Horror 101 – Episode 74: Dead and Buried (1981) – March 28th, 2018

It will take your breath away… all of it.

Welcome to the 74th Horror 101 episode. Get out your shit mittens, listeners. We’ve got a stinker coming right at ya! Remember we were hinting at posting a hater show? Inadvertently, this turned out to be one of those. After a listener suggested we revisit this 80s ‘gem’ called Dead and Buried, directed by Gary Sherman we decided to give it a shot and the result was a hilariously scathing review. Contrary to our usual promotion style, this episode is going to bring the anvil down on a film about the undead plaguing a small fishing town called Potter’s Bluff. Join us for our first (mostly) negative review podcast!
