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.…
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…
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.
There's a line in Terry Zwigoff's GHOST WORLD about something being "so bad its gone past good and gone back to bad again," and you'd think BURIAL GROUND: THE NIGHTS OF TERROR would fit the bill, with its ridiculous zombie makeup and bare outlines of a plot. Instead, this movie is kind of so-bad-its-good that it becomes rather awesome, just flinging in one ridiculously entertaining scene after another.
The plot is quite familiar: a group of friends go to a mansion for a weekend and find themselves sieged by zombies, which played by actors in ridiculously fake makeup. As soon as the zombies start attacking, director Andrea Bianchi (who helmed another guilty pleasure, STRIP NUDE FOR YOUR KILLER) rarely lets…
Burial Ground adheres to every single rule of Italian horror movies.
- There must be a sex scene where a guy starts mouthing at some breasts.
- The power must go out, dramatically, even if it's the middle of the day.
- The cause of the horror must be badly explained.
- Someone must approach a priest, looking for help, only for the priest to turn around at the last second and reveal themselves to be a zombie.
- Children are either dubbed or played by adults.
- It must either begin or end with a quote.
- That quote usually has a misspelling.
-Someone gets their eye gouged out or organs pulled out.
Until I actually looked into it,…
Reminded me a lot of the Blind Dead series. It's a fun Italian zombie romp, with way too many close ups of maggots.
I don't know if it was done just to make everything more creepy, but why cast a 26 year old dwarf in the role of a 12 year old boy? Looking at the character of Michael sent chills down my spine more than any zombie.
When I first searched for the title here on Letterboxd I accidentally wrote "Burial Andersson", which kinda tells a lot how much this movie is identified with Joachim Andersson in my world. I also gives it five stars while Joachim gave MY favorite movie Nightmare City only four! But this just shows what a good and decent person I am! I'm no Burial Ground hater!
Probably the most out-there breast-feeding scene since The Grapes of Wrath.
I was kinda under the impression that I had already seen Burial Ground, but that is not the case. This movie is, put simply, fucking wild. There is no creeping dread, no Romero-ian social commentary, but what we do have is a movie that is violent as all hell, basically non-stop once it gets started. The gore isn't particularly good, but it sure is plentiful, the dubbing is atrocious, and the plot would be predictable if it weren't for the fact that there isn't really much plot here to predict.
As far as the shitty Italian zombie genre goes, I'd put this right up there with Fulci's Zombi 2.…
Dat Peter Bark!
Nutzo Italian zombie awesomeness.
Peter Bark is probably the weirdest creepiest nonkid in a movie ever.
