Motion Picture Purgatory: Buried

It didn’t make much of a dent at the box office, but for those who did see it (critics and fans alike), Buried provided an intense tour de force performance from star Ryan Reynolds. Now it’s Trembles’ turn to weigh in on the film with his Motion Picture Purgatory review.

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.

Buried is directed by Rodrigo Cortes and stars Ryan Reynolds, Stephen Tobolowsky, Erik Palladino, and Samantha Mathis.

He must be trolling in his grave!
