One year after releasing Zombi 2, Lucio Fulci decided to continue pursuing the success of the zombie genre and teamed up with his trusted crue, composer Fabio Frizzi and cinematographer Sergio Salvati to make Paura nella città dei morti viventi. It also gained recognition from horror fans but a year later he exceeded his own expectations with the success of L'aldilà which would ultimately become his magnum opus.
Music by Fabio Frizzi.
