Halloween White Elephant: Cemetery Man (1994)

Posted by:

From Peter Hall–“Quite simply one of the best horror movies of the ’90s.  Sure, it’s not a straight scary movie, but it has a whimsical sense of the macabre that is impossible to not fall in love with.  Style aside, it’s also just a very unique zombie film that doesn’t treat the undead like an abominable plague, but more like a comedic pestilence that one poor schlub has to deal with.”

A funny story about this White Elephant series and Peter’s assignment of this film to me is that Cemetery Man has been assigned to me before. Well, not really assigned, but our very own Brian Kelley very generously lent me his out-of-print DVD as a recommended companion piece to Dylan Dog: Dead of Night when it was released in theaters. I don’t know if it would have made Dylan Dog any better (probably not), but now that I’ve finally gotten the chance to see it, I’m even more grateful for this series as it has exposed me to a uniquely fantastic film in Cemetery Man aka Dellamorte Dellamore.
