Dead & Buried (1981) 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray: a true horror gem

U.S. label Blue Underground will be releasing Dead & Buried (1981) on a 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray on July 20, 2021.

Something very strange is happening in the quiet coastal village of Potters Bluff where tourists and transients are warmly welcomed, then brutally murdered. But even more shocking is when these slain strangers suddenly reappear as normal, friendly citizens around town. Now the local sheriff (James Farentino of The Final Countdown) and an eccentric mortician (Oscar winner Jack Albertson in his final feature film performance), must uncover the horrific secret of a community where some terrifying traditions are alive and well… and no one is ever really Dead & Buried.

Robert Englund (A Nightmare on Elm Street) co-stars in this genuinely chilling horror hit written by Robert Shusett and Dan O’Bannon (Alien), directed by Gary A. Sherman (Poltergeist III), and featuring ultra-grisly gore effects by Oscar® winner Stan Winston (Terminator 2, Aliens).

The kind of horror movie that can’t be made in Hollywood today — serious but not high-minded, meticulously crafted but not showy.
