Product Description


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.

Special Features

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.

Dead and Buried is a good cult movie that unfortunately was overlooked by its theatrical run during the early 80s. By looking at the movie, it has a 50s feel to it due to the plot and the great architecture of the buildings located in the small town. Let's do a brief summary of the plot.
One day, a photographer from St. Louis goes to a beach located in a small town called Potter's Bluff. He takes some pictures until he runs into a sexy blonde who calls herself Lisa. He takes some pictures of her until she unbuttons her blouse, saying do you want me. He comes closer until a group of people beat him up and put him in a net. The weirdest part is that the people have cameras and take pictures of him. Before they set him on fire, one the people say, "Welcome to Potter's Bluff," a line you will hear throughout the film.
During the night, a car is spotted on fire. The police arrived to investigate, including the head sheriff. Also involved is a mortician, played by the late Jack Albertson, who playes one of the weirdest people you will ever meet on screen. The sheriff, played by James Farentino, spots what seems to be a corpse in the car. His suspicion is that the corpse was already burnt before the car was lit on fire. As one the people touch the corpse, the corpse just all of a sudden screams. It turns out that the corpse was the photographer, who was burnt in the first scene of the movie. As the sheriff investigates the crime, local people turn up murdered by the same group who burnt the photographer, who dies in a horrific scene you got to see to believe. While the sheriff investigates the other crimes, it turns out that his wife is starting to get interested in witchcraft. Also, a local hotel manager tells the sheriff that his wife knew the photographer.

In the quiet coastal village of Potters Bluff, where tourists and transients are always welcome but when something very strange is happening to the tourists and villagers of Potters Bluff are Brutally Murdered. But even more shocking, when the people are murdered and they back to life as normal friendly citizens around town. The local sheriff (James Farentino) decides to do something about it, while an eccentric mortican (Oscar-Winner:Jack Albertson) is somehow commited to the town`s community. Since the dead are back to life are alive and well... and no one is ever really Dead & Buried.
Directed by Gary A. Sherman (Deathline, Poltergeist 3, Vice Squad) made an effected genuinely fantasy horror film with a sense of humour. This film was a miss at the Box Office in 1981. The film also stars:Melody Anderson (Flash Gordon), Robert Englund (A Nightmare on Elm Street Series) and Oscar-Winner:Lisa Blount (An Officer and an Gentleman). Also Barry Corbin and Micheal Patiki appears in bit parts. The film features One of the First theatrical Make-Up Effects work by Oscar-Winner:Stan Winston (The Terminator Series). One of the Best Scenes in the movie is the Infamous Controversial Hypodermic Needle in the Eyeball Scene is a Classic. Since this is a Limited Edition, I have number 7629 out of 50000.
DVD Features are Good, including Three Commentaries Tracks by the Narrator for Blue Underground:David Gregory for all Three Tracks with the Filmmakers:Director-Sherman, Co-Screenwriter:Ronald Shusett, Shusett`s Wife:Linda Turley and Cinematographer:Steve Poster. The First Track Director:Sherman shares his Stories with Gregory about that he missed his Original Cut, which now it doesn`t exist.

Dead and Buried is a memorable 80's horror film recently resurrected by Blue Underground and given the full DVD treatment including a bonus disc loaded with interesting material. Is this obscure 1981 film worthy of such treatment? Sure is. The story takes place in the quaint coastal town of Potter's Bluff. The introductory scene lets us know right away that there's something awfully wrong with the citizens of this community. Whenever newcomers or passers-by go through the town the residents gang up on them, kill them and snap pictures of the whole deal. The additional twist is that the victims eventually return from their supposed deaths to become themselves upstanding citizens of the Potters Bluff community. Town sheriff Dan Gillis (in a solid performance by James Farentino) is becoming increasingly aware that something is off in his town and investigates the murders.
From the opening scene on a beach where a tourist snaps photos, the film establishes a great sense of atmosphere right away. There seems to be something about horror films set in coastal towns and fishing villages that make them stylish and atmospheric (ex: Dagon, The Fog) and Dead and Buried is certainly no exception. Visually stylish, the film has aged surprisingly well for a 1981 picture. There are no painful fashion trends of that era on display and that, coupled with the high quality of the transfer, make this film look like something that would have been done in the late eighties instead. All of this is no surprise considering some of the names associated with this picture, most notably screenplay writer Dan O'Bannon and special effects wizard Stan Winston. Winston's work here is absolutely stunning, especially in regards to his charred and burned body puppets.
