Top 20 Claustrophobia Movies 

March 29, 2013
In the new film Detour, Jackson Alder (Neil Hopkins) finds himself trapped by a mudslide inside his car, alone. It takes intense mental control, as well as purposeful distraction, to escape that kind of claustrophobic, panic-inducing situation (View it in iTunes.) So should you ever be in such tight quarters, you'll need plenty of material with which to distract yourself -- such as a list of the most claustrophobic movies to ever come out of Hollywood. By Diana Clarke.
Buried (2010):

Cocky beefcake Ryan Reynolds gets taken down a peg: In Buried, he wakes up in a wooden box, six-feet underground with only 90 minutes to escape (if you were wondering, the movie is 94 minutes). As a civilian truck driver based in Iraq, Reynolds, as Paul Conroy, only has these MacGyver-y tools: a lighter, a flask, a flashlight, a knife, glowsticks, a pen and a mobile phone. You know how people react when their phone only has 20 percent battery life left? Now, imagine that happening to Reynolds in this scenario.
