Buried (2010) Review:

Again, this film adds up to the long list of film that are hard to describe as horror, but that in fact are. Here, the feelings of oppression and claustrophobia are such that it produces a tension and an unease that are worthy of most horror flicks.

At first, I was worried about a 95 min movie that happens exclusively in a coffin, but the film succeeds at grasping the viewer, and the time goes fast. There are a lot of good ideas in that film, and you’ll find yourself surprised at least a couple of time.


This film nicely adds to the ever-growing list of horror flicks that play with the concept of “people stuck at the wrong place” alongside with Frozen (people stuck on ski-lift), 347°F (people stuck on a sauna) and Sanctum or The Cave (people stuck inside caves).
