Cemetery Man (1994) Review:

Cemetery Man is by no mean your usual comedy. Instead, I would best qualify it as the splendid mix between the craziness and poesy that you can find in David Lynch’s movies and the dark English humor of films such as Shawn of the Dead or Severance. On top of that, the macabre atmosphere and the colorful characters do remind of a Tim Burton’s movies at times. In any case, Michele Soavi created with Cemetary Man its own proper universe and style.

The story is quite complex. All the elements for a great story are here and the movie take you on an emotional rollercoaster that includes, among others: love, despair, tenderness, and especially friendship. The two main characters are extremely endearing and can’t be forgotten easily, especially the nasty Gnaghi. All this wrapped in a shell of creepiness as the movie is set almost exclusively in a cemetery, with cemetery care-taker, zombies and ghosts as central characters.

As for the comedy aspect of the movie, it is very subtle and does not interfere with the beautiful story, but enhance it instead. It flirts with absurdity many times while never using it as a cheap laugh. I found this movie so well-balanced and I would advise anyone who hasn’t seen it write it as the first choice in their watch list.
