Nightmare City and the Limits of Restoration

by James White

Jean-Luc Godard famously began his 1967 masterpiece, Weekend, with an opening title card that read: “This film was found on a rubbish heap.” These words came to mind as I was completing work on our new restoration of Nightmare City, the 1980 Italian zombie shocker from Umberto Lenzi. This is a project that’s presented us with a host of technical problems from that start, and while that film didn’t arrive on a pile of garbage, the extent of the damage that the original film elements endured over the past 35 years might have well included such a scenario.
