30th anniversary! New 4K restoration from Severin films!

Ease into the month of love with this cult classic: a bizarre mix of horror, comedy, and romance. 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 deal with those who come back to life with a hunger for human flesh. But Dellamorte's job soon becomes much more complicated when he falls for an 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 (or DELLAMORTE DELLAMORE) is a late masterpiece of Italian horror: quirky, gory, romantic, and unlike anything else.

“What makes Cemetery Man so extraordinary and entrancing is the way it manages to balance two very disparate tones: over-the-top zombie comedy and a dreamy arthouse mood. These seem like they’d be constantly clashing with each other, but [director] Soavi casts a spell that carries throughout the entire movie.” Drew Dietsch, Bloody Disgusting

“Soavi sticks to the sex-and-gore-soaked extremism of the giallos he cut his teeth on, but his herky-jerky editing and lunging, spinning camera are most reminiscent of the Evil Dead movies, and the humor comes from the same dark, caustic place, albeit with a romantically sophisticated European twist.” Tasha Robinson, The AV Club
