It's telling that its normally seasoned cast (Copley, Kretschmann, and Ho) look like awful actors with the limp dialogue, banal action, and apathetic mystery trying to support its gimmicky plot line. A film like Rodrigo Cortes' Buried would be gimmicky if it wasn't pulled off with prime suspense and tension, much like Hitchcock's concepts. Open Grave never transcends its idea into something special.
It starts as an intriguing mystery and actually pays off in a clever way that makes perfect sense. Unfortunately, it lacks the interesting characters and dialogue to make its solid premise something great. Still, I've never seen a movie that opens with everyone having amnesia and trying to figure out what's going on actually lead to an intelligent conclusion, so I have to give it points for that.
Un buon lavoro,che spazia in vari sottogeneri e riesce a mantenere alta l'attenzione dello spettatore sulle possibili cause del "mistero".Purtroppo le prove attoriali sono davvero mediocri(la bionda è devastante) ed il finale è scritto chiaramente col culo.Una buona idea di base che poteva avere un risultato nettamente migliore.
