Dead & Buried tells the tale of a small town and the rather unpleasant way it has begun welcoming visitors.  Naturally the local sheriff wants to put paid to this.  Unfortunately, if he keeps sticking his nose in the matter, he’s going to be the one hurt the worst of all.

This is a very creepy film.  It does have some rather massive problems, plot-wise.  Structure and the like.

With the acting and directing, though I think Dead & Buried does it’s job at getting to the viewer.  If only just.

Don’t let that stop you from giving it a go, however. I myself rather liked in the end (1.5 points).

I’m glad I watched it. Maybe you will be, too.

Overall Score: 3 total point out of a possible 4
