Former Wishmaster Is Buried Alive

Dimension Films has acquired “Buried Alive,” a horror pic from f/x maven Robert Kurtzman (“Wes Craven’s Wishmaster”) reports Variety.

Story centers on a sorority hazing ritual that takes students to an abandoned house; it also involves “an empty coffin, a fatal curse and a ghost who seeks vengeance on his family’s bloodline.

Tobin Bell (“Saw”) and Terence Jay star in the pic and Art Monterastelli penned the screenplay.

Kurtzman served as visual effects supervisor on “Hostel” and “The Rage,” and co-wrote Robert Rodriguez’s “From Dusk Till Dawn.”
