[Podcast] Dead and Buried — Episode 86 — Decades of Horror 1980s

“Welcome to Potter’s Bluff” – the tagline for  Dead and Buried  hides the horror behind an innocuous invitation. Once you arrive to this coastal town, the horror soon begins with one of the more underrated horror films from 1981. Thomas Mariani, Doc Rotten and Christopher G. Moore tackle another gruesome  horror film from the 1980s. Guest-host, The Black Saint (Horror News Radio) joins the crew to discuss Dead and Buried.

Decades of Horror 1980s
Episode  86 — Dead and Buried  (1981)

Writers  Jeff Millar & Alex Ster and Ronald Shusett & Dan O’Bannon (sort of)  team up with director  Gary Sherman to give its audience an extended Twilight Zone inspired tale of horror and paranoia.  James Farentino is the sheriff of Potter’s Bluff who stumbles upon a series of events that unearth  Jack Albertson’s terrifying hidden agenda. And his wife, Melody Anderson, has secrets of her own. The cast includes  Lisa Blount (Prince of Darkness), Robert Englund (A Nightmare on Elm Street) & Michael Pataki (Dracula’s Dog). The film also includes early special effects from FX guru Stan Winston.

The Black Saint leaps into the forefront as he shares how much Dead and Buried means to him and his experiences first seeing the film in the theaters in 1981. The Grue-crew recap and review the film, diving into the actors, the effects, the story and stories behind the story. Check out the review of Dead and Buried  from Thomas, Doc and Christopher along with guest-host The Black Saint.

Kudos to the band Neon Devils for our new intro and outro song “Bone Chillin.”
