Richard Boone portrays a businessman who inherits the responsibility of overseeing the running of a local cemetary. Within the graveyard's utility building is a big map of all the graves, marked in black pins, as well as plots that are already purchased, marked with white pins. One day he accidently switches the pins on someone's name and that person ends up dying. At first he thinks it a coincidence, but when it happens a second, and then a third and a forth, he thinks that he's actually causing their deaths by a sort of map voodoo. I BURY THE LIVING is interesting because it's a unique idea (at least for the time in which it was made) and it's unpredictable. The film very much reminded me of a William Castle (THE TINGLER, 13 GHOSTS) movie, as it has that "feel".
Directed by Albert Band (father of Charlie "Full Moon" Band)
