The official synopsis for Buried is as follows:
Paul (Reynolds) is a U.S. contractor working in Iraq. After an attack by a group of Iraqis he wakes to find he is buried alive inside a coffin. With only a lighter and a cell phone it’s a race against time to escape this claustrophobic death trap.
For fans of Buried heading to Comic-Con, ComingSoon have said that, if you head along to booth #3729, you can be trapped in a coffin-like space, with the video then being uploaded onto the film’s website, www.experienceburied.com
