An undisputed Italian zombie classic!

I have seen this film many times and it NEVER ceases to amaze me.

This movie, known as "Nights Of Terror" is one of the goriest and yet fun films I have ever seen. A professor accidentally raises the rotting dead and the quickly make a meal out of him.

Seven people arrive at his villa for a weekend of fun and suddenly find themselves being attacked by many, many rotting corpses. The gut munching is well done and when the zombies are hit in the head or body they gush green slime stuff the sound effects make it even more gross.

These zombies also know how to throw knives, use battering rams and power tools!!. One by one the characters are killed in very gruesome ways.

The Blu-ray presentation from Shriek Show is excellent and the colors are vibrant. However, when anyone talks about this film is focuses on Peter Bark, the young (I believe he was 26 when this was made) boy who in the film is actually supposed to be about 10 or 11 years old. His incestuous lust for his beautiful mother makes for some disturbing viewing.

When I first saw the film on VHS back in the 80's I just couldn't believe what I was seeing. Bark does a good job don't get me wrong, but his feeling up his mother and then in a later scene, after he has been turned into a zombie sucking and then biting his mothers breast are two of the most mind boggling images I have ever witnessed.

This Italian shocker works on ever level and is simply a MUST for zombie movie fans. There will never be another film like Burial Ground. The Blu-ray is well worth adding to your collection.
