best movie ever!, 7 July 2006
Author: tanachke from United States

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.
