In The Fall of the House of Usher, some guys sister is buried alive. In The Black Cat, I think a cat was "buried" behind a concrete wall and was still alive, eventually getting out. That's all I can think of , considering I haven't read many of his stories.

First of all, he killed the black cat...it wasn't buried alive. The cask of amontillado the man id buried alive. The tell tale heart is most famous for having a man buried alive, yet he is really dead but the boarder is insane and believes that he can hear the mans heart beating. Also, in the pit and the pendulum a man is put in Spanish Inquizition torture chamber.
