hy do I keep doing these things to myself? Once again, I thoughtlessly rented a horror video with the big cardboard box instead of the little one. But this time, God himself had a hand in my choice. Yes, today, my friends, I rented "Buio Omega".
Okay, the title I rented this under was "Buried Alive", and it was in a nearby Blockbuster, so it can't be that underground. The plot involves a taxidermist, played by Kieran Canter(who was later in porn movies), who lives with his maid in a mansion and seems to like torturing and killing women. He also has some trouble letting go of his girlfriend, as he keeps her around long after she's dead.
Now the good part: This is disgusting. Let's see what we have. For starters, we've got our lovely resident taxidermist ripping off a prostitute's toenail's with a pair of pliers. He guts her later on, which I read was a real body. I believe it, those wacky underground Italian filmmakers. He bangs his dead girlfriend a few times, and in my favorite scene, he engages in sex with a hooker while his dead girlfriend lies next to them under the blankets. You see, Kieran is a necrophiliac, which gets our star into some zany situations. He also eats a heart for no apparent reason, and actual cremation and autopsy scenes were used.
I'm ashamed to say this, but I didn't have much truble sitting through it. Aside from the bad "Psycho" like ending, it will hold your interest, and the story isn't that bad, but this still is, by all means, a bad movie. It was directed by Joe D'Amato(that's all some people need to know), who directed Kieran in a few porn films of his own afterwards. If you want something that isn't neseccarily good, but will stick in your mind for years to come, you can't go wrong with "Buried Alive". And for you lovebirds out there, this would make a great double bill with "Make Them Die Slowly", another Italian gore movie which I will review shortly. Enjoy!
