It’s MONDO ITALIANO MONTH at Monday Mondays, featuring a hilarious heaping helping of bad movie pasta from Italy, served up with an extra sprinkling of cheese!
“The gates of hell have opened!” A cursed country estate filled with horny, jet-setting socialites is besieged by flesh-ripping, gut-munching zombies unleashed by a nutty professor in this jaw-dropping Italian horror flick filled with sex, gore and depravity that takes bad movie mayhem to shocking new heights!
“Bizarre, disgusting and awesome … one of the most unique and outrageous entries in the zombie genre.” – Oh, the Horror!
For his only foray into the zombie genre, sleaze master Andrea Bianchi (Satan’s Baby Doll) serves up a highly-entertaining, highly stomach-churning foray into all-out-terror, driven by hordes of shuffling, crusty-faced, undead flesh-eaters who, in addition to removing heads with their bare hands and snacking on tasty innards, also enjoy utilizing weapons like scythes, axes, and hammers to take down their victims. And what a cast of victims it is! Watch in awe as this group of bouncy, flouncy Italian swingers canoodle like rabbits (even in a graveyard!), before being served up like sexy appetizers to the brain-dead zombies (although whether it’s the humans or the zombies that are more brain-dead is open to debate). And the horror of the undead freaks is nothing compared to the bizarre relationship between a hysterical mother and her mega-creepy young son (a supposedly 12-year-old boy disturbingly played by a diminutive adult actor in a bad wig), that lends the film some of its most notorious sequences. Hilariously awful, gloriously grotesque and jaw-droppingly weird, Burial Ground is a truly tasty slice of Italian exploitation. (Dir. by Andrea Bianchi, 1981, Italy, badly dubbed in English, 85 mins., Rated R)
