Critic Reviews for Dead and Buried
extraordinary performance of Jack Albertson as the old-fashioned mortician determined to work his fingers to the bone - rendered all the more poignant by the fact that the actor was actually dying during production
While the technical aspects of the movie are brilliant, the central idea is executed poorly. [Full Review in Spanish]
One of the most interesting American horror films of 1981.
While Dead and Buried is undeniably cheesy and clichéd here and there, it's a surprisingly competent and effective film for being so little-known.
Director Gary Sherman stills the camera only long enough to compose deep-focus Gothic
Audience Reviews for Dead and Buried
Time has taken a toll on this '80's offering but Dead and Buried retains a measure of macabre creepiness that compensates for its campy transparency.
This horror movie combines a bunch of really creepy elements. It's got witchcraft, zombies, and a whole town of people attacking travelers. I was really surprised, as this movie starts out so seemingly dull, and then escalates quickly into your worst nightmare. Plus, the ending is great. This is a good horror movie.
Dead and Buried has an amazing concept and looks beautiful. Why it almost completely lacks memorable characters and a well thought out plot, it's at heart a really cool horror story. The idea of it is ridiculous, but somehow it works in the end. I find it hilarious that Grandpa Joe from Willy Wonka ended up being a deranged mortician. What this really needed to be was a short film or part of something like Creepshow because you can only do so much with such a particular concept. The opening is the most suspenseful and well put together part of the movie, but after that it just sort've loses its edge. However, this movie has a great style and totally nails the spooky small town atmosphere.
