Movie Reviews

Underrated Movie
Derek G | Redneck, South Carolina | 10/26/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"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."

"WOW! What a great birthday present I bought myself. It was
my B-Day yesterday and I wanted to (trick or)treat myself
to the best gift I could think of...A HORROR MOVIE! But what
to buy??? I do see they have the ULITIMATE EDIT. of EVIL DEAD
and now they release a two disc. of HELLRAISER. But I own
both those classics on single disc. I want something new
and GREAT I had not seen in HORROR! Well as I scanned the
D-Section in HORROR my finger hit DEAD & BURIED! hmmmmmm.
I remember seeing this on SHOWTIME a loooong time ago and
really not liking it. I felt I should give it another shot
give it another try so on a whim I bought it. First off
the music in this is great!!!! HUGE plus in Clint's book
also the directing and acting are great. It starts off
with a man taking pic. of the beach when a woman appears
out of nowhere and heavily flirts with him. All the sudden while
he gets ready to kiss her a group of people come and beat the man
to a pulp. They then throw over him a fishing net and light him
on fire all the while there taking pic.of him. This really sucks
you in the first 5 min. of the movie for some of the towns people
who are participating in this murder have the faces you'd trust
watching your children. later in the movie the man they murdered
turns up A O.K.??? Is he a GHOST is it WITCHCRAFT is he a ZOMBIE
WHAT??? I am not telling for you really need to watch this movie.
All I can say is what a B-Day treat to not only watch a HORROR
movie I had not seen but one that is great! I proudly have
Buy this movie for it is BURY good(sic)"
