What’s that? A guy’s daughter has been Taken? He has a certain set of skills and won’t let anyone stop him from finding her? He is a super badass? *Eyes narrow* Hmm. This all seems a little familiar. Oh wait, »

As Above/So Below
The first Dowdle brothers collaboration to hit theaters since the 2008 [Rec] remake Quarantine, As Above/So Below is well worth the wait. Following a group of explorers in search of the Philosopher’s Stone, As Above/So Below was largely shot on location in the Catacombs beneath Paris, and the film’s found footage shooting style convincingly places viewers inside the skull-lined tunnels where shadows threaten to consume you at every turn.
Claustrophobic jump scares, the psychological horror of having your past literally come back to haunt (and potentially kill) you, and the creepily crafted screenplay from John Erick and Drew Dowdle had me anxiously tugging at my shirt collar throughout most of the film’s 93-minute runtime. The scariest part for me? The mysterious wide-eyed woman that Edwin Hodge’s camera-holding character Benji keeps seeing. Her lingering looks into the lens still give me chills.
