    A professor with an interest in ancient death rites invites three couples - one bringing with them a strange man-child called Michael - to spend some time in a lovely, old Italian villa. Unfortunately the professor himself ends up being killed by ancient Etruscans before being able to greet his guests. This does not seem to bother the visitors too much, however, as they soon embark upon a mission to have sex in every corner of the entire estate. Not putting up with this desecration of their ancient burial grounds - or perhaps with a desire to join in on the action - the Etruscan zombies leave their tombs and begin to hunt down the poor unsuspecting visitors. Gore ensues. With the exception of the few zombies that looked more like they had died a bit over two weeks ago instead of well over two thousand years ago, the zombies were exceptionally well executed.

    Damn good Italian Zombie flick. Not much to say as far as plot goes. Very simple and comparable to Night of the Living Dead. The make up effects were delightfully repulsive. Solid gore. Atrocious dubs. Beautiful Italian women. A manchild and his incestuous relationship with his mother. Worms and maggots. Boobies. Dope soundtrack. Zombies so sloooooow their barely moving. Great sense of atmosphere. Slow motion and extreme close ups. Yup. A lot to enjoy here. Solid genre flick for sure.

    Here's what's wrong with this picture: goofy zombies whose mouths don't seem to open yet can eat people, a 30-year-old playing a 10-year-old boy, incest, misogynistic, and a lot like Fulci's 'Zombi'. However, this film cast a spell on me for its trashy gore scenes, a bizarre incestuous scene you won't forget, the goofy zombi's are cool at the same time, and most appealing is the gothic atmospherics and setting. There is no plot but the time it would take to explain anything or develop a single character, 'Burial Ground' was too busy saturating the viewer with needless sex scenes and tons of zombies - who can complain? Perhaps only for fans of sleazy Italian horror films low on plot and heavy on atmosphere.

    In actuality this movie isn't really that good. The acting is horrible (the reaction shots of these actors are priceless), the characters are so idiotic that the scariest thing in this movie is the thought of having to be in this situation with people this stupid, some of the zombies look like they used paper mache instead of make-up, and the plot is nothing original (when there's a plot to follow, that is). This movie is more like an experiment in sleaze. It's the type of movie that you watch for a cheap thrill, not for any artistic reason. But if cheap thrills are all you're looking for then this movie should hold you over for a while. There are plenty of graphically violent deaths (the nipple biting scene being my particular favorite), a couple of titties (pretty much a given in Italian zombie films), a guy who plays a twelve year old who looks like Dario Argento if The Tall Man from Phantasm got a hold of him and shrunk him down into one of those little dwarf things, and even a little bit of incest. You also get the added bonus of classy lines such as, "You look just like a little whore, but I like that in a girl", or "You're getting a raise out of me alright, but it has nothing to do with money". And did I mention how stupid the characters are? Seriously, I've seen some dumb groups of people in horror movies, but these have got to be some of the most comically stupid people I've ever come across. So if you're like me and need at least a monthly dose of sleazy exploitation you could do a lot worse (you could also do a lot better, but that's beside the point).
