Inept but weirdly compelling, `Nights of Terror' (or `Burial Ground' or `Zombie Dead' or `Zombie IV' or `That One With The Weird Kid That Looks Like A Small Dario Argento') is by no stretch of the imagination a great (or even good) film, but it for some hard-to-fathom reason it is oddly watchable, and even more oddly re-watchable.

The plot, of course, is an irrelevance. A professor investigating mystic Etruscan rituals (who looks oddly like the late comic-book artist Massimo Belardinelli of 2000AD fame) apparently triggers a revival of some local corpses in the grounds of his extravagant mansion, and said living dead then proceed to lay siege to the house. Meanwhile, the professor's randy friends are over for the weekend. Of course, rather than sensibly remaining indoors during the zombie assault, the professor's guests, dwindling a little in number, decide to actively let the corpses in (!), on the off-chance that the shambling horrors might just leave them alone. They don't. After that, there's not much else to do but abandon mansion and take refuge in a local monastery in the hope that monks and zombies don't mix... yes, the cast has clearly never seen the `Blind Dead' films.

Did I say the plot was an irrelevance? I may have meant that it's non-existent, but that has to be the secret to this film's strange charm - you don't have to worry about anything other than enjoying 85 minutes of decidedly decayed but rather endearing -looking Gino De Rossi zombies harassing the wealthy and their servants, for no adequately explored reason.

"Burial Ground" is the epitome of Italian zombie films. The film utilizes the ancient Etruscan civilization as the origin of the zombies. In the opening scene, a Rasputin looking professor is killed before the opening credits. Several couples come to visit at the house near the mausoleum providing us with a steady flow of victims.

The zombies in this feature have missing eyes and maggots. They utilize a slow zombie walk, a walk perfected in Haitian zombie movies, created before the foot drag became popular and a must. These zombies can also use simple tools like a battering ram.

And PLOT SPOILER...if you think you have seen this film before and can't place it, it is the one with the classic scene of young son Michael taking a bite out of mom's naked bosom.

A fun film in a campy kind of way. Not for serious film watchers. For those who want to learn more misinformation about the Etruscan civilization from horror films, try "Neverlake."

There is a million 80s zombie movies so its not worth comparing this to them in any way, this movie on its own is amazing horror, the story is slightly weak and the acting is cheesy as hell but its great fun from start to finish, good old fashioned practical zombie make-up and over the top gore effects with blood splattering everywhere, the zombies really are quite unique and lots of detail has gone into the rotting flesh look with maggots and worms falling off, these are some of the coolest zombies ever created for a movie, the casting is rather hilarious with a 30 something midget actor playing a child, the music score is your usual style for most zombie flicks and adds a good sense of dread to go with the kills, if you love the 80s cheesy horror zombie gore fests this is a must have classic!! This is also available on bluray if you can find it and is a region free disc!!

This film is just horrible. Dont get me wrong I wasnt expecting much but bloody hell! What a waste of time. There is absolutely no plot for a start.

Basically the whole film is something along the lines of this: A man goes to a into a tomb and decides to bash on a wall (or something) this wakes up the dead and he tells them that he is their "friend". Im sorry but wtf?

Then a bunch of random people arrive at a mansion and have sex for a bit then the zombies arrive. For no apparent reason. But these zombies are unlike any other zombie that has ever been in a horror film. They can throw knifes and have a pretty good aim. Plus they can use a battering ram and many other tools. Its just stupid.

The rest of the film is just people running away or rather walking and stopping a few times so the zombies can catch up. These must be the dumbest characters I have ever seen in a horror film. I remember at one point someone walking into a zombie.

Also none of the characters seem to grasp that bashing the zombies in the head is the best way to kill them.

Oh and I forgot to mention that the zombies have the most awful make up i have ever seen. They wear halloween masks and potato sacks. Plus they can never decide whether to walk or run which looks even more ridiculious.

I would advise even the most dedicated zombie fan to stay away from this piece of crap. Well unless you want to see the absolute bottom of the barrel.

