City of the Living Dead (1980) Poster

Christopher George: Peter Bell



  • Theresa : Mary, tell us what you saw in your last vision.

    Mary Woodhouse : The city of the dead. The living dead. A cursed city where the gates of hell have been opened.

    Peter Bell : Where exactly is this city?

    Mary Woodhouse : I don't know where it is. All that I know is that it's called Dunwich.

    Peter Bell : Well, I've never heard of it. How do you know? How can you be so sure?

    Mary Woodhouse : I read the name... on a tombstone.

    Theresa : Mr. Bell, if those gates are left open, it could mean the end of humanity. We've got to get them shut again. At midnight on Monday, we go into All Saint's Day. The night of the dead begins. If the portholes of hell aren't shut before, no dead body will ever rest in peace. The dead will rise up all over the world and take over the Earth! You must get to Dunwich, Mr. Bell. You must reclose those gates!

  • Peter Bell : Hi, officer. I'm looking for Sergeant Clay. Is he in there?

    Policeman outside apartment building : And who are you?

    Peter Bell : Oh, my name's Peter Bell. I'm with...

    Policeman outside apartment building : Don't tell me. You're a newspaper reporter. I can smell you guys a mile away.

    Peter Bell : You're right. I'm actually a journalist. Listen, there's a rumor going around your station house that some young woman died mysteriously in an apartment up on the third floor and I was wondering if I can talk to Sergeant Clay about it to investigate more about this mystery.

    Policeman outside apartment building : There's no mystery around here. I'm the next guy who dies if I let any unauthorized people into this building.

    Peter Bell : [getting a little frustrated]  Uh... say listen. Is there any way you and I can come to uh... say a "gentlemen's agreement"? Huh?

    Policeman outside apartment building : You're talkin' into my deaf ear, pal. Now take my advice and beat it before the sergeant comes out.

    Peter Bell : [walks away]  Okay... I'll take your advice.
