The gates of hell have opened
Professor Ayres discovers a secret in an ancient stone and when he opens a crypt, he revives zombies that kill him. He had invited three couples to visit him in his manor to reveal his discovery. However, they never get around to meeting the professor. Out of the blue, the zombies attack them and they seek shelter in the mansion.
From the writer of the unofficial, Italian sequel to the 1970s Ozploitation film Patrick, Patrick Still Lives (Piero Regnoli), comes Burial Ground: The Nights of Terror, directed by Andrea Bianchi (Strip Nude for Your Killer).
Coincidentally I'm wearing my Burial Ground shirt as I type this days after rewatching it. Now THIS is one of those movies with a devoted cult following and I'm proud to be among the ranks. The English dub is so damn quotable and the cast (okay, Peter Bark) are very memorable.
In wasting absolutely NO time on pesky things like plots, the gore starts instantaneously and doesn't stop until the credits roll. It's such a simple set up that you have to respect their audacity.…
Film #24 of my Band-tastic Halloween Season
There's nothing like a cheap Italian zombie movie and this one is brutal.
Some of the zombies look decent and some of them are fantastic. They're not mindless, bumbling creatures either. They use tools and weapons and generally fuck up everyone's day.
Speaking of fucked up, there's this dude named Peter Bark. He plays a little boy in the movie but he looks like a tiny little 30 year old and he kind of looks like Dario Argento which is even creepier. Turns out he was a creepy-looking little person and was actually 25 when the movie was filmed. I'm not even going to go into why he's such a notorious character but…
WARNING: THIS REVIEW SMELLS OF DEATH!!!
Bianchi’s notorious zombie shocker often plays second fiddle to the likes of the Italian ‘big boys’ of the genre, with Fulci’s Zombie Flesh Eaters, The Beyond, City of the Living Dead and The House by the Cemetery stealing the hearts (and brains) of most horror fans. Add to this already impressive list the likes of Marino Girolami's Zombie Holocaust, Lenzi’s fun, radioactive zombie apocalypse vehicle Nightmare City, and even Mattei’s cheese-fest Zombie Creeping Flesh, and The Nights of Terror is oft forgotten, or relegated to B-Class status.
Filmed in 1981, riding on the wave of the post Dawn of the Dead zombie craze, and hopping straight onto the Fulci zombie band-wagon, Burial Ground is…
There is not a more perfect guilty pleasure movie than this. There is NOT.
And to think I hated this movie the first time I saw it... I have become much wiser since then.
All Night Italian Splatterfest - Film 4/4. Also known as Zombie 3 or The Nights of Terror.
Burial Ground wins the award for best make up of the night. The zombies looked amazing. It also wins the award for the weirdest movie of the night. A man child who wants to still breast feed - whoa. Watching this you almost feel like you are going crazy because there truly feels like there is no escape from the onslaught of the dead.
As with all of the other Italian horror films I watched the atmosphere and location was killer.
So it's great to finally put the film to the Astron-6 spoof www.youtube.com/watch?v=c9q2R07AqUw
BURIAL GROUND aka BURIAL GROUND: NIGHTS OF TERROR or (as I watched it) THE ZOMBIE DEAD is an Italian zombie film very much from the Fulci era. The zombies are accidentally freed from a crypt at the beginning of the film and they then descend towards a mansion and its occupants. And that's your plot.
Also rising from nearby graves after this curse is broken, these zombies are awesomely gross to look at and they are all distinctive from each other. Also it's nice to see them work as a team and utilize weapons but they're still slow lumbering things.
Most of the human characters aren't memorable…
the opening theme sounds a lot like dave brubeck's take five. there are also some other interesting sounds/music/noises, etc. on the film's soundtrack.
there are two beautiful brunettes.
this would make a great second film on a double feature with troll 2. yes, the two films have much in common.
good ole wikipedia: "Release
Burial Ground: Nights of Terror was given a belated limited release theatrically in the United States by the Film Concept Group 1985. It was subsequently released on VHS by Vestron Video under the alternate title of Burial Ground. In the UK the film was released on VHS in 1986 as Nights of Terror with over 13 minutes of BBFC and distributor cuts, before being re-released in…
The half star is for the maggot wrangling in this film. And for Peter Bark, a grown man playing an 8 year old boy with an unhealthy fixation with his mother. This is pure trash of the highest order: enjoy or take it to the curb.
The second of a surprise Italian triple feature.
"The earth shall tremble.... graves shall open.... they shall come among the living as messengers of death and there shall be the nights of terror...." - Prophecy of the Black Spider.
For a low budget Italian horror film from the early 80s, this is actually pretty good! I enjoyed it immensely.
Well we know Italians for their pizzas, art, culture but mostly for their movies...Deluxe Cannibal Zombie extravaganzas...Bravo muah!
First time that i saw this movie i was thinking in myself:"WTF is this stupid low budged piece of shit-e" but i was wrong, so fucking wrong after i watched almost 50+ zombie movies i can tell this is one of the best and again i was WRONG!
Well story is simple some guy made discovery deep in some crypt and Italian zombies come alive and bite his neck, then three couples coming into near by castle to spend some time(one couple having their son witch in reality is not boy but a 26 year old man, who is dwarf) to spend…
Media Blasters' disc could have been better. Guess we'll have to see what the upcoming 88 Films Blu-ray looks like and what features they have in store.
Welcome in 2015 and start with Andrea Bianchis sleazy masterpiece - there can be no other. I've seen this so many times that I've lost count. Wonderful wonderful nutty movie.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
What starts off as a classic 80s T&A fest, replete with isolated Italian country manor, turns into an exercise in papier-mâché zombie masks. A bunch of well to do couples are invited to the mansion of an eccentric professor who seems to have wandered off. They take this as an excuse to get a whole lot of action. SO much so that they wake the dead, who, it appears, are quite peckish.
For a low budget B-horror this wasn't doing too badly. The makeup was pretty well done for an amateur affair—though it has to be said: professionals get paid for a reason! When the zombies were seen hoisting themselves out of their graves, the makeup didn't extend to the…
