Do Not Bury Me
31 October 2014 | by AaronCapenBannerSee all my reviews

Sydney Blackmer stars as Edward Stapleton, a wealthy man who has a morbid fear of being buried alive, and after a near-fatal close call with this dreadful fate, goes to great lengths to ensure that premature burial will not happen again, since he is cataleptic. His fiancée Victorine(played by Patricia Medina) plots to kill him with her young lover Julian(played by Scott Marlowe) on their honeymoon, but the carefully prepared plan does not go as they expect... Boris Karloff and William Gordon costar as Doctor friends of Edward's who seek to protect him. Good performances and atmosphere in reasonably effective adaptation of the Edgar Allan Poe story. No real surprises, but nicely done.
