DEAD AND BURIED (1981 U.S.) D: GARY SHERMAN W: DAN O`BANNON/JEFF MILLAR/ALEX STERN W/P: RONALD SHUSETT P: ROBERT FENTRESS
Travellers passing through the small New England fishing town of Potter`s Bluff end up dead at the hands of secretive locals (but not before their photos are taken several times on different cameras). James Farentino is the Sheriff who can`t figiure out why coroner Jack Albertson is so unhelpful, why his schoolteacher wife teaches kids about voodoo and why the dead victims seem to re-appear as new locals. The surprise ending is pretty stupid and nonsensical, but this is a fairly engaging slice of hoodoo that might have worked better as a TWILIGHT ZONE episode. But it has developed quite the cult following over the years. With Barry Corbin, Michael Pataki, Robert Englund and Glenn Morshower. Stan Winston provides minimal gore FX.
