Rupert Everett is a zombie slayer

What ’s more improbable? Rupert Everett starring in a zombie flick, or that Martin Scorsese reckoned this was one of the best Italian movies of the ’90s? Loosely based on the graphic novel Dylan Dog, Michele Soavi’s comedyhorror is also a touching necrophiliac love story.

Everett’s cemetery caretaker first falls for a buxom siren known only as ‘She’ (Anna Falchi), then falls apart after she turns into zombie chow. “It’s not about the fear of dying,” says Soavi on the yak track. “It’s about the fear of living.”

One of zombie cinema’s true originals.
