I think graveyards are completely groovy. When I was a teen I hung out in them all the time, and it wasn't because I was emo - it was because it was an awesome place to be. All throughout my youth I could be found in our local town cemetery, spending many a night hiding behind tombstones, walking the paths, and perhaps looking for ghosts.
While the following list does take us to cemeteries in film, I'm focused more on the actual grave here. Atmospheric cemetery shots are just another list waiting to happen, I think!
|Dellamorte Dellamore (Cemetery Man)|
Don't we all have someone we lost that we'd like to have back?
|Evil Dead II: Dead by Dawn|
Oh Ash, they never stay dead when you want them to!
One of my most favorite graveyard moments.
|Creepshow (Something to tide you over)|
How long can you hold your breath?
"Whose grave is it?" .... "Judith Myers." .... "He came home."
|Drag me to Hell|
And it had to rain, right??
|Creepshow (Father's Day)|
Hoping for a chocolate double layer with sprinkles.
Always wondered how the Gill Man stayed out of water that long...
|Friday the 13th, Part VI: Jason Lives|
Seriously? They lost me at Part III.
The Hessian has a few compound fractures there, I think...
Is there a better ending in horror? Is there!?
|Bram Stoker's Dracula|
While I won't dwell on vampires, this was pretty cool..
|Stir of Echoes|
Kevin Bacon needed some kind of redemption from Friday the 13th.
His abs here do the trick.
|Night of the Living Dead|
See what you get for making fun of your sister, Johnny?
Gregory Peck seems really out of place here.
|The Serpent and the Rainbow|
"Don't let them bury me, I'm not dead!"
This would have to be the worst feeling in the world, hands down.
Anyone could have told them dancing wasn't a good idea...
My question has always been: how did they get the tombstone that quick?
"Yeah..ok, it's her. You wanna go grab some lunch?"
Because the 'Burbs isn't always the best place to settle down.
|The Texas Chainsaw Massacre|
Probably the single best scene in that whole film, and it's first.
|The Walking Dead|
...and NOW we know why he was digging those graves.
