Dellamorte Dellamore– aka Cemetery Man – is a 1994 comedy horror film directed by Michele Soavi. An Italian-French-German co-production, the screenplay by Gianni Romoli was based on the 1991 novel by Tiziano Sclavi. Sclavi is also the author of the comic Dylan Dog, which covers similar themes and whose protagonist is self-evidently a Rupert Everett lookalike.

The film stars Rupert Everett, François Hadji-Lazaro, and Anna Falchi. The story concerns the beleaguered caretaker of a small Italian cemetery, who searches for love while defending the town from zombies…

The film was released in Italy to little success. United States distributor October Films changed its title to Cemetery Man and saddled the film with a campy ad campaign, finally releasing it on April 26, 1996.

In the US, Cemetery Man received mostly negative critical reaction, small theatrical distribution (opening on six screens), and a frequently delayed Region 1 DVD release.

The film missed popular…

Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers is a 1988 American comedy horror film directed by Fred Olen Ray (The Alien Dead, Evil Toons), and starring Gunnar Hansen (The Texas Chain Saw Massacre), Linnea Quigley, Jay Richardson and Michelle Bauer. It cost around $60,000 to produce.

Incredibly, over-zealous censors decreed that the UK 1980s video release was not allowed to use the word Chainsaw in its title, so the film was released simply as ‘Hollywood Hookers’ with the word ‘Chainsaw’ replaced by the outline of the offending power tool!

When private detective Jack Chandler (Jay Richardson) tries to track down a teenage runaway (Linnea Quigley), he runs into a cult of Egyptian chainsaw-worshipping prostitutes led by “The Master” (Gunnar Hansen—Leatherface from the original The Texas Chain Saw Massacre).

Fascination

Before it actually fascinates. Fascination serves merely to titillate. In fact, the first half of this film is an increasingly frustrating experience. All the dialogue about what is going to happen later intercut with softcore sex scenes. The two female leads are both very attractive and play their parts well, but we start to lose interest when the narrative slows to a crawl.

Luckily, something wonderful happens at the half way point. Almost instantly the sexual aspects of the film are dropped and a sequence of  violence changes the whole direction of the film. This sequence is not particularly brutal or grotesque, but rather is done so well and feels earned that the viewer becomes enthralled with the story and changes happening with the major characters. Now new characters are introduced and new themes as well. Where before sex was titillation of both characters and audience, it is now portrayed as…
