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 text refers to the DVD edition.
In addition to an uncut, widescreen print, Blue Underground's double-disc set offers no less than three separate commentaries for Dead and Buried, each moderated by the label's David Gregory, and featuring director Gary Sherman; co-producer/co-writer Ronald Shusett and his wife Linda, who also appears in the film; and cinematographer Steve Poster. Each track provides a wealth of behind-the-scenes information, mostly about the film's considerable growing pains (production company changes transformed the film from a black comedy to a gory thriller to please the slasher crowd). The second disc offers interview featurettes with special effects creator Winston, actor Robert Englund, and co-author Dan O'Bannon; the first two are fairly dry talking-head segments, but O'Bannon offers some interesting anecdotes on his involvement in the picture as well as his opinions on horror in general. The extras are rounded out by the American and international trailers, location stills from Poster, and a gallery of promotional art. --Paul Gaita --This text refers to the DVD edition.
As horror films go, this particular one, is quite different and enjoyable. The story line is unique and that is one of the reasons I enjoy this movie so much. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Ringo Spencer
