5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Euro-Horror Classic!!! October 11, 2003
Joe D'Amato has directed like over 100 films, everything from hard core porn to hard core gore and sometimes even both in the same movie. In numerous interviews he has stated that this film is one of his very favourites and it is easily a classic of European horror.
The story isn't very complicated, the main character has a beautiful fiancee who dies tragicly and he also practices taxidermy as a hobby, need I say more. Everything one could possibly want from a film of this genre is here, it's heavy on style , there are some great gore scenes and of course nudity. What sets this film apart though is the scene in which the girls body is being enbalmed. This is filmed with some genuinely great effects and a good eye for realism leading many to wrongfully beleive that real cadavers were used during filming.
The DVD is outstanding, the picture and sound quality are great. I especially liked an interview which comes as a special feature on the disc with actress Cinzia Monreale who also played Emily in 'the Beyond' and spends most of her time on screen in this film playing a corpse, including a long scene of being naked and disected on a table. It's cool cos she is still amazingly beautiful and energecticly funny during the interview (despite some very unimaginative questions from the interviewer) as she reveals that she actually dislikes horror films and also says that she has no problem with being naked on camera :)
Overall this is a solid DVD presentation of a film any true Euro-horror fan will love.

5.0 out of 5 stars D'Amato's gore opus February 3, 2005
Roughly twelve years ago I found myself morosely ambling through the aisles of a local video store, grumbling about the generally poor selection of the types of films I love to watch. Which films are those, you ask? Just your average, everyday gory unrated and uncut pukers. Well, you won't find many of these, films like "Cannibal Holocaust," the unrated version of "Dead Alive," or a number of other highly memorable gore movies at any mainstream video outlet. And finding them a decade ago? Forget about it. Before DVD you considered yourself lucky to find anything more than the standard "Friday the 13th" and "Halloween" style slasher films on the shelf. Sometimes the good old days weren't that great. Anyway, my eyes fell on a cheesy looking VHS box for a film called "Buried Alive." I had walked by this movie a dozen times before without giving it much thought; the lackluster cover art wasn't exactly a big selling point. This time, however, I decided to give it a shot. I was glad I did! It turned out that "Buried Alive" was none other than an uncut and unedited version of goremeister Joe D'Amato's epic "Beyond the Darkness" aka "Buio Omega."

Frank (Kieran Canter) is a taxidermist living off the wealth of his deceased parents whose world falls to pieces when his beautiful young girlfriend Anna (Cinzia Monreale) expires in the hospital after an extended illness. Frank falls to pieces soon after as well, evidenced by his return to the graveyard after the burial services in order to exhume the body of his beloved. Our hero returns home with Anna and immediately sets to work in a scene that has since gained well-deserved notoriety with gorehounds the world over.

5.0 out of 5 stars sick sick sick...great great great April 15, 2002
By Jake
I have been looking forever for a copy of this film , and especially on Amazon and had not been able to find it...the reason is because for some strange reason this film is being released under it's original Italian title Buio Omega ( Blue Holocaust) . This is actually nonother than most true horror fans and fans of Joe D'Amato (Aristide Massaccesi) know this film as Buried Alive. The re-titling had caused quite a bit of confusion because the movie itself was available but those checking this review out thinking it's one you've never seen it's BURIED ALIVE (1979)
The story is this and it's quite sick as this being next to Cannibal Ferox (Make Them Die Slowly) the most revolting disgusting piece of filmmaking ever captured on screen , and I have a strong stomache too but was unable to stomache the atrocities in this film thats why it has a special place in my heart.
It involves a taxidermist with a messed up childhood who enjoys the pleasures of a cold blue dead body...enough said
If you want to go on a diet ..I guarantee 1 viewing of this film will make it so you never eat anything again
Highly recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars Love and its Potential Derragements June 9, 2002
Have you ever fallen hopelessly in love and found that fate wasn't with you? Well, Francesco, the focal point of this movie, finds himself in that boat. Instead of the atypical relationship woes, however, his beloved dies, leaving him alone to try and quench love's eternal flames. He finds this hard to do, though, and decides that he needs his wife with his forever. So, after exhuming her body, Francesco decides to use some well-placed taxidermy skills to keep love by his side (or in his bed, hidden in a closet, etc.). Unfortunately for him - or maybe for them, some people don't seem to take kindly to finding out his secret obsession and oftentimes panic at the sight of his paler-than-normal bride. This, of course, leads to wonderful fingernail-removing dilemmas, plus more "moving" scenes forged in the fires of love.
I would have to say that this movie is really good, but I also have to go on the record as saying that it wasn't really as "insane" as people had stated. In fact, after reading some of the reviews here, I was severely disappointed in what I found. Being a fan of "shock cinema," I was looking forward to insinuated necrophilia, oceans of gore, the horror aspects, plus all the other "holy grails" this movie seemingly offered. Instead, I should have listened to the disclaimer on the movie that stated a bit fewer depictions of graphic yumminess. In truth, I thought the movie was a little gory, a little violent, entertaining, but ultimately a bit tame. That said, the movie is worth watching and horror buffs will still enjoy themselves.
