A Cult-Movie with a Surprising End
Sheriff Dan Gillis (James Farentino) has a nice life with his wife, the teacher Janet Gillis (Melody Anderson), in the small coastal and friendly town of Potter’s Bluff. When visitors are mysterious killed in the town, Sheriff Gillis investigates the cases carefully and finds that dead people are reanimating and coming back to life. Dan finds a book of witchcraft and voodoo in his wife’s drawer and he suspects that she might be practicing black magic. Dan meets the coroner-mortician William G. Dobbs (Jack Albertson) and learns the dreadful and surprising secret.
“Dead & Buried” is a cult-movie with a creepy atmosphere and a surprising end. The plot has flaws, with lack of explanation for many situations. Why should Dobbs let the sheriff investigate further and not disclose the truth about him in the beginning? My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): “Os Mortos Vivos” (“The Living Dead”)

“The creepy small town with a secret”
SPOILERS Will most likely follow…
A friend of mine came up with a collective noun for nice little movies like this. “The creepy small town with a secret”, and when you think of it…many ( especially 80’s ) horror flicks fall under this description. Dead & Buried is like the perfect representation of this sub genre. It’s a really enjoyable horror from the early eighties that got forgotten a bit over the years, like so many other decent films. The stuff that is going on in the little town Potters Bluff is peculiar to say the least. Tourists or just people who’re passing by are getting murdered and buried by the local mortician, but they don’t seem to stay in their graves!!! The local Sheriff tries to solve the mystery, but doesn’t really know where to start. After all, who can he trust? Even his old friends and his wife are not acting like their old selves lately…
Dead & Buried is surely recommend to anyone who can appreciate a low-brained horror experience. The movie has a pretty solid plot ( from the hand of Don O’Bannon – the overtalented writer who also brought us Alien, Lifeforce and The Return of the Living Dead ), and it manages to keep up a macabre atmosphere during the entire movie. The acting is pretty decent and the crew contains a few familiar faces…Like Robert “Freddy” Englund and the unforgettable Jack “Grandpa Joe” Albertson from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory!! Dead & Buried is a refreshing and creepy tale, but it remains horror in the first place! The film has a few wonderful gruesome sequences that’ll satisfy the most trained horror fans. Highly recommended !!
