The Creators of ALIEN Bring A New Terror To Earth

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 (Academy Award winner Jack Albertson of WILLY WONKA & THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY) must uncover the horrific secret of a community where some terrifying traditions are alive and well... and no one is ever really DEAD & BURIED.

Melody Anderson (FLASH GORDON), Lisa Blount (PRINCE OF DARKNESS), and Robert Englund (A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET) co-star in this genuinely chilling horror hit written by Ronald Shusett and Dan O'Bannon (ALIEN), directed by Gary A. Sherman (POLTERGEIST III), and featuring ultra-grisly gore effects by Oscar winner Stan Winston (JURASSIC PARK). Now Blue Underground is proud to present DEAD & BURIED in an eye-popping new restoration approved by Director of Photography Steven Poster, ASC (DONNIE DARKO), scanned in 4K 16-bit from its 35mm IP, with Dolby Vision HDR and Dolby Atmos audio, and packed with Extras!

I don't think it is fair to profile DEAD & BURIED only as a horror film because its bag of tricks is almost as deep as the one used by Claude Chabrol's big classic thrillers. Also, it is hard to believe that the coastal town of Mendocino where Gary Sherman and Steven Poster shot the film is actually real because it is absolutely perfect for its story. The folks at Blue Underground have fully restored DEAD & BURIED under the supervision of its cinematographer and the end result is predictably brilliant. This upcoming 4K Blu-ray release is another huge winner, folks. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!


DEAD & BURIED remains a beautifully made exercise in tension and horror that makes the most out of its interesting cast and picture perfect locations. It's a rare horror film that is as smart as it is creepy, the perfect combination of atmosphere and 'go for the jugular' scenes of terror. Blue Underground's UHD debut continues their trend of terrific 4k transfers that, when combined with a nice selection of extras old and new, makes this an excellent package for fans of the film!

     —Rock Shock Pop

A favorite of filmmakers like Guillermo Del Toro, Dead & Buried holds up beautifully as an effective piece of atmospheric horror cinema, the likes of which are rarely made. Blue Underground does another stellar job at restoring the film with an amazing A/V presentation in UHD and a bulky and entertaining extras package to go with it, including the film's soundtrack. Like all of their releases, this is an essential purchase. Highly recommended!

Blue Underground's new 4K release of the film is something special and spectacular with NEW flawless video and audio presentations, and over two hours' worth of NEW and old bonus features, including new artwork, collectible lenticular casing, a booklet, and the soundtrack of the film on CD. It should appease every single fan of the movie and create some new ones along the way.  A MUST-OWN!

     —Ultra HD

A triumph in nearly every conceivable respect, from its sensational score to its make-up effects to its writing to its inventive visual eye... This extraordinary limited edition proves to be well worth the wait... DVD TALK COLLECTOR'S SERIES!

     —DVD Talk

A bloody blast! Dead & Buried's ensemble is what really makes this picture work, its patchwork cast of character and TV actors really bring the script to life and there isn't a weak link among them. The film definitely set the stage for Vice Squad, which is another rough unrelenting picture that is definitely worth a watch. Blue Underground kills it again with this package, that definitely feels like a final and comprehensive edition of the film.


Blue Underground presents Dead & Buried with a magnificent 2160p transfer in its original 1.85:1 aspect ratio sourced from a 16-bit 4K scan of the 35mm interpositive with Dolby Vision HDR approved by Director of Photography Steven Poster.