HASH(0x94a8f774) out of 5 stars Unabashed gore classic 6 Mar. 2004
By Matthew King - Published on
Format: DVD
Burial Ground is absolutely one of the best entries in the glut of Italian zombie/cannibal films to have been released in the late 70's and early 80's. A fine example of so bad it's great and an absolute party pleaser too. The plot is bare bones simple: A prologue shows an archaeology professor accidentally reviving the dead while on a research field trip. Fast forward a while later. A bunch of guests receive an invitation from this professor to spend a few days of rest and relaxation at his mansion. To their great surprise, they arrive at the mansion with no professor in sight. What they do encounter however are tons (and I do mean tons) of the walking undead praying for their flesh.
The thing I like the most about Burial Ground is the pacing. The initial 20 minutes are somewhat slow but after that we're talking slam bam pacing that never lets go, something you would not get from say, a Lucio Fulci flick. I'm a big fan of Fulci's films but in between zombie attacks things move at a snail's pace. Burial Ground however is as fast as a roller-coaster with innumerable zombie attack scenes and especially creative scenes of gore (although the shard of glass in the eye is definitely in homage to Fulci's Zombie). The zombies look cheap and are super slow but one thing they're not is stupid. How many zombie films do we see where the ghouls use scythes, pitchforks and axes as weapons and even collectively gather to use a battery ram to force their way in? In many ways, these zombies act way more logically than their human victims. I guess the professor did a fine job of tutoring them.
Sure this movie is ridiculous but most zombie films are anyway. There's so much to laugh about in this film. The acting? Please. All of the actors are dubbed anyways and are never given any decent opportunity to show off their ability. The dubbing is atrocious in the worst way. It's one thing when the lips are not in synch with the translator but quite another when the voice comes out as an echoey sound from a different room! One thing that's a winner is the transfer which is surprisingly clear. Due to this quality transfer the film never appears to be as old as it is except for the clothing the actors are wearing of course.
I wish more zombie movies were this unabashedly over-the-top. Tons of gore, tons of nudity, breakneck pacing, a few scenes of incest thrown in for good measure and that's Burial Ground for you. Even though the film is laughable and ultra cheesy, director Andrea Bianchi is still somehow able to instill a genuine sense of terror throughout. There's no happy go lucky ending here folks. Great movie, great transfer, great extras. A must own film for fans of the genre.

HASH(0x94a8f7c8) out of 5 stars Good bloody zombie fun! 11 Feb. 2005
By John Lindsey - Published on
Format: DVD
A professor whom is studying a ancient crypt near a cemetery accidently opens evil from beyond the grave on a burial ground. The curse unleashes the dead to rise up from their grave to devour the living for their cannibalistic needs, lucky for the undead, their main course will be a group of socialites having a weekend in a large mansion.

Somewhat entertaining but gruesome supernatural Italian horror thriller with some flaws such as the phoney looking zombies themselves with the acting, but the gore is definitely nasty even the infamous breastfeeding scene that you'll never forget.

The DVD has a better transfer than the dark and danky Vestron VHS version with great sound, the extras aren't too shabby such as the interview with the director & actress, original trailer to the movie with trailers to other Shreik Show presentations and a neat poster-and-still gallery.

This movie is recommended to gorehounds, zombie movie fans and horror lovers everywhere but those who are squeamish should stay away.

Also recommended: "Night of the Living Dead" ( 1968 and 1990), "Dawn of the Dead" ( 1978 and 2004), "Day of the Dead", "Demons", " Resident Evil 1 & 2", " The Evil Dead", "House By The Cemetery", "Zombie", "City of the Living Dead ( a.k.a.

HASH(0x94a8fc00) out of 5 stars More Irresistible Zombie Trash 6 May 2003
By ACS - Published on
Format: DVD
I don't know why, but I just love zombie movies. I buy every one I can get my hands on. Watch enough of them, though, and you start to figure out that there are only two plots. One is where humans bring the zombies to life, either intentionally or unintentionally, through evil scientific experiments or toxic chemical spills. If you've ever seen Zombie, Hell of the Living Dead, Zombie Holocaust, or Nightmare City, you know what I'm talking about. The other is where someone unwittingly summons or awakens the dead, as in The Evil Dead, City of the Living Dead, House by the Cemetery, The Beyond and this film, Burial Ground: The Nights of Terror.
Here, an archeologist goes poking around in an ancient Etruscan tomb. After banging his hammer on one of the walls a few times, suddenly the place is lousy with hungry, flesh-eating zombies. Are we ever told why this harmless tapping has opened the floodgates of Hell? Nope. But hey, what do you expect? This is a zombie flick, not Fellini. After the zombies are awakened, they spend the rest of the movie just kind of wandering around and making their victims' lives miserable. I say "miserable" because they only attack when their victims are having sex (Friday the 13th anyone?). Like any zombie movie, there's the usual gore and gut-munching once the zombies catch up with their prey (and they do). Nothing special in that department. Maybe the only thing different about these zombies is their ability to use rakes and other garden tools to bust through windows and doors. These guys are pretty handy. They even figure out how to use a battering ram. Go figure.
The film's most notorious scene occurs near the end, when "little" Michael (played by twentysomething actor Peter Bark) decides to make a move on his own mother (Mariangela Giordano). Thankfully, mom shoots him down, though not before allowing him to bare one of her breasts and put his hand up her skirt. Later, when the boy becomes a zombie himself (you saw that coming, right?), he lives out his incestuous fantasies in a most peculiar way. I won't spoil that for you here, but trust me, you'll have to see it to believe it.
All in all, Burial Ground is a pretty decent zombie flick. The movie itself deserves 2 1/2 stars. The many fine extras on this Shriek Show DVD, which include interviews with Giordano and producer Gabriele Crisanti, bump it up another half star. Buy the DVD. It's a zombie movie, how can you resist?
Three out of five stars.

