Buried Alive begins in complete darkness with the discovery that Rick, a handsome 20 year-old has been buried alive. Illuminated by only the flame of a cigarette lighter, the details of the scene come into focus from the point of view of a night vision camera, embedded in the corner of the coffin, capturing Rich’s every movement. On his left, an ominous warning: SAVE YOUR BREATH. It turns out he is just one of many victims trapped in coffins. Above ground, siblings Melanie and Travis work frantically to piece together information gleaned from found footage and online diaries hidden on the web. They each have a secret stake tied to the victims’ fates, and in the ultimate race against time, they frantically work to unravel the mystery and discover the locations of the buried coffins before it is too late.
