Sergio Stivaletti was one of the many guests at the Weekend of Horrors event in Los Angeles. I had the fortunate chance to sit down with Italy's FX vet to discuss his career as well as the future. Our full interview is arriving in a future edition of Choice Cuts , but I thought I'd pull this snippet in which he talks about a sequel to Michele Soavi's Cemetery Man . It was revealed at the start of the year that Soavi was scripting a new chapter in the life of Francesco Dellamorte. And since Stivaletti was responsible for the FX on the first film, we knew he might have a sequel progress report for us. »
Screen Rant’s Ben Kendrick reviews Dylan Dog: Dead of Night
The 2011 summer blockbuster movie season is packed with comic book adaptations: Thor, X-Men: First Class, Priest, Captain America: The First Avenger, and Green Lantern. However, in a film-scape loaded with familiar comic properties, a lesser-known hero has already hit the big screen this summer: paranormal investigator Dylan Dog. Dylan Dog: Dead of Night isn’t the first cinematic interpretation of the Dylan Dog universe. In 1994 director Michele Soavi filmed Dellamorte Dellamore starring Rupert Everett as Francesco Dellamorte (a side character in the Italian comic series) who dressed in the iconic Dylan Dog outfit – though the titular lead never appeared in the film.

Just when you think you're suffering from zombie fatigue, another project comes along to get you excited again. If you thought The Walking Dead might be the last word on the genre, think on. Fangoria has a scoop that Michele Soavi is working on a sequel to Dellamorte Dellamore (aka Cemetery Man), his bonkers Italian comedy horror first released in 1994.Based on a novel by Dylan Dog creator Tiziano Sclavi, Dellamorte Dellamore stars Rupert Everett as cemetery caretaker Francesco, trying to stay on top of his paperwork while keeping the frequently rising undead from overrunning his town; obsessively pursuing a succession of women, all played by Anna Falci, who resemble his lost love (whom he shot, twice, once by mistake and once as a zombie); and fending off job offers from the Grim Reaper.It did poorly on release, but has built up a cult following over time and has »

One of the coolest and somewhat unknown foreign films from 1994 titled Cemetery Man might be getting its long awaited sequel. The part zombie, part supernatural, all insane horror film starring a young Rupert Everett is considered a cult classic and definitely one to check out if you haven't seen it yet.
According to Fangoria, Luigi Cozzi stated that he recently heard from the Cemetery Man writer-director Michele Soavi. According to Cozzi, "Michele has told me that he has started to write the script for a special horror project he plans to shoot between the end of 2011 and the beginning of 2012: a sequel to his Gothic masterpiece Dellamorte Dellamore, a.k.a. Cemetery Man. He's going to produce it himself and wants it to really be a great, strong, shocking Italian horror movie."
It would be sweet to see Everett resume his role as the cemetery caretaker Francesco Dellamorte. »
There are a few cult movies that should be viewed by any true genre fan, and Dellamorte Dellamore (aka Cemetery Man) is on that list. At least for anyone interested in zombies, Euro weirdness, and the spectacular nakedness of Anna Falchi. The 1994 original from director Michele Soavi starred Rupert Everett as Francesco Dellamorte, a graveyard attendant in a sleepy Italian town where the corpses don't stay in the ground. He finds love in the drool-inducing form of a mysterious woman, but »

The beloved 1994 Italian cult horror film Dellamorte Dellamore may be getting a sequel. Luigi Cozzi spoke to Fangoria and said he recently heard from Dellamorte writer-director Michele Soavi. Says Cozzi, "Michele has told me that he has started to write the script for a special horror project he plans to shoot between the end of 2011 and the beginning of 2012: a sequel to his Gothic masterpiece Dellamorte Dellamore, a.k.a.
