Dead & Buried

 (1981)

Dead & Buried Blu-ray offers decent video and mediocre audio in this still overall recommended Blu-ray release

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) and an eccentric mortician (Jack Albertson) must uncover the horrific secret of a community where some terrifying traditions are alive and well… and no one is ever really dead & buried.

For more about Dead & Buried and the Dead & Buried Blu-ray release, see Dead & Buried Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Starring: James Farentino, Melody Anderson, Jack Albertson, Dennis Redfield, Nancy Locke
Director: Gary Sherman

Dead & Buried Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Blue Underground digs up Dead & Buried for Blu-ray release, providing viewers with a 1080p, 1.78:1-framed transfer. Noise is prevalent over the opening credits sequence, and indeed, the entire feature. The print also exhibits plenty of nicks and speckles, but never to any detriment of the enjoyment of the picture. Colors are dim and dull; the film is littered with nighttime sequences and poorly-lit interior shots, contrasting with the pure white buildings and bright sequences seen during the daylight hours. Clothing is often dark gray and black as well. Still, make no mistake, Dead & Buried looks fine on Blu-ray; it comes from a different era, with no flashy visuals, just a dark, gritty look that translates well to high definition. This release does improve upon the level of detail, texture, and depth in many shots than seen in previous releases. The many nighttime scenes rely on strong blacks, and they do not disappoint, generally. A small amount of detail may be lost in them, but considering the picture is very dark to begin with, and detail is only moderately good considering the source, the dark scenes look about as good as they may. Flesh tones hold up well, and the detail in Stan Winston's effects shots offers plenty of grisly goodness. Dead & Buried won't be remembered as a particularly great transfer, but the results here are more than satisfactory.


Dead & Buried Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.5 of 5

Dead & Buried features two 7.1 lossless soundtracks, one each of the DTS-HD MA and the Dolby TrueHD variety. Neither track is particularly aggressive, and neither stands above the other in terms of overall quality. Music and dialogue are the primary elements of the track, both of which are presented with a quality front-channel presence, sometimes accompanied by very subtle rear-channel environmental support. Despite a mostly front-channel presence, the track never feels cramped, as it spreads it legs and roams over to the front right and left speakers with decent directional effects and music. The track offers a few hints of good, solid lows, particularly in the form of a nautical foghorn that adds a spooky, foreboding presence to the proceedings, making for the best sound effect in the film. There is really not much more to offer with this one; it's a simple, to-the-point mix that supports the film in fine fashion.
