Review: As Above/So Below
21 hours ago
Claustrophobic and creepy, director John Erick Dowdle gives As Above/So Below a fighting chance amongst genre clichés and forced frights. Using the rudimentary “found footage” style, Dowdle transports a cast of young explorers into the catacombs underneath the streets of Paris. The unsettling location creates some wonderful atmosphere, but the narrative foregoes exploration of some provoking historical elements introduced early on and is overly predictable.
Scarlett (Perdita Weeks) is a single-minded researcher bent on finishing her deceased father’s life work of finding an ancient historical artifact. This leads her initially into a dangerous cavern in Iran that almost kills her. Following the clues from Iran, she is lead to Paris and into the forbidden section of the catacombs below the city. Looking for a secret doorway, Scarlett and her crew are trapped in the mazelike tomb leading them into the supernatural and face to face with their innermost fear. »
