When we look back on all of the great American Presidents of the past, one can’t help but wonder about their lives and what they are really like behind their exterior. What lessons did they learn that would make them capable of leading a nation? What if we could see those moments that would inform the kind of President they would become? What if we could watch their life happen with the hindsight of »

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.

Director: John Erick Dowdle
Running Time: 93 minutes
John Erick Dowdle returns with his third found footage feature, As Above, So Below. A film which seems to have been built around a fantastic location, rather than a story. This time we follow a young professor out to finish her dad’s work by discovering the Philosopher’s Stone. Last I’d heard Dumbledore had had it destroyed. Oh how wrong I was!
Perdita Weeks plays the central character of Scarlett, a feisty and adventurous heroine who gives the perfect mix between Indiana Jones-esque ballsy exploration skills, and obsessive and stubborn horror icon who needs to know when to quit. Notable from the outset is just how exposition heavy the dialogue is, but Weeks manages to make most of it seem organic by channelling her character’s passionate side towards her job. »
