[Netflix] Movie Review: As Above So Below

Wikipedia:

As Above, So Below is a 2014 American horror film written and directed by John Erick Dowdle and co-written by his brother Drew. It is presented as found footage of a documentary crew’s experience exploring the Catacombs of Paris. The film was produced by Legendary Pictures and distributed by Universal Pictures, making it the first film in Legendary’s deal with Universal.The film was released on August 29, 2014, and stars Perdita Weeks, Ben Feldman, Edwin Hodge, François Civil, Marion Lambert, and Ali Marhyar.

This is one of those movies that starts out a bit like Indiana Jones. The main character is off on a dramatic search for a very important historical item that takes her to the ends of Earth until she happens upon THE clue. The one that tells her exactly where historical item should be. So of course she has to go.

If you’re not familiar with alchemical references and lore this movie might make slightly less sense to you, but the horror aspect is still quite applicable even if you don’t know the background. The group gets lost, people go missing, and strange characters arise to provide misleading information, and of course they are in a maze.

It’s been a little bit between the time I watched the movie and made this post, but at this point I have an itch to go back and rewatch this one.

Get it on Amazon
