Trailer: Buried

The trailer for Ryan Reynolds new thriller Buried went live on iTunes today. And it looks pretty freakin' intense!

Buried tells the story of Paul, 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 for Paul to escape this claustrophobic death trap.

The preview doesn't show much, but it sure builds some suspense and tension. My heart was in my throat by the end of it. This is one I will certainly seek out upon release.

Watch the trailer here and tell us what you think!


Welcome to Film Reviews From the Basement: The Blog

A couple of aging movie geeks share their thoughts, feelings and opinions about offbeat, obscure and often downright bad films old and new . . . with a little help from their friends.

That's us. We're Jason and Shawn and we come at you from The Basement every two weeks with reviews of offbeat, obscure and often crappy movies courtesy of our podcast on podOmatic and iTunes.

We've been active since late January and have about 10 episodes under our belt. We've also been posting on a Facebook group page and tweeting. This blog will be an extension of that.

We hope you will come back often and leave a comment or three. Look for us to really ramp this up during the coming week.

Until then: thanks for visiting and we'll see you soon . . . in The Basement.

Good night, and good luck.

Jason and Shawn
