This compulsively watchable and quotable black-comedy-zombie classic has it all: gore, humor, heart, brains, sex and nudity, and more gore! Rupert Everett stars as graveyard caretaker Francesco Dellamorte, whose job—aided by his grotesque halfwit sidekick Gnaghi—becomes a little more complicated when the corpses start unearthing themselves after only a week’s rest, looking for human flesh to feed on.
And to complicate matters further, he falls for an enigmatic young woman (Anna Falchi) whose husband has recently died.  Will his resurrected lust for life become greater than his bond with death? (Italy, 1994, 105 mins, English | Dir. Michele Soavi)

“stylish and gruesome” (Washington Post)
“grotesque and touching” (AV Club)
“an experience unlike any other” (Bloody Disgusting).
“the best Italian horror film of the ‘90s” (Fangoria)
