Pre-Halloween Horrors! week continues at Trailers from Hell, today with director and TFH creator Joe Dante introducing famed B-director Albert Band's bare-bones chiller "I Bury the Living," starring TV star Richard Boone and Theodore Bikel ("My Fair Lady").

This low budget graveyard chiller was producer-director Albert Band's second outing and remains one of his most accomplished in a prolific career that fostered many films by his sons, producer Charles and composer Richard. Morbid, paranoid and imaginatively directed, it found a small audience on tv over the years but hasn't exactly penetrated the zeitgeist.
