You could be one of four lucky people to catch Ryan Reynolds' Buried while... buried?

BURIED, from director Rodrigo Cortés and starring Ryan Reynolds about a truck driver who inexplicably wakes up buried six feet underground, will be playing next month at this year's Fantastic Fest.

And to celebrate, they're going to bury you alive for your cinematic viewing pleasure!

As part of the "Rolling Roadshow" screening series the weekend prior to the opening of the festival, the "Rolling Roadshow of One" will enlist four random brave souls to view the entire film while actually buried! I'm going to assume there's little-to-no risk of you dying while this happens.

You can read the official press release below, and if you're morbidly curious and in the area, you can RSVP for the event RIGHT HERE.

Fantastic Fest runs September 23 - 30th in Austin, Texas.

Fantastic Fest will host a Gala Screening of Buried at The Paramount Theatre on Thursday, September 23, with Ryan Reynolds and director Rodrigo Cortés in attendance, as part of their opening night programming of the festival.

Buried, which Lionsgate will release in select theaters on September 24th and wide on October 8th, stars Reynolds as a truck driver and family man who wakes up six feet underground with no idea of who put him there or why. 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.

“Buried is the most unique and compelling thriller I have seen in years. The festival is honored to screen what we feel is going to be the ‘buzz’ film of the season,” said Fantastic Fest co-founder Tim League.

In celebration of the much buzzed about film, Fantastic Fest will also present the film as part of their “Rolling Roadshow” screening series the weekend prior to the opening of the festival. The unprecedented “Rolling Roadshow of One” goes beyond the bounds of sanity by enlisting four souls to view the entire film while buried! The Rolling Roadshow is the Alamo Drafthouse’s nationwide tour of famous movies in famous places. Previous screenings have included Close Encounters of the Third Kind at Devil’s Tower in Wyoming, Escape from Alcatraz on Alcatraz Island and more recently The Blues Brothers at Old Joliet Prison.

“The Rolling Roadshow is all about finding that unique film viewing experience with the perfect combination of movie and setting. It’s traditionally been a communal experience of seeing a film outdoors with hundreds of people. But for this event, we’re putting an even cooler twist on the concept, because some movies are perfect for seeing while buried,” said Fantastic Fest co-founder Tim League.

Under the stairs inside the projection booth at my old job for amc. If you're wondering why in the world would I be watching my own movies at a movie theater? Well it's because when you're a projectionist not only do you see stuff sometimes a week before it's released (considering you "built" the film back in those days. Now it's all digital projectors.) but you also watch each movie about 30 times before it leaves so it get's pretty boring after the first week. HONORABLE MENTION: Clerks in Red

Stayed at a cabin with 5 of my friends last year. Watched a digital copy of District 9 whilst doing laundry(needed underwear and they had already passed out drunk)on the Iphone.

I'm getting nervous just hearing about this idea. Strangest place I've ever watched a movie would be...a movie theater. When I was a teenager two friends and myself went to see a movie that had been out for a few weeks on a summer afternoon. No one else showed up. We kept changing seats and talked the whole time. There was something strange about being in a public theater, but having the private viewing experience.

I watched a movie in a tent, in Africa.

Cool Idea..

but I'd too paranoid to do this. I give anyone credit who could. Watching a movie like this in a small area has to be nerve wracking.

Extra Tidbit - On the aisle floor for Along Came Polly (out of all movies, the movie sucked).

To would be very wrong...

... and kind of obvious, to suggest the Chilean Miners get in on the PR for this movie.
