Lots of slow-paced shots of girls crawling through concrete corridors...
14 August 2009 | by nekojiru67See all my reviews

A girl and her ex-con boyfriend are convinced to join a group of thieves planning to break into a sealed Depression-era crypt and loot the bodies of their jewelry. However the crypt just might be haunted...

There's nothing spectacular about this low-budget horror film, but it somehow ends up being a lot more entertaining than it has any right to be. The plot is incredibly light for its hour and twenty minute running time, so there are an excessive amount of "girls crawling through crypt corridor" scenes. The director doesn't skip ahead, even when the thieves are backtracking through areas we've already seen, and those sequences can get dull. (Short on plot though it is, I did notice at least one plot hole.) If you like cleavage, however, plenty is on display. A bit more cleavage than gore, perhaps unfortunately.

The acting isn't as bad as a previous comment would have you believe. Sarah Oh (PJ) and Abra May (Gina) are the standouts and luckily it's them who get the most screen time. Once the girls get into the crypt and start looking scared, there are no line deliveries bad enough to make you roll your eyes.

The sets are pretty incredible, if obviously too new to be built during the Great Depression, and unlike most low budget films they are actually lit very well. In fact sometimes the crypt corridors are a bit too bright - I think a little bit of darkness might have made for a scarier mood.

You've seen the flickering ghosts here in a billion other movies, so don't expect to have any nightmares after watching The Crypt, unless perhaps you're claustrophobic.

And yes, there is a brief topless shot of the beautiful Sarah Oh, which for some might make this rental worth catching all by itself.
