The official trailer for Ryan Reynolds new thriller, Buried, was recently released attached to A Nightmare on Elm Street. This low budget indie film caught the eye of Lionsgate at the Sundance film festival this year when it won over audiences with its unique story and dare I say set design? Not since The Descent have we really gotten a film to capture the essence of a classic case of claustrophobia.
Synopsis: Paul Conroy is not ready to die. But when he wakes up 6 feet underground with no idea of who put him there or why, life for the truck driver and family man instantly becomes a hellish struggle for survival. Buried with only a cell phone and a lighter, his contact with the outside world and ability to piece together clues that could help him discover his location are maddeningly limited. Poor reception, a rapidly draining battery, and a dwindling oxygen supply become his worst enemies in a tightly confined race against time- fighting panic, despair and delirium, Paul has only 90 minutes to be rescued before his worst nightmare comes true.
