Watched City of the Living Dead (1980) by an author from letterboxd.com
A psychic participates in a séance where she sees a vision of a Dunwich priest hanging himself in a church cemetery, causing her to die of fright. New York City reporter Peter Bell investigates the séance and learns that the priest's suicide has somehow opened a portal to Hell and must be sealed by All Saints Day, or else the dead will overtake humanity.

This film has almost no interest in anything beyond its makeup and effects. The story would fit on a Post-It note.

Of the effects, the Rice Krispie/maggot fountain was my favourite.

★★
