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.

Dead & Buried is an incredible horror film from the creators of Alien. I really don't know how to describe this film. People have said that this is a zombie film, and I guess they're right in a way. Strangers in Potter's Bluff are murdered in horrific ways, and they return from the grave to kill. Dead & Buried is a well executed horror film that focuses on the atmosphere to create the tension on screen. There's plenty of tension and horror on screen. Dan O'Bannon's script is solid, and he definitely knows to create good horror. Dead & Buried is a gem of a horror film. The film is kinda of a zombie but is also different in many ways. The film will definitely appeal to gore fans and O'Bannon fans. Dead & Buried is a terrific horror film that is very creepy and is very disturbing too. Watching this film, you realize that they don't make horror films like this anymore. Films that rely on atmosphere to create effective, chilling horror. Dead & Buried is an effective horror film that should definitely be on every horror fans viewing list. Dead & Buried is an entertaining film with very acting, pacing, plot and directing. I thought that this film was superb and is one of horror's many classic films. A fine zombie film if you can call it that. Dead & Buried is an excellent horror film that will make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up.

A nicely done little horror flick with some nice twist, turns and scares.
A recommendation from Mr. Guillermo del Toro

Unique beginning; great cinematography all the way through -- assured movements and close cuts; extraordinary make-up effects by Stan Winston; and each act of violence shot to avoid routine and get under your skin ... and eyelids.

But more fog than you shake a stick at; and a performance by the male lead that makes him the sheriff in a 50s sci-fi movie crossed with the uncle from View From the Bridge ... I blame the director for giving into writer Dan O'Bannon, who has a way of crafting most of a movie incredibly right and letting the rest lapse into cult shtick.

Jack Albertson, as the coroner, deserves the compliments, but for a while it's a wooden performance, a totem for a low-budget horror film. Best acting: Melody Anderson, pissing on the feminism-for-sale of The Stepford Wives, in the sliest screwball comic performance I've seen buried in a horror film. Jenny Blount, as the town tart, is another Stepford refugee, who makes her centerfold appeal as scary as Winston's effects.

An 80's cult classic, Dead and Buried centres around a man who has returned to his small town called Potters Bluff as the new Sheriff to discover some weird shit is going down; people who have turned up dead, persumably murdered, appear to turn up again a little while later, alive and well! Obviously he tries to uncover whats going on but with little success. This has interesting characters, a great story with a feel of paranoia and impending doom and decent gore/make-up effects(for its time) and also delivers a great twist at the end at a time when twist weren't all the rage so it must have been pretty devestating back in 1981! Well worth a look for old school horror fans who like a decent story and atmosphere, not just blood and guts.

A damn fine little horror film and video nasty that features a creative premise, some decent gore, and above average acting for the genre. When people continue to start turning up brutally murdered a sherriff for a quaint little town vows to get to the bottom of the bizarre murders, but the further he digs the stranger things get. The dead seem to be returning to life and everyone in this town seems to be in on it except for the sherriff. I really like Jack Albertson in this movie as the mortician. A young Robert Englund is also featured in a small role. This film has it's moments of genuine terror. The change in tone in the beginning at the beach definently caught me off guard and genuinely shocked me. The film is also paced really well and keeps you interested in the plot througout, and on the edge of your seat as new pieces of the puzzle come to light. Highly recommended and definently one of the better video nasties.

Strange cult horror movie with pleasingly effective moments, but lots of logic loopholes.
It kept my attention. Worth seeing.

For years the coastal town of Potters Bluff has harbored a very dark secret it turns out that any stranger that has entered the town ends up dead only to show up later on as a town member o the sheriff and the town mortician try and uncover the mystery and find something more shocking then they could have ever iimagined. Really good Horror with moments of suspense that keep you interested all the way threw as with all movies though there is some slow scenes but really worth a watch i would recommend this movie to just about anyone

Very strange film but a great watch for retro fans

A really cool invasion/body-snatcher flick from the writers of Alien. Plays out really nice and slow. RECOMMENDED

Thanks to some genuinely creepy atmosphere and an amusing performance by Jack Albertson, Dead and Buried is a spooky film that deserves to be rediscovered by horror fans.

Dan O'Bannon may have been given the short stick when it comes to receiving credit, but I'm not too impressed with his solo efforts. That's pretty much true of George Harrison though. (bit of stretch)

Three stars for the premise and for Jack Albertson. A really cool idea that was implemented in a way that made it less cool as the film progressed. Too many "reveals" at the end made it seem longer than it was.

This one manages a pretty creepy and unsettling vibe as we're introduced to a small fishing village where the locals have a nasty habit of turning on anyone who happens to turn up new in town.

Well worth a look, features some nice practical effects.

Quite an interesting piece of cinematic horror. Both the beginning and the end are classic; very Lovecraft-like.

Well, if this movie wasn?t already ruined for me because it was written about in a dubiously titled book/guide, then it might have been more fun. What intrigued me was that it was supposedly very unique in its ending and that it had the biggest scare of the early 80?s horror movies. Well, the scare was somewhat dampened it they saw a particularly popular mid-90?s movie with Kevin Spacey. And the Stan Winston effects were pretty nice. But despite thinking about what happened to that family, did they die or didn?t they, it had a great mood to it but not many scares. Just the creep factor. And although it was supposed to be a New England town, it was clearly Northern California, but I guess it takes a northern Californian to notice.

One of the most underrated Sci-fi horror shockers of all time! writer Dan O'Bannon of "Return of the Living Dead", "Alien" and "Total Recall" fame and director Gary Sherman brings us a ghastly but smart zombie movie about a California town gone bad no thanks to a local corner who experiments on people. Does star Lisa Marie, Barry Corbin, Jack Albertson and others with some memorable moments of shocks like the syringe in the eye.
