Italian filmmaker Umberto Lenzi is an underrated and under appreciated horror and exploitation director. When casual fans think of European horror directors they normally think of Bava, Fulci or Argento and to a lesser degree maybe Franco or Rollin. Those same people probably at least recognize Lenzi's most notorious film, Cannibal Ferox (aka Make Them Die Slowly) as being the sleazy cousin to Ruggero Deodato's similarly-themed (and arguably better) Cannibal Holocaust. But Umberto Lenzi is much more than that "cannibalsploitation" classic. He has a huge resume that includes giallo, Poliziotteschi (Italian cops and robbers), westerns, war and with Nightmare City, a zombie flick... kinda.
