We live in truly odd times, so why not ride the wave and tack on some additional existential dread with cinema's various takes on the end of the world. From the calm, grim acceptance of On the Beach to the shrieking takeover of Invasion of the Body Snatchers to the playful road trip in Seeking a Friend for the End of the World (pictured), we all handle oblivion a little differently.
Directed by Rodrigo Cortés / Rodrigo Cortes
Psychological Thriller - Rated R - 95 Minutes - 2010
Want to be alone with Ryan Reynolds? It could get claustrophobic and frustrating. He plays a truck driver and family man who awakens to find himself buried alive in a coffin, where he spends 90 minutes, the length of the film, trying to get out. This thriller adds more tension in the confined space as his air supply dwindles, and he’s left with only a lighter, plus a cell phone to contact the outside world.