HASH(0x94a8ffcc) out of 5 stars Bruial Ground - DVD OF TERROR!!! 10 Oct. 2002
By Sean - Published on
Format: DVD
What's this month's pick re-relase of heavily edited Euro-horror flicks now transfered uncut to DVD? Why it's none other than "Burial Ground - Nights Of Terror". I've known about this flick for quite a while now. My local video rental store had the old US version of it so I just waited patiently for it to be re-released on DVD, and sure enough it did. I purchased it, took it home, popped it into my DVD player and sat back with a bowl of popcorn waiting for the laughing to commence. Nothing but pure Eurohorror ... grade A right here. This flick is so damn cheesy, I can't praise it enough for entertaining me. The Zombies though are some of the creepiest looking zombies I've seen since Lucio Fulci's "Zombie". In fact they looke like a mix of Lucio Fucli's zombie and the ones from the movie "Let Sleeping Corpses Lie". Much kudos to that! The story is basically this professor who looks like Rick Rubin, whose mansion is located on an ancient burial ground for some unknown reason, unseals an underground ruin and stumbles upon this ancient curse of walking corpses. They eat him, and they all start to walk towards the surface which seems to take them forever when it took the professor to go underground for 1 minute. I guess time has no effect when you're a zombie...Above ground, some sap-happy rich upperclass socialities and collegues of the professor arrives at his mansion and prepare to spend the night. Well we all know what happens; Everybody seem to get frisky and want to automatically have sex in the mansion. There is one couple that has a "son"(which I dare not call him because it's an actual midget wearing a ridiculous toupee) who seems to be so incestuous that throught the whole movie he tries to make to knock-up his own mother. One scene where his mother just saved him from being eaten by zombies he tries to sexually molest her and ends up getting slapped in the face and running off screaming "What's wrong? I'm your son!". This is not really your average zombie flick. I haven't seen one that touches upon the subject of incest as this one has, so I give this film much credit for that. One the more amusing side of the gem, there's one zombie death scene where the maid of the professor's mansions is looking outside on the second level. A zombie is hiding behind a bush and throws what seems to be a railroad spike and pins her had into the wall. The zombies grab this ugly-looking scythe and slowly decapitates her with it. Then the zombies go out of their way to find a toolshed, start chopping down doors, and even use a battering ram??? Yep, you know the kinda. Zombie that can walk and chew bubblegum at the same time. Other than all of the shennanigans this film holds, the dialouge has to be the most amusing: Here's some examples of it:
"You look just like a little whore - but I like that"
"You're getting a raise out of me and it has nothing to do with money"
"Whatever it is, it's not human - It's a walking corpse!"
"Stay back, I'm your friend" (said to a zombie I might add)
The music score alone will quench the thirst for Goblin fans. Also the music score sounds somewhat similar to the classic Sci-Fi movie "Blade Runner".
The extras are very nice too:
- The original US theatrical trailer (still in it's murky 35mm glory)
- Interviews with director Andrea Bianchi and actress Mariangela Giordano
- Still and Poster Gallery
- Trailers for "Zombie Holocaust", "Spasmo", and 2 other obscure Eruo-trash cinema flicks.
"Burial Ground - Nights Of Terror" has earned itself a warm snuggly spot in my DVD collection along my Kevin Smith, Quentin Tarentino, and other assorted horror flicks.

HASH(0x94a900cc) out of 5 stars Interesting little zombie movie 4 Jan. 2005
By G. Laur - Published on
Format: DVD
'Burial Ground' is another relic of that wonderful time period for bad movies - the early 80s. Italy, in particular, was churning out shoddy crap made on minute budgets by the hour, and there was perhaps no subgenre of horror movies that kept Italy more busy than the zombie movie. The key differences between Italian and American zombie films: the Italian ones were cheaper, had bad dubbing, and were interested in but one thing - showing as much blood, carnage, and close-ups of maggoty zombies as is possible. The characters were usually irrelevant and the scripts might as well have been improvised by the actors on the spot.

The string of cheap Italian zombie flicks began with Lucio Fulci's semi-slick rip-off of Romero's zombie films, 'Zombie.' Far cheaper, more obscure and more plotless was Andrea Bianchi's 'Burial Ground.' The fact that this film is technically inept and has pathetic dubbing, even by Italian B movie standards, should not dissuade zombie enthusiasts from checking it out. It wastes no time in getting to its zombies, and despite the obvious masks that the actors are wearing, there's something very unsettling about them. In fact, there are a number of both intentionally and unintentionally unsettling things about this weird little movie, and on just that basis it's worth seeking out.

The music score, which consists of a tuneless series of sci-fi noises, either fits right in or is completely inappropriate - I really don't know which it is. Perhaps it's so inappropriate that it paradoxically becomes perfect. There's also a child character played by an actor who appears to be a middle-aged midget. To make things worse, he has an Oedipal relationship with his mother. It is because of these odd details that this is unique zombie trash and not just zombie trash. And don't worry about getting your gore fix - you will. I recommend this one.
