This movie is based on a novel of Tiziano Sclavi, and it always reflects the "sclavian philosophy" diffused by the most succesful comics in Italy: Dylan Dog, the detective of the nightmare. There is the duality between love and dead (in Italian "dellamore" means "of love" and "dellamorte" means "of death"), a duality that Dellamorte feels in a really hard way. He is the guardian of the cemetery of Buffalora, a little town in the north of Italy, in which, we don't know why, corpses rise from tombs and Dellamorte has to destroy them. Dellamorte seems not to ask to himself why this happen, he shoots and loves. But at the end he wants to leave Buffalora... Written by

The ossuary (a crypt for bones) that was used in the film was quite real. Supposedly one of the crew members removed some of the bones from the ossuary during filming, but quickly replaced them the next day claiming to have encountered an angry ghost following the removal of the bones. See more »

One of the most incredible and overlooked films ever made.
Dellamorte Dellamore (aka Cemetery Man) is one of those ingenious, creative movies that appear once in a blue moon and is virtually unrecognized. It tells the story of a cemetery caretaker's troubled life and descent into madness, while at the same time, trying to rid himself of the zombies that rise from the ground after burial. Featuring Rupert Everett giving one of the best performances in cinematic history, Dellamorte Dellamore is a unique blend of humor, horror, and romance into a gothic art-house flick. This movie is proof that American film-makers have a lot to learn.
