Product Description

James Farentino, Melody Anderson, Robert Englund. When tourists in a small town on the coast start being murdered, the local sheriff uncovers some dark and ugly secrets. But the oddities don't stop there. The people killed become reincarnated as normal, friendly citizens around town. 1981/color/94 min/R/widescreen.

Amazon.com

Overlooked during its theatrical run but a cult favorite on video, this unique and chilling take on the zombie film finally joins the digital ranks with a two-DVD set from Blue Underground. James Farentino stars as a small-town sheriff who discovers that the victims in a string of grisly murders are reappearing seemingly alive and unharmed. His investigation leads him to suspect that the local mortician (Jack Albertson) is somehow responsible for these reanimated corpses; what Farentino doesn't know is the extent to which the entire town-himself included-is involved. First-time viewers will appreciate director Gary Sherman's attention to pacing and atmosphere, as well as the often darkly humorous script by co-producer Ronald Shusett and Dan O'Bannon (Alien, Total Recall) and the solid cast (which includes future horror star Robert Englund); longtime fans will appreciate the fact that Blue Underground's uncut print restores many of Stan Winston's gruesome special effects. --Paul Gaita

This halloween, I've been waxing nostalgic by collecting by collecting a lot of old, little-known horror movies that scared me as a kid. Back in the late 70's/early 80's there really wasn't much out there so viewers who allow a little leeway for the time it was released will find a lot to appreciate in this movie.
Dead and Buried stars James Farentino as Sheriff Dan Gillis who becomes bewildered by a series of bizarre and brutal murders happening to visitors of his small, seaside town. The plot thickens due to the quick dismissal of the murders by Gillis' wife (played by Melody Anderson - anyone remember Flash Gordon?) and soon the sheriff starts to wonder if she is involved somehow. To make matters worse, townspeople start reporting sightings of the murdered long after they've been "dead and buried."
The story is adequate with a number of twists thrown in. Skilled horror buffs may feel let down with the ending, but I think it's due to the fact many other movies have ripped off this plot line since the movie was released. What really separates this movie from the rest is the disturbing methods these people are murdered, with frequent cuts to dozens of people surrounding and photographing the helpless victims. The murders look especially realistic for the time (although, granted a little dated now) due to makeup effects of Stan Winston who has since worked on other "little-known" releases like Predator, Edward Scissorhands, the Jurassic Park series, and the Terminator series.
You'll be lucky to run across a copy of this movie in a video store. Should you buy it? If you're a fan of the genre and movies made in this time period, such as The Funhouse, My Bloody Valentine, or Halloween, then I'd say yes.
Hope the review helped.

In the sea of forgettable FRIDAY THE 13th sequels and clones came this little creative and disturbing gem from the early 80's wave of gruesome horror.

Several people passing through the quaint and picturesque town of Potter's Bluff die terrible, violent deaths only to turn up as upstanding members of the community days later. What's going on? Well, I wouldn't dream of telling, but you'll have a lot of fun finding out.

Blue Underground bravely chose to bring DEAD AND BURIED to blu-ray in spite of it's low-budget and humble production values. Visually, the result may not be on a par with some glossy production shot yesterday, but it nonetheless faithfully reproduces the imagery of this film as it originally appeared, and this is the best you are ever likely to see DEAD AND BURIED look. I had the deluxe DVD treatment, and this Blu-ray is IMO a worthy upgrade of a great little shocker.

Set in the town of Potter's Bluff where it seems like a nice little town to stay, mysterious murders and graverobbings have occured. A baffled Sherrif with the help of a local Mortician ( Jack Albertson) investigate these bizarre cases, but they figured out that it's caused by corpses that have been brought back to life by voodoo reanimation.
A brilliant, original and startling shocker from Dan O'Bannon ( Writer of "Heavy Metal", "Alien" and " Total Recall"), the gore effects with zombie effects by Stan Winston are quite good especially the infamous needle through the eyeball scene which rivals the splinter scene in "Zombie", good acting, creepy atmosphere, cool zombies, Robert Englund ( a.k.a. Freddy Krueger) and Barry Corbin from Critters 2 co-stars, and a shocking twist in the end.
The DVD is quite excellent in sound quality and picture, the film is fully uncut and uncensored and the extras are out of this world. I recommend this movie to fans of horror and zombie flicks but not for the faint hearted.
Also recommended: Burial Ground, Resident Evil, Dead Heat, From Dusk Till Dawn, Phantasm, Suspiria, Total Recall, Return of the Living Dead, The Serpent and The Rainbow, Re-Animator, City of the Living Dead, Nightmare City, Return of the Living Dead 3, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, The Stuff, Lifeforce, Dawn of the Dead, Day of the Dead, Let Sleeping Corpses Lie, Zombie, House by the Cemetery, and The Beyond.
