Music to Make Horror Movies By: Dead and Buried

Director Gary Sherman has always displayed a sense of social urgency and class in his work. In 1981’s Dead and Buried, he examined the destructiveness of totalitarianism amid the face melting special effects and bloodshed. He also showed true style by using big band tunes to underscore some of the more realistic mayhem. Of special interest to songbird aficionados, he chose Doris Day’s beloved rendition of Sentimental Journey to compliment a joyful moment with Jack Albertson’s magnetic William Dobbs.

Day, who died in 2019, and Albertson, who finished out his long film career with Dead and Buried, definitely are a smart team-up. Both appeared together in 1961’s Lover Come Back to Me, making this fun, macabre mash-up all the more meaningful.
