Dellamorte Dellamore (Cemetery Man) (Demons '95) (Of Death, of Love) (1996)

The film leans into modern comedy, but it also passes through moments of genuine longing and even existential crisis.

Its appeal is mostly to an audience that can appreciate its gross-out camp humor and can overlook that it's a pointless exercise.

Like Shaun of the Dead as rewritten by Eugène Ionesco.... Has the surface qualities of a spoof, but none of its comfy core.
