Plot – Spoilers:
The dead are rising from their graves, but Francesco Dellamorte who is in charge of the cemetery isn’t too bothered by them. He even whistles randomly while putting them away with the nearest weapon at hand.
Dellamorte is ably assisted by the gimpy Gnaghi who lives only for little treats like an ice-cream and has charming oddities like puking on women when he gets excited. There’s a rumour going around town that Dellamorte doesn’t have a penis or is at least impotent. But here too, he remains unperturbed by the barbs he faces whenever he walks into town.
It seems like the only thing that can shake Dellamorte’s cool strut is the arrival of a big-tittied widow. She plays the grieving widow role initially, rebuffing Dellamorte’s advances, but is titillated when he mentions that the cemetery also houses an ossuary with its perfect erotic charms…
Cemetery Man has some truly memorable and hilarious moments and deserves the cult status it has since acquired.
