C&L's Sat Nite Chiller Theater: 'Cemetery Man' (1994)

An gory, funny, unfunny, who knows what sort f zombie movie.

Michele Soavi, learned his craft from the great Dario Argento and Lamerto Bava and finally broke through as a director with his 1987 film Stage Fright that did poorly in Italy, but very well internationally.

In 1994 he released Cemetery Man which did pretty good in the US.

The AV Club writes:

Usually, comedy and horror are mutually exclusive; it's hard to stay scared while giggling. The difficulty of that combination may explain the nearly worldwide flop of 1994's Cemetery Man, an uncharacteristically funny zombie movie from Dario Argento apprentice Michele Soavi. The film (originally titled Dellamorte Dellamore) found an audience in Soavi's native Italy, but floundered everywhere else, rejected as too funny, too bloody, or both. But it's enjoyed a lively underground following in America, with good reason; few films have tried so enthusiastically to fuse horror and humor, while still saying something about life.
