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 is a late masterpiece of Italian horror — quirky, gory, romantic, and unlike anything else.

“It's compelling, bizarre, and distinctly Italian in its stylish mixture of sex, violence, and scattershot plotting that only Dario Argento could truly love… American audiences may scratch their heads in bewilderment at much of what goes on here, but the film is still a genuine original when taken as a whole.” —Marc Savlov, Austin Chronicle

“The freshest and quirkiest take on the zombie genre I’ve encountered — and unlike many Italian horror pictures, the laughs are intentional. Yet, this tale of a lonely cemetery caretaker (Rupert Everett) and his odd friendship with a hulking simpleton (François Hadji-Lazaro) is also one of the more emotionally effective movies of its type.” —Ken Hanke, Mountain Express
