Ryan Reynolds and My Biggest Fear...

Aside from something happening to my family, my biggest fear is being buried alive. It goes back to when I was a kid and saw this movie where this girl was kidnapped and buried alive with enough oxygen and electricity to keep her alive for a specific amount of time. It stayed with me to the point where I'm afraid I'll die but won't really be dead but medical personal will think I am. Crazy I know but...

So what does the ultra hot Ryan Reynolds have to do with this? He's living out my worst nightmare. In a movie.

Here's the description ~ Paul Conroy is not ready to die. But when he wakes up 6 feet underground with no idea of who put him there or why, life for the truck driver and family man instantly becomes a hellish struggle for survival. Buried with only a cell phone and a lighter, his contact with the outside world and ability to piece together clues that could help him discover his location are maddeningly limited.

It was shown at the Sundance Film Festival in January and is due for nation wide release this October. I don't know if I'll see this in the theater. If I do, dh is definitely coming with me. That man can make me laugh at the oddest times and with this movie, I might need that.

So what's your biggest fear and would you see a movie based on it?


  1. My biggest fear is being burned alive, and whenever I see a movie or tv show upon that certain circumstance, I tend to have nightmares!! So I try to avoid it as much as I can!

  2. I remember going on a school excursion to a little 'olden days' township, and we visited the graveyard. Our tour guide told us that back in the day people would rig up a bell-pull when they buried their dead... so that if they accidentally buried someone alive, they could ring the bell and notify the groundskeeper (this was apparently how the saying "saved by the bell" originated). I heard that story when I was about 8-years-old and its stayed with me ever since.
    Totally legit fear, IMO.

  3. OMG...that is exactly my fear and it is because of that same movie!!!! Where the little girl was buried alive.

    I went downstairs to tell my parents goodnight and got caught up in the movie right when she was kidnapped and then buried. I have had that same fear ever since then!!!

    That and waking up in the middle of an operation and not being able to tell anyone I was awake!!!

  4. LoR ~ I think I must be sick because it's my biggest fear but I'm seriously considering seeing this movie.

    Danielle ~ that's fascinating. I had no idea that's where the saying came from. See, now I'd be afraid my bell would be broken. LOL

    Kara ~ How weird is that! I was watching it, knew I shouldn't but my parents were out for the night. My older brothers were suppose to be watching me. :)

  5. Oh geez! I don't care how much I like Reynolds, I won't watch this. :( It would give me nightmares for days... I fear drowning... which is suffocation... which translates into this too. Nope, I was having a problem just watching the trailer. I'm a wuz. :D

  6. Hils ~ you're not a wuz, smart, that's what you are. :) I've never been afraid of drowning but can totally understand how that would relate to this.
