Site Moved

I moved the English-language site to a new location, (next to the Hungarian one, though probably just temporarily).
The URL that takes you there is the same: http://www.ilonahegedus.com

Do not visit my website

Its traffic has exceeded the limit and it has been shut down. (Temporarily.) Both good and bad. :-)

About the previous post

Some of you probably noticed that the previous post was a press release. You might find this strange, if you visit this site regularly, as I usually do not include ads or media releases. I included this only because bloggers are contacted as a part of Anchor Bay's grassroots campaign, and I was also contacted. I was asked to pass this on and the movie seemed interesting enough, so I did it.

Cemetary Man Seems Like An Interesting Horror Movie


Here's Anchor Bay Entertainment's press release on the horror movie Cemetary Man and its DVD release.
(I was asked to pass it on.) It sounds really intriguing.



Great horror films are like zombies – the best ones always come back!

On Tuesday, June 13th, Anchor Bay Entertainment, an IDT Entertainment company, will release the eagerly-awaited U.S. DVD premiere of Cemetery Man , one of the most requested horror titles of the last decade. Revered by consumers and industry critics alike for releasing classic and cult horror films, Anchor Bay continues that tradition for Cemetery Man (aka Dellamorte Dellamore ) with a new anamorphic widescreen transfer, and resurrected with a SRP of $19.98.

Directed by Michele Soavi, Cemetery Man stars Rupert Everett ( My Best Friend's Wedding and the voice of Prince Charming in Shrek 2 ) as Francesco Dellamore, a cemetery caretaker who finds that his seemingly dead-end job has recently become a little harder. Along with his sidekick Gnaghi (Francois Hadji-Lazaro), Francesco spends his days interning corpses and his nights killing “returners” – those who have risen from their grave seven days after burial. Life changes for Francesco when he falls for a beautiful, mysterious widow (Anna Falchi). When fate intervenes, Francesco must choose between Love Eternal and the Living Dead…

Ever since its release in 1994, Cemetery Man has shocked and tickled with its unique balance of the macabre and the comical. Anchor Bay Entertainment dug deep to find bonus features worthy of the film's reputation, including:

  • Widescreen Presentation (1.66:1), enhanced for 16x9 TVs
  • Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound
  • Death is Beautiful: The Making of Cemetery Man featuring all-new cast and crew interviews including director Michele Soavi, star Anna Falchi and more
  • Michele Soavi Bio
  • Trailers
