Zombies in The D (as well as FCG, the off shoot of MPM) – Burial Ground
This classic Italian Zombie flick is one of the finest time wasters ever – Professor unleashes an army of Zombies, kills the Professor and waits for anyone to enter their domain nearby. A group of people party at a house in the area and soon the Zombie attack begins. It’s got the basics plus Peter Bark, the midget who seriously is excellent in an over the top role that concludes with a memorable breast feeding scene you don’t want to miss.
Andrea Bianchi (Strip Nude For Your Killer) Directs the madness.
