Description by OLDIES.com:
Robert (Richard Boone), the manager of a cemetery, begins a torturous descent into insanity when people owning grave plots begin to die at an alarming rate - seemingly by his hand. On the graveyard grounds map, a black pin in a plot means death, white means life. When the pins get mixed up and strange accidents happen, Robert believes he has the power of life and death. In a hideous experiment the manager resurrects the newly buried, culminating in a night that leaves him in a state of frenetic dementia pursued by a murderer! Filmed in nine days on location at an LA cemetery, I Bury The Living is a psychological horror film with with supernatural overtones and striking expressionistic production design by Edward Vorkapich. This movie reflects the inner mind of a man losing his grip on reality.
The new manager of a cemetery (Richard Boone) begins to question reality when he places black pins instead of white in the cemetery map, seemingly causing the owners of the plots to die. As the death count rises, the mystery gets deeper and deeper, pointing to a resolution almost too strange to face. An overlooked classic of the genre.
