Product Description

The Creators Of ALIEN Bring A New Terror To Earth

Something very strange is happening in the quiet coastal village of Potters Bluff, where tourists and transients are warmly welcomed... then brutally murdered. But even more shocking is when these slain strangers suddenly reappear as normal, friendly citizens around town. Now the local sheriff (James Farentino of THE FINAL COUNTDOWN) and an eccentric mortician (Oscar(r) winner Jack Albertson in his final feature film appearance) must uncover the horrific secret of a community where some terrifying traditions are alive and well... and no one is ever really DEAD & BURIED.

Robert Englund (A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET) co-stars in this genuinely chilling horror hit written by Ronald Shusett and Dan O'Bannon (ALIEN), directed by Gary A. Sherman (RAW MEAT), and featuring ultra-grisly gore effects by Oscar(r) winner Stan Winston (ALIENS, TERMINATOR 2). DEAD & BURIED is now presented in eye-popping High Definition, completely uncut and uncensored, and loaded with revealing Extras.

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.

I did like this film and I just watched it for the second time. I give it a very solid 3 stars. But I'm puzzled by the other reviews. I would give Alien 4 stars and Aliens 5 stars. This film does not reach those lofty heights. Even though it's encoded for 7.1 sound, I didn't hear much coming from the surrounds. And while it may be in high-def, it is rather grainy. This is not real surprising with a film this old. But advertising it as high-def with 7.1 sound creates expectations which are not met. The film billed itself as being made by the folks who made Alien. Again, it is raising expectations needlessly. People are going to expect a film equal to Alien in gorgeous hi-def with stunning 7.1 surround sound. This film can't deliver that. But it is a very good grade B horror film and it is worth watching several times.

The cast is very strong. It is cool to see a young Robert Englund. And Jack Albertson's performance as the undertaker is worth an Academy Award. James Farentino never wins any awards but he never delivers a bad performance either. It was good to see him again. Also the film is now a period piece due to its age. It was fun watching the sheriff (or his aide) use a telex to investigate. And we have great fx for a low budget pre-cgi film. The story made no sense, but that is often the case with horror.

So yes, it's a nice 3 star horror film, not another Alien.
