Editorial Reviews:

Rupert Everett (MY BEST FRIENDS WEDDING) stars as Francesco Dellamorte, a cemetery watchman whose job is to slaughter the living dead when they rise hungry from their graves. But following a tragic tryst with a lusty young widow (stunning Anna Falchi in one of three sexy roles), Francisco begins to ponder the mysteries of existence. Is there long-term satisfaction in blasting the skulls of returners? Will his imbecile assistant find happiness with the partial girl-corpse of his dreams? And if death is the ultimate act of love, can a psychotic killing spree send Dellamorte to the brink of enlightenment? Italian horror master Michele Soavi (STAGE FRIGHT) directed this brilliantly bloody black comedy also known as DELLAMORTE DELLAMORE that Gore Score calls "a deliciously demented, delightfully surreal stew of sex, death, splatter, male-bonding, barfing, zombies and nothing less than the Ultimate Meaning of Life!"

1 out of 5 stars Extremely Disappointing!   June 26, 2006
  0 out of 2 found this review helpful

All of these positive reviews, calling this the greatest movie of all time are way off base. What makes this movie so great? There are tons of Italian Zombie movies out there and a good 95% of them are better than this drivel.

After reading all of these reviews calling this a "classic" I went in expecting something of an "Evil Dead" or "Dead Alive" type of film which are filled with gore and have some nice comedic bits. "Cemetery Man" is simply BORING, that's right it BORING! Slowly paced, dim witted and down right JUNK!

If you want to see a good Italian zombie flick check out some of Lucio Fulci's work like "Zombie", "City of The Living Dead" or "The Beyond" all superior works compared to this god awful movie. Save yourself about 2 hours of your life and stay away from this extremely boring film.

5 out of 5 stars A Horror Classic   June 25, 2006

I can't believe that it took all these years for this great movie to be released on DVD in the states. If you've never seen this classic pick it up. You won't be dissappointed. It has everything a genre fan could want and more. Highly recommended.

5 out of 5 stars How is this film still UNKNOWN?   June 24, 2006
  2 out of 3 found this review helpful

I can't get over the fact that this film isn't a household name to horror fans like Evil Dead 2. I live in NYC and could not find this title in stock anywhere. As you may or may not know, this film has never been on DVD in the states (unless you bought region 2 or bootlegs) and finally it's here. This movie is incredible. If you like Sam Raimi or Peter Jackson's early horror films, you will not be dissapointed. Simply incredible.

5 out of 5 stars An overlooked Italian horror gem finally on R1 DVD!   June 23, 2006
  2 out of 3 found this review helpful

Fracesco Dellamorte ( Rupert Everett) is not just your average cemetery worker, he kills the walking undead at night that try to escape the cemetery so they can feed off the flesh of the living. He has a dim-witted fat assistant to help him with his daily and nightly work, he also falls for a beautiful widow (Anna Falchi) but as tragic soon starts when she dies strange things start happening as more of the dead are coming back to life. The grim Reaper eventually tells Dellamorte to stop killing zombies and kill only the living as it makes him descend into madness to kill some people.

Strange, dark and funny Italian-French-German horror comedy in the tradition of H.P. Lovecraft, Lucio Fulci and George A. Romero. Based on a Italian horror comic called "Dylan Dog", this movie is one of the 90's best horror flicks and one of Italy's best of the genre along with some of the likes of Dario Argento's and Lucio Fulci's works for it's a rare diamond in the rough among fans of horror with nudity, the lovely Ms. Falchi in three roles, dark humor and gore abound with a strange ending.

This DVD has a great transfer on the picture and sound quality that Anchor Bay can offer like usual with some decent extras like a featurette, the original Italian theatrical trailer and a biography of the director, this movie is a must have for your zombie and horror movie collection because if you haven't seen it then you don't know that your missing out on a truly outstanding gem of the genre.
