Movie Reviews:

  • CinemaSerf: This is hilarious. Aside from showing us just how fit Rupert Everett was back in 1994, it’s a daft and enjoyable zombie caper. He is the aptly named cemetery manager “Dellamorte” whom along with his always hungry sidekick “Gnaghi” (François Hadji-Lazaro) is charged with making sure that those he buries actually stay dead! He’s pretty much got this all down to a fine art until the arrival of the gorgeous “She” (Anna Falchi). At this point, his system goes to pot and he finds loads of new uses for the gravestones – under one, it would appear, lies her recently deceased husband! The production is cheap and cheerful, the zombies are relatively easy to dispose of and thus the emphasis can quite squarely be on the eye-candy acting talent who hide nothing from each other (or us). There is a great scene where a bus loaded with passengers takes out both it and some motorcyclists – giving him quite a backlog next day. That sort of typifies what we get here. It will in no way stimulate your brain, but it is quite entertaining.
