Dead & Buried (1981) | Gary Shulman | USA | Video Nasty 17 of 72

Dead & Buried was initially banned as a “video nasty” in the UK in the early 1980s, but was later acquitted of obscenity charges and removed from the Director of Public Prosecutions’ list.

AllMovie wrote, “it’s easy to see why Dead and Buried never found a big audience. It is too plot-heavy for those viewers in search of a shock machine yet too visceral for the viewers who appreciate subtle horror”, but complimented its “blend of creepy atmosphere and gruesome shocks.” (x)
