A Poem: For the love of Nightmare City

I wrote this silly rhyme after watching Nightmare City on DVD for the first time, and also uncut and in the correct ratio for the first time - it was a revelation and made me fall in love even more. The DVD was from Italian Shock, and since then it's been released a lot better DVD's of course, like the one from Blue Underground above, or from AWE and Njuta Films.

For the love of Nightmare city

Oh God, how I love Nightmare City
The cast, the script – so witty!

Watching Hugo Stiglitz sleep through his role
Less inspiration than the sleepiest mole!

Maria Risarua Inaggui beautiful and nude
Hey, Francisco Rabal, what a horny dude!

See how the monsters from the plane leap
(and at the same time watching Hugo sleep)

Waving with axes and sharp knifes
Doing their best, taking bloody spanish lifes!

Action, romance, suspense
Everything makes so much sense!

Bloody action all the way
Monsters killing innocent people everyday!

Mel Ferrer in his suit is standing
Looking worried when the plan is landing

“No panic in this town” he orders with a deep voice
“Kill all the monsters, that´s our only choice”

Hugo tries to warn the innocent people at home
But instead the horrible hell-dancers the TV-screen roam!

Mutants attack the TV-station, with axe's and knifes!
All those silly smurf-dancers, sacrifices their lifes!

Eating throats and heads, asses and tits
While taking non-fatal bullet-hits!

Hugo´s tired eyes are open wide
While TV-technicians besides him died

Not making one facial expression
Watching the bloody monster session

All this and many things more
I just this movie love and adore

Stelvio created such a great funky score
I just want to listen to it more and more!

And those wonderful pizza-faces
Giuseppe and Franco boldly made, still amazes

My love for this movie is incredible you see,
Thank you Umberto, thanks Italian Shock DVD!

I first seen this when I was 12 or 13 and I thought that the aerobic scene was set in the hospital (probably because the cameramen are dressed as doctors). The video was in German and I didn't have a clue what they were saying. I'd imagined that they observe these dancing people trying to find out what is wrong with them. Then enter the zombies and they spoil everything, after which they make their way to the other floors of the hospital.
Now I know that those 'dancing people' were simply fashion-victims.

Deliria: That's a fantastic interpretation of the scene! Thanks for sharing it with me! :) When you describe it like that, it actually feels more logical than what it really is :)
