FINAL GIRL explores the slasher flicks of the '70s and '80s...and all the other horror movies I feel like talking about, too. This is life on the EDGE...beware yon spoilers!

The Pick

Film Club picking time, hooray! This one was a no-brainer...or should I say, an edible-brainer?

No, I shouldn't say that. It makes no sense. Anyway. Ladies, gentlemen, and "others", I give you movie #28 (holy crap!) for the Final Girl Film Club:

BURIAL GROUND: THE NIGHTS OF TERROR

Between all this talk of zombies yesterday and the fact that Burial Ground was the far and away winner in my recent "Hey, what should I watch?" informal poll-o-rama, it's the natural choice...and I am a natural woman, so there you go.

Well, technically I only feel like a natural woman, but I suppose that's good enough for now.

Folks, get ready for some super-mad, super-gross, super-makes-no-sense Italian zombie action from director Andrea Bianchi. I can't wait! Even the trailer is grody TO THE MAX.



WOO HOO I SAY. Netflixers can pick up the movie here. The rest of you will have to undertake your own arduous journeys to obtain the film. Be strong, my friends!

The film: Burial Ground: The Nights of Terror
The due date: Monday, July 6

Yes, I realize that's a long ways away, but the end of June is wack for me, so there.

The phrase "Grody TO THE MAX" just made my heart feel all warm. I'm not sure what that means, but I think it means awesome.

The Inevitable Zombie Apocalypse said...

This is so awesome, especially since I have already planned to watch this film on June 15 as part of my second annual Zombie Movie Marathon Month.

Ha! I just watched this a couple of weeks ago during an Italian zombie movie binge.

Awesome!

Admit it...it's us kids in the comments section who make you feel like a natural woman. ;)

I'm in!

One of my very favortie bad Italian zombie films. Great choice! Question: Can I be a lazy blogger and just send you an archived review of the movie I did a year ago for my blog? I've seen the movie at least three times...I don't know if I can endure another viewing (or rather, I don't know if I can find anything new to say about it that I already haven't said...).

Anyway, looking forward to everyone's submissions.

Dan said...

Anyone notice they don't spell "Nights" right in the quote that appears in the beginning?

Stacie Ponder said...

Kevin, that's no prob...just be sure to add a link to me or my film club review somewhere in there!

I can't wait for farm implement-wielding, oatmeal-faced zombies!

Kevin J. Olson said...

Sounds good Stacie.

Dan: Also, at the end of the film when the filmmakers put the too-big-for-the-screen quote up, there are all kinds of errors. Which only cements the film's awesomeness.

Fox said...

Anyway. Ladies, gentlemen, and "others"...

It's nice to know that some bloggers out there are looking out for us trannies. Thanks, Stacie!

I'm gonna get back on track with the Final Girl film club and join in with this one. Yay!

John said...

the "kid" and his mom are the best parts of the movie. enjoy.

Stacie Ponder said...

Much like Icy Spicy Leoncie, I welcome all into my magical busty clutches.

It'll be good to have you back, Fox!

Man, that poster is BITCHIN'...

B.E. Earl said...

Every time you mention Leoncie, a kitten dies. And I spend a half hour on Youtube watching her videos.

Marc Patterson said...

Oh - I'm so in on this one! I just pulled this from the library. And thanks for the extension since the entire month of June is whack for me!

Robson said...

Crazy zombie gore + alternately batshit and soothing analog synth soundtrack is always an equation for quality cinema. I will look for this film!

Jo said...

Graaah I'm not sure I can do this one! It's not on LOVEFiLM... Will have to do some searchin'.

TimTE01 said...

Oddly enough, I did this movie last month. That was before I even knew about your site.

I think it's a pretty good one. I may be a bit biased.

adrien said...

Those are the most awesome looking zombies I've ever seen! The weird electronic music on the trailer is petty cool, too.

Drew said...

I love how's she's gently prodding the zombies away--IN TERROR!--around 2:35-ish. But those are some freaky zombies! It looks like what actual corpses would look like, you would think. I'll have to check it out!

porkhead said...

Aha, I just found myself a copy. Unfortunately it doesn't appear to have any subtitles; so we shall have to see how much sense I can make from the thing.

Hope you don't mind if my relatively new blogsite joins in on the Flim Club goodness...
