Michele Soavi, one of the Italian horror greats, whose career was tragically cut short. He made three masterpieces of grand guignol cinema that heavily doff their bloody hats to Argento, but also have a delirious identity all their own: LA CHIESA (aka DEMONS 3), THE SECT and this, Cemetery Man aka Dellamorte Dellamore. This is his most poetic and classical, and his most original. Rupert Everett makes a delicious leading man who in effect is our Ash 'Evil Dead' Williams, an eccentric kook who falls head over heels with a stunning mourner, who he quite literally mourns for himself when he accidentally offs her! Stories like this don't come along very often, especially with a budget and with out-there visuals. A rare classic.
