As Above, So Below


Found-footage gets deep...

Director John Erick Dowdle’s (Quarantine) first-person fear ride may feature wobbly wailings and calamitous cameramen, but before you write off As Above, So Below as just another found-footage horror, it’s at least trying something new.

As much action adventure as horror, this tale of a female archaeologist (Perdita Weeks) who bumbles through a portal to hell in the catacombs of Paris boasts sporadically electrifying visuals but a frustratingly messy mythology. Not as scary as The Blair Witch Project or as claustrophobic as The Descent, AASB is an admirable Indiana Bones misfire.
