Audience Reviews for Dellamorte Dellamore (Cemetery Man) (Demons '95) (Of Death, of Love)

  • Nov 07, 2014
    Of Death Of Love is a bizarre black romantic comedy centred on Francisco Dellamorte, who is a local cemetery keeper of haunted graveyard, where corpses come back to live sometimes and prey on the living. Dellamorte fell in love with a beautiful widow but the widow was killed and came back to life. Dellamorte began to break down and started seeing more clones of the lookalikes of the deceased widow. Along with his good friend and a sidekick, he must find out how to become sane again. I chuckled a few times, Rupert Everett was perfect for the leading role. The film is unique yet still preserved the Italian style. The plot could have been a little better if it made sense but I liked the surrealism nonetheless.

    Finally got around to watching "Cemetery Man", which had been hyped to me as a "low budget cult classic", and it's a total disaster. The first 2/3 of the flick operates in the same vein as Peter Jackson's brilliant "Dead Alive", featuring en endearingly detached and overly philosophic Rupert Everett as a cemetery caretaker spending his nights corralling the recently undead back to the afterlife. It is clearly an absurd plot but even so the humor was handled well within the surreal environment and kept things appropriately cheeky. This is all fine until the final half-hour where the story fractures in several directions at once and no longer resembles itself. Don't know what the screenwriter was thinking here, what could have been a satisfying genre flick is only confused and unsure when it matters most.

    Cemetery Man is a fine comedy horror film that is effectively directed by horror master Michele Soavi, who has made his mark in Italian horror by directing La Chiesa (The Church). Soavi crafts yet another memorable horror film that is a very entertaining and is sure to delight zombie film fans. The film has everything that you'd expect from Italian horror films is here, and the film, though not perfect is a must see for genre fans. The film has enough gore and effective genre elements to keep you interested and delivers something amusing on-screen. Cemetery Man is good for what it is, but it is not the best effort from director Soavi, who has made far better pictures in the 80's. As a whole, take this film as a mindless picture that will manages to overcome its imperfections by giving zombie fans plenty of undead carnage on-screen. The plot may be at times lacking, but with a film like this, the zombies are all that matters and Michel Soavi direction gives viewers plenty to enjoy despite its flaws. Cemetery Man is not the greatest of Italian zombie pictures, but it definitely isn't the worst. This film was deemed to be a Comedy horror film; the comedic tone of the film is flat and virtually nonexistent and the film's material has a much darker tone in retrospect. I enjoyed the film, but like I said, Soavi made far better films, but overall this is an underrated film that deserves to be revisited by genre fans. The film is bizarre enough to make it a worthwhile viewing experience. Cemetery Man is a unique zombie offering, one that is sure to delight fans who are looking for good gore and zombie mayhem.

    Surprisingly mature supernatural horror with quite a number of metaphysical, philosophical and thought-provoking topics addressed with a stinking aroma of emotional zombies and other amounts of absurdities, sex and a briefly badass character. This will divide audiences easily as it is very difficult to please them all. People expecting a visually interesting horror with moments of camp fun as <u>complements</u> to the main point shall be highly rewarded. 77/100
