There are very few movies that grip you with their intriguing drama even though shot in a single set. ‘BURIED’ is just the right example that holds you up with all thrill and moments of anxiety when Paul Conroy (played by Ryan Reynolds) finds himself inside a coffin with few things by his side.
Interred alive, Paul tries to survive with whatever he has in that eight-by-eight coffin. Spanish director Rodrigo Cortes presents the hostage crisis in Iraq in such a way that it will surely give you chest-crunching moments.
The movie is all about the mobile phone and Paula’s conversation with a few people outside the coffin world. Lastly, BURIED does not fall on to the genre of horror rather a thriller with suspense tagged right till the very end.
If you can take the sheer, asphyxiating, chest-crushing suspense and terror, then this one is for you. After watching this flick you may even want to hit Google with all kinds of queries like ‘how long can you live buried alive’.

His battle with time races high if the mobile phone battery dies fast or the oxygen level decreases inside the coffin. In panic, desperation, and restlessness, Paul has only 90 minutes to be able to be saved, before the worst nightmare comes true …”
