Burial Ground (1981)
Director: Andrea Bianchi
Main Stars: Karin Well, Gianluigi Chirizzi, Simone Mattioli, Pietro Barzocchinini, Mariangela Giorddano,
Storyline: A crypt gets opened and the zombies rise and attack a group of people in a nearby mansion.
Review (Spoils): Professor Ayres finds some ancient texts and opens a crypt which unleashes an evil which makes the dead within walk again. Zombies start to pour out and head to a manor where a group of young people are staying (to protect themselves). The undead keep coming and slowly work their way into the manor killing them one by one.
The zombies are not the scary part of this film, the little boy Michael (which is not played by a boy, Pietro Barzocchinini) is. He loves and connection to his mother is over the top and some of the scenes are uncomfortable. We have lots of gory zombies, bodies being ripped, eyes popping, incest, nudity and some classic feel much like the film Zombi. Like I said before the characters of Pietro Barzocchinini, Mariangela Giorddano is the scariest! Exploitation at its finest!
Rating: I personally do not know where to start but if you’re a horror fan and love the Italian horror like myself you need to see this film. The violence of the zombies in the film is extreme and fun and the gore never stops. Plus the creepiness of this film just leaves a dry and awful taste in your mouth. Gore and sleaze ………….I’m sold!
