Dimension Films has acquired Buried Alive, a horror film from special-effects master Robert Kurtzman, according to Variety.

Kurtzman directed Wes Craven's Wishmaster and was a visual effects supervisor on genre films including Hostel and The Rage. He also was a screenwriter on Robert Rodriguez's From Dusk Till Dawn.

Tobin Bell (Saw) and Terence Jay star in the movie, which is close to completion. Art Monterastelli wrote the screenplay.

The 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."
