Director: Michele Soavi
Starring: Rupert Everett, François Hadji-Lazaro, Anna Falchi
Cemetery Man is a GREAT movie. It’s an Italian/French horror comedy starring Rupert Everett as groundskeeper Francesco Dellamorte, who lives in a small house on the cemetery grounds where the dead rise from their graves on the 7th night after their burial. Rather than tell anyone about this, assuming they wouldn’t believe him and in fear of losing his job, Dellamorte takes it upon himself to shoot them in the head and rebury the bodies. Cemetery Man’s dark, nihilistic humor is tragic, depressing, and fun—all at the same time. All the elements you’d want in a horror, drama and dark comedy come together perfectly. I highly recommend this movie.
