Cemetary Man is an excellent movie. It mixes all the things people want to see in a Bad Movie: naked chicks, flesh eating zombies, decapitations, multiple (and random) murders, and fights with undead nuns! There are definitely several rewind-scenes, and some of which will have you laughing your head off! And on top of that, the story behind it is far above par. I say check it right now.

The opening scene is almost the best thing about this movie.  Later, you'll agree that it sucks when you have to kill the reanimated corpse of your recently deceased girlfriend, only to discover she wasn't deceased after all!  And finally, ...all the world's a stage, and we are merely players!

One of my favourite movies of all time, the whole movie was excellent, and so was the ending, it made me think, i can remember just staring at the screen when the ending came up.  Rupert Everett was awesome.

Okay, the plot is so nonexistent at the end I nearly had a Nicholas Roeg attack. What of that naked widow? Holy crap! Nagi was absolutely hilarlious. You can tell the director was a protege of the most famous splatter Italian director, but I can't think of his name. Altogether cool, but the end was upsetting.

I guess it's good that somebody likes this movie, since it was obviously a labor of love.  Cemetery Man sure isn't my cup of tea ('cause I found it boring), but to each his own, I guess.

The Girl is Anna Falchi.  She is THE Babe.
The TOTAL Babe.  Oy, vay!  Oh, my god, I think I'm going to faint just thinking about her...

Oh, yeah, and the movie kicks ass, too!  It's what is supposed to happen when you make a horror film into an art film.  (Lots of exsistential crap an' stuff.)

Check out Gnaghi in "The City of Lost Children".  He's the guy with the BIG head and the funky eyepiece.

Well, I can't really rate this film as I'm to busy saying "What the hell".

I'm pretty sure I like it.  And I pretty sure it's a good movie.  But I'm not sure my brian wants to accept these facts.

Somewhere between a 6 and a 8 out of ten.

Genius or messed-up you be the judge.

(although "The Dark Backwards" Is ten times more messed-up)

Wow... *weird* movie. Can't say I'm too fond of the ending, but I love other aspects: Gnaghi, the mayor ("How are *things* down at the cemetery?"), the subplot with the mayor's daughter's head (the scene where Dellamorte walks in to see the head singing to Gnaghi had me LMAO), the extremely hot girl, the odd obsessions with phone books and dead leaves... Sort of a sexy, foreigny Evil Dead with David Lynch overtones. Except for the ending, it's my kind of movie. Oh, yeah, and the title character is played by Rupert Everett, who would make it big in American movies a few years later.

quite possibly the best horror film of the last decade. really. not that its competition is particularly imposing or anything. still, this would be impressive against just about anything. a great gory horror movie, a hilarious black comedy, and finally a weird existential art flick. just great. soavi showed promise with earlier films like the sect, but here he really delivers. beautifully photographed with lots of absurd humor.
some trivia points for people so inclined - this is based on the italian dylan dog comic, the main character in the strip was patterned after star rupert everett. the whole subplot of dellamorte deciding to have his penis removed for a woman who changes her mind about sex in his absence is an elaborate reference to the tod browning/lon chaney classic the unkown. there's also two references to vertigo in cemetary man. enjoy...

Anybody undertand this movie? I mean, killing zombies is all good and fun, but then the film just veers off onto a whole other astral plane. I just sat there at the end and said, "Huh?". And shame on you, no mention of Rupert Everett, and he's the main character! I wonder what fans of My Best Friend's Wedding would think. . . .

The makers of this film could have driven a busload of American tourists off the cliff and nobody would have blinked an eye, but, a busload of young Italian boyscouts, who were Catholic? This scene and that scene in LOTWW, makes me think that not only our webmaster, but Europeans have something against the boyscouts. Anyway, a great scene, and a great film.

I just saw this movie last night. I liked it - why is it listed on ""? I thought it was extremely witty and it kept my attention. I usually fall asleep during most movies (at night, when I'm at home that is) but this one was definately worth watching. Right up there with Evil Dead. Hmm, and Rupert Everett is yummy.

Post by: patOlOgen on November 25, 2006, 04:09:03 PM
This is actually a real gem! It has got everything you´d expect from a genremovie like this. Gore, random acts of violence, some nudity and a lot of humour. What makes this outstanding is it´s production, the camerawork, setting, editing and of course the music! It tells that Michelle Soavi (apprentice of Dario Argento) has been around for a while.
This one ranks with the best zombieflicks out there! Do not miss it!

