This week I want to look at different horror movie monsters and highlight some movies you might not be too familiar with. First up – zombies.
Movie: Dellamorte Dellamore (Italian title) Cemetery Man (American title)
The Story, in a nutshell: A cemetery caretaker is unsuccessfully looking for love, and also killing the zombies that come back to life in his cemetery.
Reason it’s awesome: I just love the attitude of the main character, Francesco. He’s discovered that people buried in his cemetery often come back to life a few days after being interred. No one in town would believe him, and it’s easier than filling out the mountain of paperwork it would take to report the problem. So he re-kills them, and puts them back in their grave. And in the meantime, he’s trying to fall in love. It’s both surreal, and quirky.
