Dont expect much of a plot. It meanders like crazy in the typical 70s fashion. It's a real grower.

I watched it with my old man when I was a kid (well, about twelve anyway). I remember little bits and pieces, but not much else.




BURIAL GROUND
(1981)
aka Nights of Terror
aka Zombie Horror
aka The Zombie Dead

Image

A group of permanently horny "jet-setters" (well, that's what the VHS sleeve says anyway) stay in an old mansion to have lots of sex but get interrupted by zombies instead.

Also known, like at least two or three more other completely unrelated films, as Zombi 3, Burial Ground is basically ninety or so minutes of screaming and running away from slow moving actors with plasticine on their faces. Or masks. Or with plasticine on their masks.

Right from the moment an impressively bearded professor wakes up some zombies and seems genuinely surprised they want to kill him ("But... I'm your friend!") to the final scene which cuts off halfway through because they probably didn't have any money left to finish it, Burial Ground is cheap, stupid, badly dubbed Italian fun.

Gino (Piranha 2, Cannibal Ferox) De Rossi's gore effects are pretty good, but the star of the show has to be twenty-five year old actor, Peter Bark, who because of laws restricting children from appearing in certain types of horror films, plays a ten year old boy who fancies his own mum.

One of those zombie films where the slow moving, shambling undead always seem to catch up with their far more agile prey within seconds, the creatures also appear to be considerably more intelligent than the small cast of hopeless morons who run around in circles doing the exact opposite of what any even remotely intelligent person would do. Oh, and the twenty-five year old ten year old ends up biting off his own mother's tit.

Recently done

To Live and Die in L.A.
Blood and Black Lace
The Bird with the Crystal Plumage
Opera
Cocoon
The Holiday
Le Samouraï

Le Samouraï in particular stood out to me. I really liked it a lot.

Cocoon surprised me. I only really did it because it came out in' 85, and Eureka recently put their name to it. It seems to get look warm reviews, but I enjoyed it.

Justice league is not good.

Not good at all.

Gal Gadot still looks lovely looking like she's working really hard to act like a piece of tremendously attractive wood.

The soundtrack is shite, the script is shite.



^ that video > the whole movie in its entirety.

I've been waiting forever for Le Samourai to be available on Region 4. Ditto Five Easy Pieces.

Have had a love/hate relationship with To Live And Die...for many a year. So near and yet so far.

Bird With The Crystal is ok. Just ok.

A good friend of mine saw it last weekend and had nothing good to say about it. And this was the same guy who defended Suicide Squad to the death.

Buy the region 2/B version, it'll play in Australia. There's a BR/DVD combo pack on Amazon.

A Cry In The Dark.

Not seen this in years, thought it was time for a revisit. Movie based on the Azaria Chamberlain incident. Meryl Streep was great, as was Sam Neil. Not sure about their choice of wigs though...
