Trapped in coffins, and given clues, the victims must figure out who is behind their situation and figure out a way to survive. On the surface two people follow a trail of clues and try to save their friends by locating the killer before it is to late.
Mixing elements of “SAW” with some original content, “Buried Alive” is a pleasant enough diversion and has enough to keep you entertained. The DVD features deleted scenes, commentaries, and a making of segment.

The classic Comedy of The Three Stooges has never been better and every eye gouging, head slapping moment is captures in the Three Stooges Collection Volume Four which looks at 21 shorts from 1943-1945.
From the classic War Time segments such as Back From The Front and Dizzy Pilots to the outrageous Micro-Phonies, the collection has been digitally remastered and concludes what is for many the Golden Age of the group as sadly health problems lead to the absence of Curly soon after due to a stroke, which affected some of his performances in the later material in the collection.
That being said, the timeless comedy never goes out of style and the collection of one of the greatest comedy teams in history is not to be missed.
