Creepy as hell (see what I did there?!)
26 February 2021 | by Just-A-Girl-14See all my reviews

I enjoyed this movie. I wish it was easier to find horror movies that are as creepy as this one. Most horror films lack a good plot. Not this one. I enjoyed the archeological/mystical aspect of it. Basically it's an exploration expedition going really wrong. I have to say I felt really claustrophobic watching them crawl in those scary tunnels. I also liked the reference to Dante's Inferno. It's sort of a modern way to tell the story. It wasn't a perfect movie but it was really good. The acting, filming and direction were good and so was the writing. I also liked the fact that it was not too gory. Most horror movies are filled with stupid characters, cheap jump scares and lots of blood and gore. Here we have an interesting plot and well written characters and even though some of their decisions weren't the smartest (like going in there in the first place) most were justified (like when they had no other choice). All in all I thought the movie was pretty good and definitely worth a watch.
