Dellamorte Dellamore (1994)
Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database
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...
Zombies, guns, and sex, OH MY!!!

- Zombies, guns, and sex, OH MY!!!
- Valentina Scanarotti: With your consent, I'd like to marry Gnaghi. Mayor Scanarotti: This - horrible - thing? Valentina Scanarotti: I'm not such a great catch either, Daddy. Mayor Scanarotti: Not as long, dear, as I've got a breath in my body. Valentina Scanarotti: All right. We'll fix that right away.
[Francesco almost runs over a bicyclist] Francesco Dellamorte: Don't worry, I'll get the next one.
Francesco Dellamore: Death, Death, Death, the whore.
Francesco Dellamorte: I'd give my life to be dead.
Francesco Dellamorte: You and I are both the same. We kill out of indifference, out of love sometimes, but never out of hate. Now I don't know who's dead or alive. I'm sick of killing. So I'm leaving the game, Brother.
- According to Director Michele Soavi, The "returners" get their energy from the Mandragola roots in the cemetery.
Tangerine Dream was originally supposed to do the soundtrack, but something else came up.
An American company was willing to fund and distribute the movie if 'Matt Dillon' was cast as Francesco.
When Francesco and "She" are kissing in the crypt with the shroud over their heads, the shot mimics the painting "The Lovers" by Rene Magritte.
The sets for the cemetery in the film were built upon actual abandoned cemetery grounds in Italy.
