If you're an old school horror fan, Dead and Buried is a must watch. You could categorize Gary Sherman's horror masterpiece as a "small town with a secret" film or just simply a "zombie" movie. Either way, Dead and Buried is a classic that has largely been ignored and forgotten by horror fans.
Plenty of great kills, but the most brutal death in the movie is a two-parter. In the opening scene our victim is minding his own business until he is seduced by a beautiful, mysterious girl on the beach. Just as he thinks he's about to get lucky, a handful of townsfolk savagely beat and burn him alive.
But it ain't over yet, the poor bastard survives! As our burn victim rests peacefully in the hospital with a full body cast, he gets a visit by a familiar face. The same mysterious girl from the beach, now disguised as a nurse, has come to finish what she started with a giant hypodermic needle, Lucio Fulci style! Thank you Stan Winston.
