CEMETERY MAN (1994) this weekend at Facets!

Facets Night School presents...

Cemetery Man (aka Dellamorte Dellamore) (1994) : The Last of the Great Italian Zombie Knock-Offs

This Weekend!
Saturday, August 29th at MIDNIGHT!

Join Facets Night School as we unearth Michele Soavi's unsung Italian zombie flick, Cemetery Man. Lecture, screening, discussion--only $5!!

Rupert Everett stars in this 1994 horror-comedy, based on the best-selling novel by Tiziano Sclavias, as a hapless groundskeeper who has a cemetery full of vengeful dead who won't stay dead, including the woman he loves.

Facets staffer Patrick Ogle examines this acclaimed, though oft-overlooked, zombie fave, digging into symbiotics, symbols and signs of the living dead, and how the film falls into the great Italian horror tradition.
