    Dead & buried

    • Year Released: 1981
    Dead & Buried is a 1981 horror film directed by Gary Sherman, starring Melody Anderson and James Farentino. With a screenplay written by Dan O'Bannon and Ronald Shusett, the movie was initially banned as a "Video Nasty" in the UK in the early 80s, but was later acquitted of obscenity charges and removed from the Director of Public Prosecutions' list. The movie was subsequently novelized by Chelsea Quinn Yarbro. In a 1983 interview with Starburst promoting Blue Thunder, O'Bannon disowned the film (he claimed that Shusett had written the script by himself but needed O'Bannon's name on the project, and promised he'd make some changes; on seeing the finished film O'Bannon realised Shusett had done nothing of the sort, but it was too late for him to take his name off the credits). James Farentino stars as Dan Gillis, sheriff of the small New England coastal town of Potter's Bluff where, in the film's opening scene, a mob of townspeople attempt to kill a visiting photographer; he is beaten, tied to a post then set on fire. The Photographer is later killed under the sheriff and doctor's noses at the local hospital. As the story progresses, more visitors are murdered by the townspeople.

He hires actors and sets up elaborate enactments of storylines, playing Brannigan himself, while Charles takes photographs Stanley will use as models. While attending a bachelor party for his friend Tobey Rawlins (Max Showalter), Stanley becomes very drunk and proposes to a beautiful Italian girl (Lisi) who steps out of a large cake wearing a bikini.
