Does the name Frank Darabont sound familiar? It should! For those of you living under a rock, this is who gave us The Mist and the highly acclaimed TV series “The Walking Dead”. Now, for the first time ever, UK audiences can catch a look at his 1990 directorial debut, Buried Alive, when it premieres on DVD October 17th courtesy of Second Sight.
From the Press Release:
From Frank Darabont, acclaimed director of The Shawshank Redemption, The Mist and The Green Mile, comes the terrifyingly claustrophobic Buried Alive. Starring Tim Matheson (Animal House) as a husband who is buried alive by his cheating wife Jennifer Jason Leigh (The Machinist), this nail biting horror comes to DVD for the first time ever on 17 October 2011.
Hard-working construction company owner Clint is married to Joanna, but little does he know she’s having an affair with a doctor and the pair are plotting to kill him to get a hefty insurance payout. One night Joanne injects Clint with poison and, with the help of her lover, sets about burying him in a shallow grave. But there’s one slight problem: Clint isn’t dead!
Buried Alive is the ultimate revenge movie from the creator-director of award-winning TV zombie thriller “The Walking Dead”.
If that isn’t reason enough to give this new angle on a familiar but terrifying concept a try, then I don’t know what is! Get your pre-order in below.
