Great horror films are like zombies – the best ones always come back. On Tuesday, June 13th, Anchor Bay Entertainment, an IDT Entertainment company, will release the eagerly-awaited U.S. DVD premiere of Cemetery Man (aka Dellamorte Dellamore) for the suggested retail price of $19.98.
Cemetery Man is one of the most requested horror titles of the last decade, and is revered by consumers and industry critics alike. Anchor Bay plans to honor the film by releasing the DVD with a new anamorphic widescreen transfer.
Directed by Michele Soavi, Cemetery Man stars Rupert Everett (My Best Friend’s Wedding and the voice of Prince Charming in Shrek 2) as Francesco Dellamore - a cemetery caretaker who finds that his seemingly dead-end job has recently become a little harder.
Along with his sidekick Gnaghi (Francois Hadji-Lazaro), Francesco spends his days interning corpses and his nights killing “returners” – those who have risen from their grave seven days after burial. Life changes for Francesco when he falls for a beautiful, mysterious widow (Anna Falchi). When fate intervenes, Francesco must choose between Love Eternal and the Living Dead.
Ever since its release in 1994, Cemetery Man has shocked and tickled with its unique balance of the macabre and the comical. Anchor Bay Entertainment dug deep to find bonus features worthy of the film’s reputation, including:
Widescreen Presentation (1.66:1), enhanced for 16x9 TVs
Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound
Death is Beautiful: The Making of Cemetery Man featuring all-new cast and crew interviews including director Michele Soavi, star Anna Falchi and more
