More irresistible zombie trash
BURIAL GROUND: THE NIGHTS OF TERROR (1980) *** Karin Well, Gianluigi Chirizzi, Simone Mattioli. As any fan of the genre knows, there are only two plots in zombie movies. One is where humans bring the zombies to life, either intentionally or unintentionally, through evil scientific experiments or toxic chemical spills. The other is where someone unwittingly summons or awakens the dead, as in this film. Here, an archaeologist goes poking around in an ancient Etruscan tomb, and after banging his hammer on one of the walls a few times, the place is suddenly lousy with hungry, flesh-eating zombies. In the film's most notorious scene, "little" Michael (played by twenty-something actor Peter Bark) decides to make a move on his own mother (Mariangela Giordano). Thankfully, mom shoots him down, but when the boy later becomes a zombie (you saw that coming, right?), he lives out his incestuous fantasies in a most peculiar way. You'll have to see it to believe it. Burial Ground is one of the more entertaining zombie films.
