Illusions Unltd - Burial Ground Media Book

Collection Number: #443


Director Andrea Bianchi might not be as well known as the Fulci's and Lenzi's of the world, but one thing is for certain;  The man knew how to helm a sleazy movie.  Burial Ground is one of my favorite bad Zombie movies.  Much like Nightmare City it's hard to pin down one solid thing that makes this flick stand out.  Rather, it's a nice mix of Peter Bark, oatmeal zombies, pacing, and just general awkwardness that really makes this one totally enjoyable.  


Like a majority of German Mediabook releases, Burial Ground has two cover options. 



While this is clearly a German set, as there are no real essays featured in the book I think it's safe to say it's pretty English friendly.  Each page features photographs of various posters and promotional pictures.




After a rather lackluster release from Shriek Show, many hoped this release would feature a superior print.  Sadly that was not the case and this releases's PQ is near identical to the Media Blasters blu-ray.  


While each cover was limited to 1,000, as you can see this is not a numbered set.  With the US Burial Ground release currently $4 bucks at most Frys stores, this Mediabook is only recommended for the depraved!  For fan's of the film it's a very nice collectible and happens to be one of my favorite Mediabook releases of 2013.
