Movie Reviews

Not missing much
N. Durham | Philadelphia, PA | 12/02/2007
(2 out of 5 stars)

"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."

"Buried Alive is idiotic. Period. I'm not even sure where to begin so I'll just start with the obvious stupidity like the cliché characters. We've got the druggie slacker, the jock, the beotch, the nerd, the slut and the one and only chick that JUST SO HAPPENS to be schooled in the fine art of Native American totems and ancient evil. Did I mention there's also a "Crazy Ralph?" Well, there is, Tobin Bell plays a sinister old prospector/caretaker that warns the group about evil, makes lewd comments and threatens the guys with bodily harm.

The dialogue was just plain bad, the banter bordered on nonsensical and some of the "back story" like the druggie slacker's need for medication and the druggie slacker's incestuous connections with his cousin (the beotch). This was a poorly written script, no doubt about it.

About midway through the film I realized there were only two things that could possibly keep this film from being the worst film in Robert Kurtzman's filmography...nudity & gore. Unfortunately...the gore was sparse and, while there was nudity, it could have been a higher quality nudity.

In other words...Buried Alive failed. Even when they could have succeeded in the lowest common denominator category...they failed at that as well. The story was convoluted and goofy, it took way too long to get some real murderous mayhem and the finale was a rushed let down."
OK for amusement only

"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."
I've seen better.....

"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."
