If you've seen any of director Neil Marshall's films -- Dog Soldiers, The Descent, Doomsday -- you've been looking forward to this movie, whether you know it or not. The man does great horror and over-the-top action, so the idea of yet another movie from him about characters in hostile territory, fighting for survival, seems like a sure-fire winner.

Claustrophobia is a commonly used tool in a movie director's bag of tricks. Even when the plot doesn't specifically feature tight spaces, the walls of any room can be made to seem like they're pressing in on the film's characters. So when you actually have a plot that revolves around being locked in a wooden box six feet underground, things can get a little hairy, for both the character and the viewer. Buried has the guts to put Ryan Reynolds in a box for the majority of the film, and as such it may hold the claustrophobia crown, but here are some other movies we wouldn't recommend to those who prefer wide-open spaces.
