BURIAL GROUND: THE NIGHTS OF TERROR (1981)

Zombies attack a group of people vacationing at a secluded country estate. The End.

I'm not sure why, but I kinda like this movie and have actually seen it a number of times. One of the most entertaining things about it is all of the humans when they see a zombie literally stop moving and just stand there screaming until the zombies sloooooowly shuffle over and kill them. It's like the zombies have some kind of telepathic freeze ray or something. Any normal, halfway athletic guy with a aluminum baseball bat could kill every zombie in this movie with barely breaking a sweat, because they are the superslow kind that literally take two minutes to walk across a room.

Another weird thing about BURIAL GROUND is there's a character in the film that's suppose to be a young boy, but for whatever bizarre reason he's played by a 26-year-old midget creature and to make things even worse is he has the hots for his own mother! WTF? He spies on her having sex, tries to rub her pussy and even at one point starts licking her exposed nipple!!!!! It's beyond creepy.

In the grand scheme of things it's not really a good movie, but I like it and it would make a great double feature with 1974's LET SLEEPING CORPSES LIE. Respectable amount of middle-aged female nudity, plenty of slow moving zombies, really stupid humans, son/mother incest, leg caught in trap while fleeing zombies, zombies using tools, nice amount of blood and gore, no CGI. If you like the older Italian zombie movies then I say check it out. A shitty, but fun movie.
