BURIAL GROUND (1981)

"You look just like a little whore, but I like that in a girl."

This is easily the world's strangest, batshit-crazy zombie flick and it is just chock full of inexplicable moments that leave you scratching your head and for me that makes this one of the most re-watchable of any of the living dead flicks.  I first came across this lovely cinematic treat back in the VHS days and had no idea of the bizarre  spectacle that I would be viewing.  The main oddity on display is an odd little man playing the role of a little boy named Michael.  If just the appearance of a miniature Dario Argento-looking fellow, with a  terribly fake dubbed-in voice of an obvious adult trying to sound like a child, isn't weird enough for you he also spends most of his screen time lusting after his mother's tits which isn't something you will find in something like NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD.  Besides this little nightmare-inducing chap you also get a professor trying to make friends with the shambling rotting corpses, pretty intelligent zombies that make a battering ram, use a power-saw and throw spikes and use all kinds of weapons.  There's also tons of gore, a head gets slowly sliced off with a sickle, a boobs gets bitten off(in fact the show-stopping scene has to be when the creep-o kid turns into a zombie and his mom decides that would be a good time to breastfeed him!?), there's eye violence, lots of zombies get their paper-mache heads smashed in etc, etc. It's pretty much exactly what you want from an Italian zombie flick of the 80's, sex and extreme violence. Also the movie ends with a quote that has a couple of misspellings in it that just hammers home the idea that this is a really dumb movie! There's not much to dislike about this film unless, of course, you're some kind of fancy-pants who only watches "good" movies and then you're probably pretty boring anyway.I've actually seen this one a few times on the big screen and it is a great film to watch in a theater with a bunch of unruly drunks. I even got to see it a few years back as part of an all-night horror marathon and it definitely was the highlight of that night.  Good times!  
A.K.A. THE NIGHTS Of TERROR



This plays more like a highlight reel than any kind of a real trailer:
