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.…
Il notti del terrore aka Burial ground is my all time favorite go to movie when everything else fail, I watch it at least once a year, it has that level of comfort. I'm not even going to bother to write a review this time, just tell you a little story.
Everyone who has seen the movie knows the effigy that is Peter Bark, the adult male with the horrendous haircut that plays the incestous Michael. You'll never forget him once you've watched it. So, fourteen years ago I met my girlfriend Susanne, now the mother of my daughter. Her cousin sews clothes for a swedish fashion designer and started her trade in the late 2000:s by moving to Rome…
Burning zombies, awful dubbing, Michael, scantily dressed ladies, terrible dialogue, Michael, maggots, icky body fluids, zombies with tools, rampant canoodling, intestine munching, Michael, a completely nonsensical plot, incest, Michael, decapitation, climbing zombies, inappropriate breastfeeding, zombie monks, Michael.
As wonderful and skanky as the rubber-masked and latex encrusted zombies are, they pale into insignificance once you've met Michael! A man-child so weird and spooky that the term 'uncanny valley' just doesn't do him justice. He's at the bottom of an uncanny crevasse, deeper and darker than the Mariana Trench!
At the 30 minute mark, you're thinking "how the fuck can they keep up this pace for another hour?" but it just keeps on giving! Could this be the perfect Italian zombie…
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…
Although I'm proud that I lived through the era where the only way to see films like this was to buy bootleg VHS tapes, it's a bit annoying that my first encounters with the likes of Burial Ground were on cropped and badly degraded prints.
88 Films' loving restoration was announced about 18 months ago, and has been available to pre-order for almost as long, but it's finally here, and it looks great! (And Mikel Coven's rundown of the director's filmography in the extras is HILARIOUS!) I wish this how I'd seen it originally, as I'd always have known what an excellent zombie flick it is. My one reservation is that the subtitles are for some reason frequently stacked four…
Like a third generation tape dupe of Night of the Living Dead or an even more Italian ripoff of Zombi 2, but with the sleaze and gore factor ratcheted up to 10. Much like Zombi Holocaust/Doctor Butcher, MD, this is not a 'good' movie, but it's so shamelessly entertaining that I can't help but love it. There's almost no plot whatsoever, but you get a badly dubbed 25 year old man playing a child and a score that alternates between new age Casio noodling and synth freakouts instead.
In a way, it's almost like if Juan Piquer Simón (he of Pieces, Extra Terrestrial Visitors, and Slugs fame) directed a zombie film. Love it.

Part 4 of the All Night Secret Horror Marathon at The Hollywood Theater.
Of course a movie like Burial Ground is played at the end of a horror marathon, when you don't know if what you're seeing isn't making sense or if you're hallucinating from all the coffee and lack of sleep. This movie made about as much sense as I expected, but had a lot more incest than I was prepared for. It would be uncomfortable if the whole film weren't so strangely put together. If there's any movie that feels like this one it's Joe D'Amato's Anthropophagus. Both films have an ineptitude that gives the film distinct character and brings wild unpredictability like an…
#4 all-night horror marathon and what a way to go out. It's past 3am and after my nap I'm wide awake for the weirdest and goriest film of the bunch. Glad I stayed to see a small man play a kid who's in love with his mom and does something very disturbing to her towards the end. Keep watching. Great night. Biked home at 5am and couldn't sleep. Go figure.

The fourth and final film of the night. I had seen this once about 16 years ago when I bought a bootleg copy of Zombie 3 on Ebay and was sent a copy of this. I remember being massively disappointed in the movie and I've still never seen Zombie 3. This time around I have to stick to the sentiment, this isn't a very good movie, cheap and clunky and nonsensical with some real shitty looking zombie masks slapped on an army of dirty undead creeps. However, it is totally worth seeing.
The saving grace and the reason you have…
A film I've loved since I rented the VHS as a kid. Watched the new Severin Blu-ray and it looks incredible. Just an over the top cheesy film that is sleazy and cheap and amazing. Plus Peter Bark and the whole biting scene.
"Mother this rag smells of death"
Zombies, gore and guts. Oh and spaghetti.
Whats noticable about this film is the incest subplot involving the effeminate manchild character called Michael played by Peter Bark. I didn't know about this when I first watched the film. Its now seered into my mind for better or worse. This film is for titmunchers of all persuasions.
3rd Annual 31 Days of Horror 10 of 31
Dig deep into the bottom of the horror film barrel and you will find this Italian trash cinema that basically takes the zombies from Lucio Fulci's Zombi and tries to make a film out of it. There is no plot to speak of, just a cast of mostly ugly people making out for no reason other than to be victims of gross papier-mâché zombies who pretty much walk around for most of the movie and sometimes murder our cast members.
Among this film's several issues is the fact that there is nobody to root for...at all. It's a struggle waiting for these terrible excuses for characters to be killed off. There's…
An accidental re-watch, the title rename caught me out again.
Still a pack with parma ham acting , stale cheese, clay baked zombies & a bit of boob munching from inappropriate from bean -headed man-child . Basically, a bad Fulci rip-off with now plot to speak off
These minimal, lo-fi synthesizer scores kill us so hard that we want to be reborn inside the trash-horror movies that…
