If You've Seen The First One, There's Nothing New Here
4 October 2020 | by jacobconnelly-47681See all my reviews

7 years later, someone decided to make a sequel to Buried Alive, but it doesn't seem like they had any major ideas for the story since this is nothing more than a gender swapped retread of the original film with a few forced connections to the first film so that it can feel comfortable calling itself a sequel.

This time around, Laura (Ally Sheedy) discovers a strange man (Tim Matheson who returns as Clint and directs the film) at her uncle's funeral and, at the same time, she's going through the same issues he went through in the first film as her husband Randy (Stephen Caffrey) plots with his mistress, Roxanne (Tracey Needham) to kill her.

Just as in the original, this poison doesn't work, Laura gets buried alive, breaks out, and gets revenge on her husband and his mistress.

If you haven't seen the original, Buried Alive II might work better for you. It's not a poorly made movie and the acting is fine, but it pales in comparison to the original, especially when you realize it's not bringing anything new to the table.
