This is the best Italian zombie movie of the 90’s. Rupert (My Best Friend’s Wedding) Everett stars as a caretaker for a ramshackle cemetery where the dead come back to life after seven days. Since he would lose his job if anyone found out about the zombies (or “Returners”) he takes to shooting them in the head and reburying them with the help of his bald mute assistant (who keeps his true love’s severed head alive in his television). Director Michele (Stagefright) Soavi’s macabre humor and Everett’s deadpan performance make this a classic. Any movie that features zombie Boy Scouts, nuns and bikers (that come out of the ground on their Harley) is an automatic must see.
