Fantastic Fest, a film festival in Austin, Texas, has put a whole new spin on getting into a movie. Fantastic Fest screened the new movie 'Buried,' to four people buried alive inside coffins!

The four people were selected from a group of entrants all vying for a spot in the coffins. The winners were blindfolded and driven out to a random location. Once there, they were buried alive inside coffins equipped with LCD TVs that showed the movie. Stats for Frightening Screening Stunts Trending: Older & Warm
