Editorial Reviews

Available for the first time - the digital series as a movie! It begins with a terrifying darkness, the sound of staccato breathing, spurts of weeping, and the horrifying screech of fingernails against metal. Someone is buried alive. Rick, a handsome, 20 year-old, is just one of the victims trapped in a coffin. Illuminated in the darkness by the flame of a cigarette lighter, the details of the scene come into focus as a night-vision camera, embedded in the corner of the coffin, captures his every move. On his left, an ominous warning: SAVE YOUR BREATH. Aiding the group above ground are two sleuths, siblings Melanie and Travis, each with a secret stake tied to the victims' fates. The duo will piece together information gleaned from found footage and online diaries hidden on the Web, in the ultimate race against time to unravel the mystery and discover the locations of the buried coffins before time runs out.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not missing much December 2, 2007
Buried Alive revolves around a group of college kids who soon learn that the demonic spirit of a woman murdered in their vacation house is out for blood, and guess who's in her axe-wielding sights? Robert Kurtzman, best known as partner to gore effects gurus Greg Nicotero and Howard Berger (hence, KNB Effects) and the original scripter for From Dusk Till Dawn, directs Buried Alive, and sadly it comes off as another derivative, uninspired slasher flick that provides little in the way of scares or suspense. The acting is atrocious and the story is cliche and oh so predictable (for the most part), but Buried Alive does have a few good moments of note, including some nifty gore effects and a small role from Saw's Tobin "Jigsaw" Bell, who himself up's the creep factor just by appearing on film. All in all, Buried Alive may be worth a look for die hard slasher fans, but those that don't see it won't be missing much at all either.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK for amusement only August 4, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Campy horror film, only bought film because jigsaw from saw was in it. The killings were average. The ending could have been better, it made the film seem unfinished.

3.0 out of 5 stars I've seen better..... July 14, 2009
But I've also seen a lot worse. The movie had it's fun moments. The problem is it's a YRV movie trapped inside an R rating. It was boring at times, and the "plot" didn't really make much sense, but it had it's moment of being a little scary. Maybe it's just the other horrible movies I've seen (*cough* Rest Stop *cough*) but I didn't think this was that terrible.

Then again, it definitely wasn't that great.

2.0 out of 5 stars Some good fun, but not enough to make it worth it. September 17, 2008
A group of college kids at an abandoned house pull a prank that sets loose a murderous ghost.

There's something strange, these days and in the past, that often happens to stars of major horror films. After their success, even if their fame is not at an end, they will star in random paycheck movies simply because they're asked, regardless of the quality of the film. Buried Alive is that paycheck for Saw-series star Tobin Bell (Jigsaw). When it comes to a straight-to-video slasher film like this (especially one marketed by the usually trustworthy Dimension Extreme), there are certain things horror fans have come to expect: Heavy gore, attractive women (who, most often, take off their clothes), and, at the very least, some entertainment. Unfortunately, even on as 'unrated,' the film does not deliver on the blood & guts. There is some violence, but not enough, and the result of the violence doesn't have enough splatter. The women are attractive, so they did deliver to us the eye candy. And, as far as entertainment and enjoyment go, well. . . it varied. At some points, the film is a good time and worth a few laughs. Other times, however, the film turns into a bit of a slow-drag bore (especially during the sorority stuff). From the plot to the effects, there's nothing here that hasn't been seen dozens of times before, so if you're in need of some predictability with a bit of enjoyability, you might want to check this out. . . but, you can do a whole lot better.

Final verdict: 4/10.

4.0 out of 5 stars Horrofic fun! March 25, 2008
Buried Alive promised so much on the write up on the back and to a point it did deliver.

Basic story of amorous college girls and guys go away for a good time and are unfortunate enough to walk straight into a scenario involving a dead chick out for blood and a creepy Tobin Bell. The axe-welding maniac from the grave manages to wreck havoc and along the way we get to see some nakedness so, no complaints really.

Some of the kills are done off-screen which to me is not a major problem as there is a decent amount of gore still on offer. All in all I enjoyed this film and was happy enough to pay the 12 bucks to add it to my growing collection of b-grade and a-grade horrors.

3.0 out of 5 stars Somewhat decent horror movie October 29, 2007
By MattW
This film certainly isn't anything to write home about. It's fairly derivative and has an almost shockingly anticlimactic finale. Having said that, there are some decent scares, some gorarrific death scenes, nice production values, and a few unexpected twists. The film would have benefited from more interesting actors, writing, and direction to distinguish it as it certainly doesn't stand out from the pack. However, I'm being slightly generous by awarding it three stars, in part due to some well executed special effects.

3.0 out of 5 stars It is what it is... November 12, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
With the element of surprise being paramount in the success of scaring you in a horror film, this one does not succeed. It's fairly predictable. I kept reading how great the special effects were going to be in this film, but I was disappointed in that aspect the most. The film does have some unique moments and Tobin Bell gets more screen time than I was first led to believe. It did not exceed nor fall behind my expectations. In my opinion, the actors did a respectable job with a weak script. There wasn't a lot to work with.

Buried Alive (Robert Kurtzman, 2007)

Robert Kurtzman's 2007 effort The Rage has garnered accolades from any number of people whom I otherwise believe to have some taste in film. I have never understood what they see in it. Buried Alive, his 2007 follow-up, has never received those same kudos. That made sense even before I saw this movie, but now, for some horrible reason, I have seen it, and the best thing I can say about it is “it's not the worst movie I saw today.” (That dubious distinction goes to the dreadful Machine Gun Preacher). But if you're looking for a decent horror movie, this is not the way to go.

Plot: cousins Rene (Going Down in La-La Land's Leah Rachel in her screen debut) and Zane (Green Street Hooligans' Terence Jay) attend the same college. Rene's sorority has a couple of pledges to haze, and Zane, who's on academic probation, is looking for an alternate means of living if he gets kicked out of school. Both of these things lead to the two of them packing a car full of young-and-beautifuls and heading out to the old ancestral pile, where grandpappy it a huge gold score a long time ago, much of which seems to have mysteriously vanished. Zane and his research assistant Phil (Here Comes the Boom's Germaine Scott Grimes) have come to the belief through scouring old newspaper clippings that grandpappy hid the rest of the gold somewhere on his property—a belief shared by eccentric old housekeeper Lester (Saw's Tobin Bell, whose taste in scripts continues to astonish), who's been doing some digging in the basement when not practicing his taxidermy.
