Yesterday, I received a press release about escape artist Curtis Lovell II planning to be buried alive onstage in Grand Terrace, Calif.’s Pico Park on Halloween, and I got to wondering: What are the best buried alive scenes?

Rewatching this clip of Nick Stokes (George Eads) being rescued in CSI‘s Quentin Tarantino-directed fifth season finale made me whimper just now.

What scenes still haunt you Buffy and Bones fans? Movies are eligible, too.
