THE CITY OF THE DEAD is an extraordinarily good chiller which still has the power to frighten fans of the horror genre. A college student, Nan Barlow is researching the history of witchcraft. Taunted by her brother and fiance, who have voiced their concern over her silly notions, Nan arms herself with resolve and drives into the small New England village of Whitewood. She is glad that at least she was able to count on the support of her professor. A bit anxious but consumed with curiosity, she will soon embark herself on the journey of her life!

Cheesy, but cool 60's horror film.
I wish there had been more Christopher Lee in it and, really, more of the heroine! What the heck?!
very eerie effects. Very good movie for this time period.
A good movie with a great cast, not to mention nicely creepy atmosphere. Birder scorecard: A starling was used to mark Nan for sacrifice; a cedar waxwing for Patricia.
Tidy little occult thriller. No logic breaks, no detours. Just steady timing. Will say that some of the "American" accents are a bit off.
A number of very cool images alongthe way.
OK for a 60's horror film. Typical witch story.
Cute. Not a classic, but still fun.
I just could not do it !!! If you took a book on how to write a movie on witchcraft then used the step by step formular in a film~~~~~POOF~~~~~~here is that film~~~~~~
Great movie. Really enjoyed it.
If you can't burn 'em, Salem! Great atmosphere and design that is ultimately brought down by a ridiculous ending. Though, that is pretty par for the course in this genre. Worth a watch once.
much fun! better than I expected.
Aka Horror Hotel, 1960 chiller about a New England community overrun by a witch's coven. With Christopher Lee. Not great, not bad, just so so, but loaded with atmosphere if you're into that sort of thing.
VERY GOOD FOR THAT PERIOD IN TIME.
