A small town sheriff must contend with his friends and neighbors, who are all transforming into psychotic slaughter machines.
“Bone-chilling… a singular blend of creepy atmosphere and gruesome shocks!” - All Movie Guide
Something very strange is happening in the quiet coastal village of Potters Bluff, where tourists and transients are warmly welcomed… then brutally murdered. But even more shocking is when these slain strangers suddenly reappear as normal, friendly citizens around town. Now the local sheriff (James Farentino, THE FINAL COUNTDOWN) and an eccentric mortician (Oscar winner Jack Albertson in his final film appearance) must uncover the horrific secret of a community where some terrifying traditions are alive and well… and no one is ever really DEAD & BURIED.
Robert Englund (A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET) co-stars in this genuinely chilling horror hit written by Ronald Shusett and Dan O’Bannon (ALIEN), directed by Gary A. Sherman (RAW MEAT), and featuring ultra-grisly gore effects by Oscar winner Stan Winston (ALIENS; TERMINATOR 2).
