    ★★★★★

    A creepy, atmospheric horror film from 1981, Dead and Buried is an underrated gem. 

    James Farentino plays Dan Gillis, the sherif of the small coastal town of Potters Bluff where out of towers have been turning up dead. 

    I’m not going to tell you anything more than that, lest I spoil the movie. This is a film best viewed not knowing much at all and is filled with twists and turns, many you will see coming and a few you…

    ★★★★½

    I think I need to watch this again before I go into detail, suffice to say, yet another stellar film from Jordan Peele.

    More straight up horror than 'Get Out', however still a lot of subtext and stuff I probably missed.

    The only criticism I have is that I would have liked a more ambiguous ending, rather than spelling out exactly what happened in years past.

    Other than that, I loved it!

    Some great ideas here, however ultimately thwarted by a super rushed pace. Hard to care for anyone if you don’t really know them.
