What they say: The fun begins when a fatally curious professor
unseals a mysterious crypt and a veritable army
of shambling, rotting, flesh-hungry zombies rises,
marching into the night in search of prey. Nearby,
a hapless group of socialites is enjoying a quiet
weekend retreat. Unfortunately for them, their
lavish rural villa is right in the monsters path!
What I say: In the annals of Italian horror films, there is no film more bizarre than Burial Ground: Nights of Terror. I first witnessed this at a young age and needless to say it scarred me for life. A
midget dwarf little person playing a 10 year old boy? Crazy! The ugliest zombies ever committed to film? Horrifying! Bear traps in the garden? Nightmarish!
My love of zombie cinema is no secret to anyone I have ever met, and next to
Return of the Living Dead, Burial Ground is probably my fave zombie movie. It has everything a zombie fan could want. Good (for the budget) effects, lots of zombies doing crazy stuff, some ample nudity, and our pal the
midget dwarf little person biting his mothers nipple off. How can you lose? There’s no frickin way!
On top of all the zombie goodness I remember, the picture quality is beautiful! The colors are a bit washed out but I would imagine that was the fault of the print its self and not the digital conversion. This blows away the previous DVD release and honestly I don’t see any way possible for the film to ever look better!
Now Tokyo Shock where the hell is that Black Demons Blu?
Blu-Ray Disc: 9/10
MY HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION!!!
