Just watching this for first time. Bit bored with it already actually.
Surely his phone battery will be running out with all these calls. I know mine does, even if fully charged that morning!

I haven't seen this, but in a similar theme Danish film The Vanishing was a creepy film, especially if like me your claustrophobic and have a fear of being buried alive. The Hollywood remake The Vanishing should be avoided like the plague.

I loved this film at the cinema. It helped that when I saw it, there was literally only me and another person there and he was way up the back so it was pin-drop quiet and it let me really get in to it.

The ending really did me in

Shocking ending imo. So simple yet very effective.

A great example of how ITV's presentation can totally ruin a film. DoG, frequent ad-breaks, trails, sponsor bumpers and even a celeb news bulletin half-way through!! Short of taking a shit on the print I don't see now they could have more comprehensively ****ed it.

Never liked this film, good concept badly executed with lazy scripting and terrible casting.

There's a band called The Hell and on their facebook page every sunday night they would spoil a film and one week was buried but I held off looking at it because I hadn't seen the film yet and I was hoping for a different ending

Found this captivating at times and the ending was good. Decent watch.

Can't imagine it lends itself well to the use of ad breaks, what with its need to build atmosphere steadily throughout the 90 minutes.

Great concept and a strange cinematic experience. Imagining the guys situation is pretty scary. I was engrossed from start to finish-though I didn't actually see the finish perched as it was after the credits


This is one film that needs showing without any interruption.

I had a similar experience with "Sunshine", when there was actually only me as an audience. Its weird but fascinating experience especially as some of the effects in Sunshine are quite stunning and I was completely lost in it.
