Only trouble the drug overdose they give him doesn’t kill him. Lucky for Clint he’s buried in a cheap wooden box and he unburies himself. Just remember, Hell hath no fury like a man buried alive!

There are very few PG-13 horror films that I would recommend. “Buried Alive” is one of those rare gems. It also spawn inspired a sequel as well as two adaptations. “Buried Alive II” (1997), “Buried Alive” (2007), and “Buried Alive” (2011).
