A Terrifyingly Effective Modern Horror
28 October 2019 | by boris_unanimateSee all my reviews

I enjoyed this superb movie from start to finish, which is usually hard to find, a movie that keeps your attention with every moment. It has several predictable, but still very effective jumpscares. It starts out like a modern Indiana Jones/Tomb Raider found footage thriller, but it gets weirder and more bizarre once the story goes underground and into the supernatural.

The movie has its share of exposition, but it never beats you over the head with it. This is a good mix of The Descent meets Indiana Jones meets Uncharted meets Baskin, and if you enjoyed any of those, you will love AASB. Its message was similar to Jodorowsky's The Holy Mountain. An enthralling and unforgettable experience unless you're scared of tight spaces and graveyards. Claustrophobics, beware!
