a thriller with a twist at the end
13 June 2012 | by trashgangSee all my reviews

Perfect example to trick the unknown buyers of flicks. Buried (2010) was a must see, so they tried to copy the title, face it, coffin has a lot to do with buried. On the other hand the sleeve also looks very closely to Buried.

But the story is something completely different. We do have two people who are buried in a coffin but there's more going on. It looked promising with the masked villain but once he changed his hood for shades it became ridiculous. And the acting wasn't worth watching too.

Still if you do like thrillers with a plot change then you may like it but it did have an overall low budget look. I just wasn't involved into the characters. No suspense at all just sitting there and thinking at the end, okay but nothing special. I could have known it, it was here already on the sale shelves when it came out.
