Bio Zombie (1998)

Bio Zombie (1998)

Foreign films are always a fun little experiment to consume. There’s the obvious language barrier, which requires you to watch with either subtitles or, God forbid, a dub.

Dellamorte Dellamore / Cemetery Man (1996)

‘Dellamorte Dellamore’ A.K.A ‘Cemetery Man’ is a somewhat hidden gem of horror cinema, and if Martin Scorsese calls Cemetery Man (1994) one of the best Italian films of the 1990s, then it has to be good, right?
