Italian horror master Michele Soavi (Stage Fright) directs this brilliantly bloody black comedy.
Rupert Everett stars as Francesco Dellamorte, a cemetery watchman whose job is to slaughter the living dead when they rise hungry from their graves. But following a tragic tryst with a lusty young widow (Anna Falchi), Francisco begins to ponder the mysteries of existence. Is there long-term satisfaction in blasting the skulls of "returners"? And if death is the ultimate act of love, can a psychotic killing spree send Dellamorte to the brink of enlightenment?
