Warped & Faded: Weird Wednesday and the Birth of AGFA

Burial Ground

Opens Nov 24, 2021

In honor of two decades of anarchic preservation, we present a selection of films that lit a fire — lovingly restored by the American Genre Film Archive themselves.


Simply one of the funnest brain-dead, plot-free, shock-driven Italian zombie maggotstorms, Burial Ground is also a traditional Italian fairy tale about a castle and a manchild who lusts after his mother.

Psychosexual sleaze maestro Andrea Bianchi unleashes enough flesh-ripping, gut-chomping and depraved Oedipal mayhem to set insane new standards: Mariangela Giordano stars in the splatter classic about a cursed country estate besieged by horny houseguests, undead Etruscans and the unusual relationship between mother and son.

"If you just want a film that says 'f*** it, here's zombies' and then proceeds to chuck as much madness at your eyes as possible, then you can't go wrong with this one."
