Spasmo! Spasmo! Spasmo!

Last night a few of us got together to watch Burial Ground: A Night of Terror, a low-budget Italian horror film from 1981. It was one of the creepiest things I have ever seen, not because it was scary (it was not), but because there’s a subplot where a kid tries repeatedly to hook up with his own mother.

What the hell, Italy? What the hell?!

The movie also featured the smartest zombies I have ever seen, ones who (among other things) use battering rams, scythes and throwing knives. In one of the weirder scenes, the entire zombie horde disguises themselves as monks in order to catch prey.

None of this is the point, though. The point is that now, because of this, I’m suddenly the kind of guy who watches obscure, low-budget, foreign horror movies. I’m not sure if I can live with that.

The best thing on the DVD was a trailer for an Italian thriller called “Spasmo”. You really have to watch it yourselves.
