For obvious reasons, the concept of underground makes me think of horror/thriller genre. There is just no way, for instance, a romantic story could or should happen below the ground. That is why, all my picks are a little scary.
So I watched the newest exclusive trailer on iTunes Trailers and I have to admit, it got my attention. I vaguely remember that Ryan has already done a horror movie, The Amityville Horror in 2005, but honestly, I didn’t watch it. Not that I don’t like Ryan, I just don’t like horror movies but Buried might be the one to change my mind.
I’m not familiar with either the director Rodrigo Cortés nor writer Chris Sparling so obviously I turned to my oh-so-fab Google and this is what I found:
“I think I might have just found my favorite film of Sundance. We’re only three or so days in, but this is at the top of my list, for now. Earlier tonight I caught the midnight world premiere of Rodrigo Cortés’ Buried, the stuck-in-a-coffin film starring Ryan Reynolds. In short, it was phenomenal. The film already has plenty of early buzz because we’ve been talking about it since Reynolds was cast last year. I already knew it was set entirely inside a coffin where Reynolds is stuck and buried, but the big question is if they could actually pull off a 90 minute film set entirely in a coffin. They did. They not only pulled it off, but it’s an amazing film.” – A. Billington
