Iozzia Publishes Article

Alberto Iozzia, Lecturer in Italian, has published an article titled, “Fast Zombies and Social Rights: The Case of Umberto Lenzi’s Nightmare City (1980).” The piece is available here:

From the abstract:

In the tense atmosphere that preceded the May 1981 Italian referendums on abortion, Umberto Lenzi’s Nightmare City is released. Included in several ‘Best Zombie Movies’ lists, Nightmare City is important for at least two reasons; first, because it inaugurates a significant and eventually successful variation on the zombie image: the fast zombie; second, as a commentary on the most salient social debate of the late 1970s and early 1980s – the one on the self-determination of Italian women.
