May 24th, 2013: I Bury the Living (1958)


Cast and Crew:  Louis Garfinkle (Story and Screenplay; Producer)

What It’s About: Newly elected cemetery board director Robert Kraft (Richard Boone) begins to believe that he has power over the life and death of the owners of cemetery plots.  Is it all a coincidence, or is something sinister at work?

Why Watch It Today?:  Three cemetery board members die on May 24th.  I Bury the Living is a fun (and mercifully short) B-movie that makes the most of its outrageous premise right up until the last five minutes or so, with a real William Castle feel from director Albert Band.
