Cemetery Man

Synopsis: This movie is based on a novel of Tiziano Sclavi, and it always reflects the "sclavian philosophy" diffused by the most succesful comics in Italy: Dylan Dog, the detective of the nightmare. There is the duality between love and dead (in Italian "dellamore" means "of love" and "dellamorte" means "of death"), a duality that Dellamorte feels in a really hard way. He is the guardian of the cemetery of Buffalora, a little town in the north of Italy, in which, we don't know why, corpses rise from tombs and Dellamorte has to destroy them. Dellamorte seems not to ask to himself why this happen, he shoots and loves. But at the end he wants to leave Buffalora...

One M3 form!

Going to get our willies wet tonight?

Some of us, yeah.

Hell, at a certain point

in life, you realize

you know more dead people than living.

Sorry about the other day, I was

a bit crass. I didn't mean to be.

My name's Francesco Dellamorte.

You know, this is the

only job I could get

even with a degree in biology.

Anyway we all end up here

sooner or later, don't we?

I've got a great little

house... Want to see it?

I don't live alone, I've

got a helper, Gnaghi.

He's a real conversationist!

The cemetery's small, but

it's got a marvellous ossuary!

An ossuary...

I have never seen anything so...


Neither have I.

It's like in my dreams!

This is my dream.

I couldn't ask for anything more.

Me neither.

You know, you've got

a real nice ossuary.


You will allow me to return, won't you?

You will allow me to kiss

you just once, won't you?


Not like this.

Like this.

I must be faithful to

the memory of my husband!

I can't. I can't!

It's not my fault... It's this place.

I feel strange tremors.

It's not the cold...

I'm not afraid...

This place wants me to...

It's forcing me to...

I don't want to!

I don't want to!

I can't! I can't!

Don't be afraid, it's just ignis fatuus.

Why here?

Why on your poor husband's grave?

I've never kept anything from him...

We trusted each other implicitly.

He would have liked to know.

Well, if that's the case...

All these lights!

Let them watch.

What's better than watching

two lovers making love, hey?

Just to have a bit of privacy.

Sorry, but the lady wants stars only.

It's never been like

this before, with anybody.

Only you.

No one will ever make us part.

Gnaghi! The gun!

I can explain! Listen to me,

you've always been so understanding!

That's life!

It's nothing my love,