This is, no doubt, one of my all time faves. HOW COULD YOU GUYS NOT HAVE LIKED THAT ENDING?! It could be the best part of the film! Anyways, it really is one of the best movies ever. A film for those who like comedy("Stop, he's only eating me!"), Violence ("If you want to prevent the dead from returning to life why not just kill the living?")Romance (Gnaghi and....ugh...the head....), and Drama (Dellamorte's personal anguish). AN INSTANT CLASSIC. Shame on all of you who didn't like this masterpiece.

A little too artsy for me but a decent flick. I love zombies and this one's got em. Loved the Rupert Everett character. And the Curly-esque sidekick that says "nah" a lot. And the ash-made Grim Reaper thing was cool. I give it a 3/5.

Post by: carl on February 04, 2001, 02:17:46 AM
EXCELLENT MOVIE!  Disturbing, funny, and provocative all rolled into one strange artsy gory film.  Filled with simple violence but then tackles deep issues like the rest of the world not even being there or your life just being in a snow globe.  Absolutely great movie.  Not to be mean but how did some of you not get it?

People who hated the ending of this movie are pretty lame. It was a great movie, much more than just a boring horror film. I saw it at the theater the day it came out, which was probably the only day it was out. Love the combination of zombies and surrealism. I can't watch movies unless it is either surreal or has zombies in it, this has both. SHATTER DEAD is another great one. Watch that. Oh yeah, it was also totally stupid, like when the girls head was walking around. I love stupid movies. But I don't love people who wanted the existentialism taken out. Those people are gay.

i dunno, this movie never did it for me; i kept falling asleep. the only thing that could really hold my interest was that GORGEOUS ITALIAN FOX!! if not for her, i would've considered the 90-or-so minutes i spent watching this movie a complete and utter waste.

i am writing a script for a zombie movie that i am making
in the is set in a small housing estate called heaven hill.a chemical spill causes the dead to rise and 4 survivors lock themselves in a underground bunker.
through the night more + more zombies come and groan on the survivors.

this is influenced by George A.Romero's Dead trilogy.i love his dead trilogy but i only own "night of the living dead" + "dawn of the dead".do u know where i could get day of the dead in a store(not the net)?

Gnaghi is played by François Hadji Ladzarro. He is the  leader of one of the most important independant french rock band. This band is called "les garçons boucher" (butcher boys in english). He only François appears in only 4 or 5 european movies but I can assure you he is a very good actor in very different styles (cop, bad boy...). Anyway, his performance in Dellamorte Dellamore is one of the best.

In the Italian comics "Dylan Dog" which Dellamorte Dellamore is inspired, Gnaghi is replaced by a sort of Groucho Marx clone.

Actually, I think it was Dylan Dog that grew out of Dellamorte Dellamore. The novel, of the same name, is by DD's creator Tiziano Scavli. The edition I have has been beautifully illustrated by the wonderful Angelo Stano too. But I don't think it's ever been translated into English. <SHAME!!!>

Dylan is based facially on Rupert Everett of course, so actually getting him for this movie was quite a coup. Not to mention the fact that he is YUM. :D

This is one of my favourite movies of all time. I love it. It's possibly the world's only goth zombie movie. I love Michael Soavi's work anyway (The Church was great too, and Stagefright), but this is surely his finest hour!!!

Favourite moments are too numerous too mention but the killing of the nurse is one, and the scene with Death is another.

The film is available to buy on DVD from Europe - there's a German edition (Red Edition) and a Spanish edition (both still in English of course.)

OK FIRST OF ALL THIS IS NOT A BAD MOVIE! and if you thought so you just didnt understand it. If your adictied to zombie movis like i am ( true most of them are bad!)
then you would understand in refrence what was going on
from The classic Night where the girl runs in the house and then out side its night for no reason! Cemetary man was based off a comic book although ive never seen it and the movie makes moresense if you pay attention to things like when fransisco falls asleep on the phone and winds up killing every one. its funny beacuse that is the best part of the movie and ill tell you why. you can here the sound fiel of death saying " stop killing the dead there mine." in fact thats not true Cemetary took andvantage of the fact that no one in the movie is really dead. there actors and the zombies have a humanside to them unlike the countless dod clones whe its just masses of brain dean monsters but they are people in rerality. then why have ther been so many sombie movies? beacuse its pretty cool when you get to see hundres of people decapotated in 2 hours. the movie plays with that allot and even the philly zombie genra. fransisco " IM NOT DEAD YET! BITE CANT KILL YOU!"
Ok it might not look at first like the best made film but it was not some huge $$$$$ deal. even so it still has better effects then newer movies (resident evil) which is a good name cuz its an evil movie! But what do you expect from a company who has made the same things over and over again for over 13 years.

This is a brilliant will satisfy gorehounds and fans of intelligent films.

