Horror film based on an Italian comic strip. The misanthropic Francesco Dellamorte has retired from the world to tend a small-town cemetery where the dead have begun climbing out of their graves. He copes with this by smashing the zombies' skulls and shooting them between the eyes. A brief affair with a young widow ends disastrously when her dead husband rises from the grave and bites her. Eventually Dellamorte can no longer distinguish between the living and the dead, and becomes a serial killer.
