Blu-ray Review - Grave Robbers


The screenplay for 1988's "Grave Robbers" makes several references to the work of Stephen King. Writer/director Straw Weisman is clearly a fan, basically recycling King's formula of strangeness happening to an innocent while trapped in a deceptively cheery small town. These ingredients have worked for King on multiple occasions, and they help Weisman as well, giving his odd little movie a nice boost of atmosphere and illness. "Grave Robbers" is a dark comedy with horror interests that never completely gel, but the production is certainly focused on achieving something with the material, which adds pinches of zombies and necrophilia into its genre stew, watching Weisman work earnestly to make a strange feature that's impossible to predict and even harder to comprehend at times, but maintains a lively sense of madness and era-specific sexual concerns.
