Cemetery Man (1994) Dellamorte Dellamore

Cemetery Man is a fantastic Italian horror-comedy movie from 1994.


Francesco Dellamorte (Rupert Everett) is the groundskeeper at a cemetery where the dead just won’t stay dead—and it’s up to him to kill them again after they become zombies. But Dellamorte’s job soon becomes much more complicated when he falls for a gorgeous and enigmatic young woman (Anna Falchi) whose husband has recently died. Based on the novel by Tiziano Sclavi (DYLAN DOG) and directed by Michele Soavi (THE CHURCH), CEMETERY MAN is a late masterpiece of Italian horror: quirky, gory, romantic, and unlike anything else.
