Storyline

Professor Ayres discovers a secret in an ancient stone and when he opens a crypt, he revives zombies that kill him. He had invited three couples to visit him in his manor to reveal his discovery. However, they never get around to meeting the professor. Out of the blue, the zombies attack them and they seek shelter in the mansion. The creatures put the manor under siege while they protect themselves trying to survive to the horde of zombies. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

best movie ever!
7 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

this is definitely my favorite zombie movie! it's really unfortunate that it is so hard to find and it goes by so many different names. i rented it first as "zombie 3", but i purchased it under the title "burial ground", i believe that it also goes by it's original Italian title "le notti del terrore" (the night of terror). if you are a fan of b-horror movies and zombie flicks (romero included) this movie is definitely worth the work to track down and own! i love you peter bark! i don't know what else to say about this movie other than OWN IT, and i think it is absurd that i have to type exactly 10 lines in order for my comment to be posted.
