As part of its 20th anniversary celebrations, exground will screen a selection of key titles from its 19 previous editions with the emphasis on daring creations such as the German film Nekromantik by Jörg Buttgereit (1987) and Michele Soavi’s French/Italian zombie picture Of Death, Of Love (1994), one of the most impressive of its kind.
