THE GRAVEDIGGER (2019) Overview


The Gravedigger is a 2019 American science-fiction horror film directed by Erynn Dalton, making her feature debut, from a screenplay written by Joseph Zettelmaier.

The Infinite Abyss Productions movie stars Paul Homza, Arlette Del Tor, Gisbert Heuer and Tyler Charles Kane.


Set in the late 1700s, in one of Bavaria’s forgotten cemeteries, a lone gravedigger discovers a hideously scarred man hiding in a fresh grave. What the gravedigger doesn’t know is that the man is none other than the monster created by a mad doctor.

What the scarred man doesn’t know is the gravedigger’s hand in his creation. And what neither men know is that they are hunted by their shared past…


“I’ve always been drawn to gothic horror stories with complex characters that can’t easily be labelled as ‘good’ or ‘evil’, which is why I chose The Gravedigger for my first feature,” director Erynn Dalton explained.

“Also, Joseph Zettelmaier (the writer) did such a beautiful job adding new dimensions to Mary Shelley’s classic ‘Frankenstein’ characters that I think the story will feel fresh and really resonate with the audience.


The Gravedigger will have its world premiere on August 15 at the 2019 Popcorn Frights Film Festival in Fort Lauderdale, Miami.
