Blu-ray Review - Buried Alive


Juvenile delinquent cinema meets the horror rush of the 1980s in "Buried Alive," which takes its influence from the works of Edgar Allan Poe. There's a black cat, sounds emerging from mysterious places, and the spread of madness, but the feature isn't committed to the finer points of gothic terror. It's more of a slasher-like endeavor, exploring the developing nightmare of an all-girl school terrorized by a masked madman with a fetish for killing people slowly, getting off on the memory of their expiration. Director Gerard Kikoine hopes to add some gasoline to the viewing experience, investing in a hyperactive style for the picture, aiming to generate sensorial overload to best capture the feeling of a psychological break. Such hustle is appreciated, but the effort's storytelling skills leave much to be desired, with "Buried Alive" soon breaking down into seemingly random scenes of character interactions and horrible events.
