If you thought the found-footage horror film sub-genre was entirely played out, think again. As long as people keep paying to see these films, and as long as the films remain incredibly cheap to make, they’re not going anywhere. So, if you don’t want to see any more, stop going to them.
The latest entry into the sub-genre is As Above, So Below, the first trailer for which was released today. It follows a team of archaeological explorers who venture down into the catacombs beneath Paris in search of hidden chambers. The result may or may not be the discovery of the gates of hell, or something like that. Whatever is down there, it’s scary and apparently angry about being disturbed.
As Above, So Below actually looks like a pretty solid entry into the sub-genre, although whether or not it can maintain the found footage element is slightly questionable. »
