5.0 out of 5 stars Great TV movie - cheesy fun! 22 Jun 2011
Firstly, the product description Amazon have provided is incorrect: the plot involves Clint, an every day working man and his wife Joanna, who is having an affair with a doctor. They plot to kill Clint and get the insurance money. They poision Clint, and he is buried alive (as the title may have given away). What follows is a set of circumstances that teeter on the edge of plausibility... i'll say no more so as to not spoil the fun.
I first saw this TV movie in the 1990s, and have loved it ever since. My VHS recording is looking a bit sorry these days, so I was over the moon to see it had finally been released on DVD.
I feel like I have to qualify this by warning that this is a cheesy TV movie - don't expect a masterpiece. The plot is ludicrous, and it is fairly cheaply made. Still, it benefits from a damn fine cast (Atherton is especially great as the doctor), and some sturdy direction. The major plus for me is just how much fun this - if you go in expecting the Shawshank Redemption, you'll be disappointed. Take it for what it is, and enjoy.

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
BURIED ALIVE is so cleverly constructed, with a raw and heightened sense of claustrophobia. Clint, who is the central protagonist, is consistently watchable - whether he's the happily married man, in an intense fight for survival or plotting revenge.

The most appealing factor of this film is that in spite of its dark subject matter, we're following Clint on a mission of justice and though his actions are morally ambiguous, they are also completely understood. He's betrayed in the worst possible way by someone he loves.

The message that I took from this film is that there are serious consequences to our actions, and they demand that we should take responsibility for them - however high the price may be. A well-paced and rather frightening gem of a film.

No extras, but the movie shows the best quality possible.
For a made-for-TV movie, the image show really very impressive, remastered from the original negative prints. Great!