Note: The scene is the hospital (yes, I'm talking about the killing spree) reminds me of American Psycho, but it's even better...

This is a yearly tradition at my house during October.  This film is beautiful to look at...well, except all those dead Returners.  Ha ha!  The Curly look-a-look is exceptional!  When he falls for that girl's head...!  Damn!  Just damn!  I think it goes a little in the wrong direction when he starts killing live people.  But on the other hand, it's unexpected.  And I like "unexpected" in my horror films.  How about that scene in the...well, whatever that place was with all the skulls?  Zombie boy scouts!  Day of the Dead had bizarro stuff like that too!

It is important to mention that Francesco is hot. Hot, hot hot. So there is eye candy for the women (and alternatively living men) out there too. Plus, when you get to the end you get the sense of this almost being a ....great movie!!

Cemetary Man is a good zombie movie, but it just throws all its cards out the window in the end. Let me explain. For the majority of the movie, it's an interesting zombie movie with very interesting characters. All Everet's character is concerned about is reading the phone book and yakking on the phone instead of the walking dead. He just sits there carving X's in bullets and blowing them away without even looking at them. His partner is mentally retarted and has a fixation on the dead girl's zombified head. Fun times. But the problem comes when Death appears and the film does a 180 on us. I'm not saying the last bit in the movie was bad, but the whole serious Jacob's Ladder-ish tone was lost on me.

I love this movie. There are many great quotes, as well as a great soundtrack - "Never Should Have Gone on the Boyscout Picnic" The grim reaper is beyond cool, adn there a couple other great shots. The ending, well to understand the end go back and look closely at the beginning. It actually is somewhat artistic which makes it a good film. now I need to get back to my phone books.

I LOVE this movie. I have seen it time and time again and even have subjected many friends to its gore and humour. In fact its the dark humour that stays with me, to the point that I forget to warn my queasy friends about the gorey parts ( " Look I FORGOT about the ugly guy dressed up as a nun getting "her" face bashed in repeatedly! Honestly!")

It also has this nifty little tune that is played throughout the movie either as background music, Delamorte whistling it, or Gnaghi playing it on his coffin shaped violin. You only get the words once.....sung by the mayor's daughter's head (Before death she thought Gnaghi would make a cute pet....after a terrible accident dealing with her, her boyfriends biker gang and a bus load of boyscouts though she finds herself as a sort of bodiless girlfriend for our poor sloppy Gnaghi).

"There comes a time when death is sad
You're all alone and you feel so bad
To wait again for love to start
To feel the beating of the heart"

I had to rewind that scene three times to get the words........ otherwise I would have never gotten the perky lil tune out of my head.

If you like dark humour, sloppy sidekicks, wonderfully artistic camera shots, zombie blasting action, and some worthwhile nudity then this movie is a MUST!

The girl as some already know is half Itallian-half Swedish actress ANNA FALCHI, known to perveyors of fine girly magazines simply as ANNA FROM HEAVEN!! In case you were wondering- yes, she's had a boob job. And no, she's not available because she spends all her free time dating European princes and other asorted mega rich dudes. (Ain't that a b***h!!) Also, Rupert Everett turned gay after his sex scene with her. What's up with that!!

OK. (One more time...) LOVE this site! "Cemetery Man" is indeed on the same level as "Evil Dead". Play these two movies for your friends who say they don't like gore- they might just convert. My video copy of a Japanese laser disc is quite entertaining (English with Japanese subtitles makes it even more surreal.) I concur that there's so much more in this than meets the eye. Existentialism smexestentialism. Watch it again. The SHADOw of death is in SO many scenes- look hard. As for the ending- I thoroughly enjoyed the plot twists and turns. Seemed like the movie was going to end 4 different times- but it kept going in new & bizarre directions. If you liked this aspect of "Cemetery Man" you absolutely positively MUST see Zulawski's "POSSESSION"!!! Isabella Adjani & Sam Neil in the most F***ed up movie ever released. I watched it 3 nights in a row with an ever growing crowd of friends, and we still don't know what happened. It will twist your mind forever. UNF****ING real!

Just caught the film.  It's decent, but it's definitely one of those films I'm going to have to think about for a few days before I decide whether or not I fully like it.  I was the same way with Cello.  At first, I didn't like it and I got rid of the movie.  A couple weeks later, I suddenly liked it again and could only find the film for twice what I originally paid for it. 

Of course, I still wound up buying it again anyway...

I actually got to see Cemetary Man at a local art house theater during it's extremely limited US run back around 1994 (I think).

I'm so glad that Anchor Bay finally got around to giving it a proper Region 1 DVD release.
