Room. A place which is defined as a secluded manifestation of all the life and non-life forms contained within it. A room, with respect to the film-vernacular, somehow terrifies us, makes us feel unsafe or incarcerated and at times, mundane. It gives us the hope that some day, we could successfully evade the adversities therein. A room could be a place that boils down to a tinier, heavier and concentrated form of all our inner insecurities. Here’s a list of top movies ever shot in one room or one location. These movies are about being tapped in a room. You can watch some of these best movies shot in one room on Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Prime.
12. Buried (2010)
Though not “exactly” set in a room, ‘Buried’ makes me feel nauseated whenever I tend to think about it. It’s a story of a truck driver (Ryan Reynolds) who wakes up inside a coffin with only a lighter, a dying cell phone and a little air to breathe. A movie that promises a dose of panic, anxiety, and disorientation combined, without a pill.

11. Phone Booth (2002)
Again, not exactly a room-based movie per se, but ‘Phone Booth’ is the answer to “Why we should mind our own business?”. A media consultant (Colin Farrell) answers a ringing phone at a public phone booth, gets stuck between a seemingly everlasting conversation whilst a sniper aims at him and a menacing death knocking his door if he intends to hang up. A noteworthy effort for the lovers of in-capacious spaces.
