Trivia

The three-sided pyramid is a fictional place. Egyptians never built pyramids with only three sides. But that's what made this one so special. See more »

Goofs

Quotes

Holden: [on a video recording] This pyramid, unlike any structure other I've ever encountered, seems to have been built with the express purpose of keeping whatever is inside from escaping. If you come down here... bring guns.

just as expected...which was actually below normal expectations
5 March 2015 | by SeraphionSee all my reviews

The story is just another one of those lost cause adventures. But the horror setting makes it feel very devoid of any character development. All the initial story buildup doesn't even adequately put the relationships between the characters in place.All the characters seem to be doing separate acting for each scenes that the scenes don't really feel continuous, and also the mediocre editing and directing adds up to this too. The story take the sharp turn from being scientific to mythic in a very sudden move for me. The jump-scares were successful in giving shocks at me, but it didn't stir any fear in me, like what a good horror should do. The acting overall is pretty lame. Ashley Hinshaw, Dennis O'Hare and James Buckley should really take more acting lessons, especially in acting for a horror thriller. Their expressions don't really show that they were terrified, so how should we the audience feel afraid?
