We almost hit the back button on this because it stated off a bit too cheesy but it got much better. It’s a very nice take on zombies with a nice twist toward the end. If you like zombie movies you shouldn’t be disappointed in this one… though it’s a bit talky at times. A fair amount of creepiness keeps it flowing… don’t give up on it because the creepy does outweigh the cheesy.
Dead & Buried is one of those films that is very underated. This film definately suffered from a script rewrites & it's production company(ies) being bought out twice. But the film worked beautufully. And is one of the most unusual "Zombie" films I have ever seen. Plus the infamous "Hypodermic Needle In The Eyeball" scene. If you want to see a different kind of Zombie Film, watch Dead & Buried
Wow!! This movie was good, considering that this movie was made before there was even Computerized Graphical Special Effects and Zombies had just begun to appear in Motion Pictures. The Actors and supporting cast did a superb job of scaring the crap out of viewers with all the outright evil killing scenes, now, besides being instilled with the fear of walking amongst strangers in unfamiliar places..I must also confess that the scene at the beginning where the pretty young blonde girl throws open her blouse to reveal her wonderful and shapely Buxom made me realize that I no longer need Viagra as a stimulant, provided all my future partners look like her!
What a twist an ending only found in the old Twilight Zone shows Just to prove even with poor acting over all if the story is well written nothing else matters. Bravo I loved it truly a horror classic in it;s own right!
If you're looking for a late nite binge on horror look no further. Dead and Buried is a grade Z classic from the early eighties think shades of Lovecraft meets John Carpenter. James Farentino, long an under rated actor shines as the sherriff of Potter's Bluff a fictional New England town where visitors seem to disappear. Definitely a hoot fest, this macabre tale of murder, mayhem and conspiratorial silence will keep you guessing until the final twist at the end. Also starring is the lengedary Jack Albertson, who in what is probably his last film, came a long way from his role in 'Chico and Tthe Man.' Check out Robert Englund aka Freddie Kruger has a bit part as well. Enjoy~!
The tiny fishing town of Potter's Bluff harbors a terrifying secret that outsiders are just dying to figure out! When a number of tourists and hitchhikers begin suffering from a series of fatal accidents, it is up to the new sheriff to figure out who is responsible for the grisly attacks and why the bodies of the dead refuse to stay buried! Featuring special make-up effects by Academy Award-winning artist Stan Winston, DEAD AND BURIED is a chilling tale of death and rebirth that is filled with eerie atmospherics and a number of bloody murders. Director Gary Sherman keeps his dreary seaside setting constantly enshrouded in a creeping mist that gives off the same frightening aura as John Carpenter's Antonio Bay. The fear and paranoia generated by the conspiring townspeople also recalls the anxiety-ridden INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS in many respects. James Farentino adds a warm touch as the town's suspicious sheriff playing against the mischievous Jack Albertson in the role of William G. Dobbs, the mortician. DEAD AND BURIED serves as a dark and downbeat companion to THE FOG that will leave Gothic Horror fans begging for more!
