Saw's Tobin Bell Next In Buried Alive

November 2, 2006

Sci Fi got some tidbits from Tobin Bell about his role in the upcoming film Buried Alive. The movie is a supernatural comedy that focus on "college students who unearth a spirit at a haunted lodge." Bell plays a groundskeeper at the lodge. The movie is currently being filmed and is directed by Robert Kurtzman, who did 1997's Wishmaster. Kurtzman comes from a special effects / make-up background, so it may be interesting to see where this goes, whether B-movie Evil Dead type horror or what. There is one thing I can say though, Tobin Bell is a damn fine addition to any movie out there! Here's a bit more of what Sci Fi reported:

"In Buried Alive, I play a guy who is a groundskeeper, a Vietnam-veteran groundskeeper, at a lodge," Bell said in an interview. "And these college students come to this lodge. The lodge is owned by the father of one of the college students. This guy lives in a trailer in the property. He's a Vietnam veteran, kind of an odd fellow, kind of like a housepainter."

Bell said he is particular excited about working with erstwhile special-effects guru Kurtzman, who not only wrote From Dusk Till Dawn and did animatronic effects for Hulk, but also did makeup for Bride of Reanimator, Bubba Ho-Tep and Phantasm II. "There's a lot of experience in this genre on this set," Bell said.

"Partly, it's a very funny film in a certain way," Bell said. "Buried Alive is a little scary, but also a comedy at the same time."

Sounds good to me! Buried Alive is set to have a release sometime in 2007 from distributor Odd Lot Entertainment.
