While Dan O’Bannon is best known in zombie circles for his directorial debut RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD (which just missed the top 10), I think after his script for ALIEN this is his best work in both the horror and zombie genre. DEAD AND BURIED was ignored on its release but thankfully people are catching up to this flick. It plays almost like a homage to zombie films of the 30?s. Bill Lustig said this was one of the best horror films of the 80?s and he’s 100% correct.
SEE YOU ON FORTY DEUCE,
