An Intense thriller inside a coffin.

))Spoilers! )) This intense thriller about a man buried alive only with limited tools to survive is very well made and entertaining. The whole film is the main characters point of view, inside the coffin. He makes contact with people on his cell phone . The whole film has the character in peril, he even encounters a snake attack. It's defintley not for the faint of heart or for anyone claustrophobic as he has limited space to breathe. The whole concept is very shocking but it's defintley a film worth checking out.The film has many swears, not exactly a strong amount but their there and they may not be 'violence' as per say but the whole movie is intense. I recommend this film for teens and up (15+)
