Product Description

Zombies, Sex and Guns, Oh My!


Meet Francesco Dellamorte (Rupert Everett), gravedigger and guardian of the mythical Buffalora Cemetery where the dead just don t stay dead. Seven days after burial, the fresh cadavers claw their way out of their coffins looking for flesh to eat. And it's Francesco's job to dispatch these 'Returners' before they escape into the local community.

But his quest to stop the dead from invading the world of the living falters when he falls in love with a beautiful and enigmatic widow visiting her husband's crypt. For when he kills her by mistake, and is cursed to see her face for eternity, the difference between being alive and dead become chillingly confused in his shocked and romantically damaged brain.

From Michele Soavi, director of THE CHURCH and THE SECT, a surreal blend of George Romero gore, Dario Argento style and Monty Python irreverence in the weirdest zombie movie ever made.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential for zombie fans 17 Feb 2012
I've heard quite a lot over the years about Michele Soavi's Dellamorte Dellamore but never really had the chance to check it out. It stars Rupert Everett as a cemetery caretaker at a graveyard where the dead rise from the grave within seven days of burial and he must finish them off, usually with a shot to the head. The film is full of dark comedy and it uses it very well, especially with the simple character Gnaghi (François Hadji-Lazaro). Another character of interest is 'She' played by the beautifully mesmerising Finnish actress Anna Falchi. Special effects are extremely good throughout and it is just another film that shows the viewer that for horror, non-CGI effects are far more impressive. My favourite scenes include the killing of the nun and the motorbike crash, both highlighting the skills of the effects team. If you're a zombie fan, this is an essential purchase. Highly recommended. 4.5/5

4.0 out of 5 stars Mental Italian Cult Zombie(ish) Classic 18 Jan 2008
Iv just recently started to watch these wierd and wonderful Italian movies. The likes of Dario Argento, Mario Bava and Lucio Fulci. On the whole, although some of them are fantastic, they are very hard to watch. You watch them once, feel enriched for the experience, and then never watch them again. This movie is different. Dont get me wrong, it is by no means an easy ride, but it keeps you watching and trying your best to fathom out whats going on from start to finish. Glued to it I was. Adapted from an Italian graphic novel, DELLAMORTE DELLAMORE, is a dark horror fanatasy, its story twisting and turning through many different macabre situations. Leading its main protagonist Francesco Dellamorte, the caretaker of Buffalora Cemetary, on a journey of surreal experiences which include the dead returning from the grave, an insane killing spree and a number of sexual encounters with actress Anna Falchi(one of the most beautiful women in the world).
Cinematically it is as rich and sumptuous as Suspiria or Profondo Rosso, stylish and creepy, setting up every scene and set piece with painfull detail. The characters are strange and complicated and the plotline unfathomably wonderfull. If you like your scary movies like Scream or I Know What You Did Last Summer then this isnt for you, but if you are a hardcore horror buff then this is an absolute must.

Did I mention how gorgeous Anna Falchi is?

5.0 out of 5 stars A Work Of Genius 27 Mar 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I had heard of this film marginally, but never seen it before purchasing the Shameless edtion. I have to say, I was totally stunned at what is a work of rare genius it is. Given the number of times I was laughing with my mouth hanging open at how completely but wonderfully bonkers some parts of this film are, but on some level it just all comes together beautifully and works, and makes a weird kind of internal sense (though don't ask me to explain it). It's poetic, and dreamlike, and profound, and clever - but doesn't pull it's punches with it's visceral imagery - although the direction and cinematography make for some thoroughly beautiful, if macabre, imagery at times.

This really should be a much better known and more widely seen film. I manages to blend buckets of blood with the depth and integrity of a good arthouse film, without ever being the slightest bit pretentious.

This is often cited as the last of the classic Italian horrors. If that's the case, then at least it went out on a high.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unique, strange and wonderful 5 Nov 2012
Dellamorte Dellamore is one of those films that the director Michele Soavi is best known for. And not without a reason, since this is a film that is delightfully unique and strange. Rubert Everett is Francesco Dellamorte, an undertaker who works at a cemetary where people just won't stay dead. Togerher with his assistant Gnaghi he is doomed to kill the dead while trying to find the woman of his dreams... Dellamorte Dellamore aka The Cemetary Man is a different kind of a zombie film. Soavi has created a world that is absurd, grotesque and filled with dark humor. One of the best - if not THE best - italian horror films from the 90's.

Shameless has made an excellent job bringing this film on DVD, with lots of neat extras, excellent image quality and optional italian audio. If you're looking to buy this film, the Shameless DVD release is definitely the way to go!

5.0 out of 5 stars Existentialist Horror 8 Oct 2006
This wonderful and very odd movie turned up on C4 a few years ago and hasn't been seen before or since. Definitely a cult classic, it fits the genre of a low budget, European schlock horror movie and will appeal to fans of that type of late night, back-from-the-pub kebab and chips offering. Francesco Delamorte (Everett)is a custodian of an Italian graveyard, burying the dead during the day and despatching them again at night with a variety of weapons in increasingly bizarre fashion ably assisted by the Igor-like Gnaghi (Hadji-Lazaro). Needless to say, he's getting cheesed off with this until the story takes a twist when he falls in love with a beautiful, nameless woman (Falchi) who returns to haunt him in more ways than one.

I'm not a fan of Everett but he is fantastic as the world-weary and laconic cemetery man and through him the film poses many questions about life and death, love and loss. On the one level it is a typically low-brow gore fest with an apallingly bad script in places and most definitely the blackest of comedies. On the other, it bravely questions the nature of obsession, love and fate. The ending is magnificent and like all good thought-provoking movies will stimulate ideas and debate long after the credits have rolled.
