloodthirsty creatures, a small group of survivors must escape from the City Of The Walking Dead.
Just like George Romero’s ‘Dawn Of The Dead‘, Umberto Lenzi’s ‘NIGHTMARE CITY‘ is a milestone of the zombie genre and 1980’s horror cinema. Lenzi’s work has had a big influence upon modern horror movies such as the 2004 ‘Dawn Of The Dead‘, ‘28 Days Later‘ and ‘Word War Z’, and filmmakers such as Eli Roth and Quentin Tarantino, who confess to being big fans of Lenzi and ‘Nightmare City‘.
The remake will be directed by the King of Splatter & Gore TOM SAVINI who already proved with the critically acclaimed remake of George A. Romero’s ‘Night of The Living Dead’ (1990) that he knows how to create a dignified, thrilling remake of a cult classic. Savini will not only direct the remake, he will also be Special Effects & Makeup Supervisor and actor. Together with the best creative talents from his Special FX academy in Pittsburgh he will guarantee stunning makeup and special effects and will give horror fans what they desperately demand and miss in current horror movies – impressive practical effects and gallons of blood instead of cheap CGI effects.
Umberto Lenzi 2The director of the cult original himself, the Italian maestro of horror and gore, UMBERTO LENZI, will be associate producer of the remake. Oscar nominated DEAN CUNDEY, one of the world’s best cinematographers, who worked on many films of John Carpenter (‘The Thing‘,‘Halloween‘,‘The Fog‘, ‘Escape From New York‘), is in talks to be Director of Photography.
We’re also in talks with several popular actors and stars of the horror genre.
NIGHTMARE CITY won’t be a simple horror movie or remake, it will be a movie with a social message, based on real life events and threats, this will make the movie more intense and more terrifying. The movie will also be a tribute to the suspenseful horror classics of the 1970s and 1980s such as George Romero’s ‘Night Of The Living Dead‘ and ‘Dawn Of The Dead‘, Lucio Fulci’s ‘Zombie‘, or John Carpenter’s ‘The Fog‘. Parts of the profits will be donated to the Ebola response work of Doctors Without Borders and toThe Leprosy Mission international.
NIGHTMARE CITY will also be an INTERACTIVE CROWD-PRODUCTION – from fans for fans and with fans: We have also launched a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo to give fans the great chance to support the film and become a big part of the movie as a Crowd-Producer! Supporters will get the big chance to visit the film sets, be a part of the cast and crew, get cool rewards, win great prizes, be in the movie and work and act together with stars and legends of horror!

Bad idea. This will go straight to DVD most likely.

So a new 'updated' version based on the Ebola scare? Meh...

You just know it won't be a patch on the unhinged randomness of the og. they've been pipped to the post regarding the storyline too...

Yeah, it looks like it could be a 'mail it in and make some cash off of the original's name remake'. But I'm gonna hold out hope that everyone involved does it with some f**king passion and balls and we end up getting something totally unexpected and off the wall insane. *fingers crossed*

No doubt, might've sounded a bit harsh there. but movies that try to attach themselves to 'topical' issues just come off a bit contrived to me. Wasn't there was one about the large hadron collider thingy recently?

But yeah who knows. Shouldn't judge till I've seen it I guess

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
