Love After Death (1968)

Director: Glauco Del Mar

Starring: Guillermo De Cordova, Roberto Maurano, Carmin O'Neal, Angel Mario Ramirez, Gloris Garcia, Yolanda Signorelli, Juan Torres, Jennifer Welles, Cherie Winters

More info: IMDb

Tagline: Stay for the surprise ending!

Plot: Delicate cataleptic Mr. Montel is buried alive by his two-timing "virgin wife" Sofia and dastardly Dr. Anderson, but moments after his funeral, Montel claws himself out of the grave and swears vengeance on his wife by... becoming a sex maniac. The creepy little guy was a dud-in-bed before, but now he's turned on by every women he meets and learns there's nothing quite like Love After Death.

My rating: 5/10

Will I watch it again? No.

OK, so this man is buried alive (he's got that thing where he has all of the appearances of being dead but he's not) on purpose. It's 71 minutes long and in the first 10 minutes he's buried, crawls out and looks around.  That's how much padding there is in this picture.  Fortunately, we also get some AMAZING 1960s B&W nudity!

That's the best part and the only real reason to watch this.  There's a lot of it and it's all backed with some great jazz.

This Broad has more of a surprise ending than the movie.

There's a crazy supernatural ending (OK, so they buried husband disappears as a detective grabs him right after killing his wife).  Normally I'd consider that a spoiler alert but you won't care by the time you get to it if you should ever come across this to begin with.  If it weren't for the fantastic nudity there's no reason for me to ever watch this again.  I'll hold onto the disc since it's got a bunch of great trailers. The other two films that accompany this one aren't worth watching again, either - THE ATOMIC BRAIN (1963) and THE INCREDIBLE PETRIFIED WORLD (1957).
