As Above, So Below

"According to mythology, that's the inscription over the gates of hell." Following in the footsteps of The Descent and throwing in a little Raiders of the Lost Ark, the new horror film As Above, So Below from Devil director John Erick Dowdle and his co-writing brother Drew Dowdle will make you feel a little claustrophobic. A team of explorers go looking in an ancient catacomb under the streets of Paris to unearth one of the largest mass graves in history. But of course, they get trapped, and stumble upon a much darker secret in the underground system of secret caves and tunnels. This looks pretty damn spooky. Watch below!

Here's the first trailer for John Erick Dowdle's As Above, So Below straight from Legendary:

As Above, So Below

As Above, So Below is directed by John Erick Dowdle from a script he co-wrote with his brother Drew Dowdle (both of Quarantine and Devil). Miles of twisting catacombs lie beneath the streets of Paris, the eternal home to countless souls. When a team of explorers ventures into the uncharted maze of bones, they uncover the dark secret of what this city of the dead was meant to contain. Perdita Weeks, Ben Feldman, and Edwin Hodge star in the film which Legendary Pictures and Universal Pictures release on August 15th.

    doesn't look too scary

    Looks kind of neat actually

    The premise is not too bad but they show too much in the trailer.

      Ugh - they show too much in all trailers these days.
      • Nash
        Indeed, and that's a mistake. My curiosity for this movie declines. So perhaps I'll watch it on Netflix or cable, but I am not likely to invest money in a ticket...
  • TheOct8pus
    It has a bit of a "Nightmare on Elm" street that the character's worst fears come to kill them....
  • cuckoozey
    Looks like the feature length film of your average Halloween haunted house attraction. Pass.
    Caves. Nope. Nope. Knope!
  • Trey Wilson
    Eh, The Descent did it better.
    • ErrorSapiens
      My thoughts exactly.

    Actually looks pretty good, and I'm not much into horror movies. I like the fact that it has that haunted house vibe to it as stated below. No horror movie will get me to see it in the theaters, but I'll definitely catch it after it comes out on DVD.
  • Jim Dawkins
    This actually looks pretty good.

    Plot Twist: THEY'RE ALL DEAD! I think. I don't know. Watch the movie.
  • backwardsprogress
    What happened to the smoke monster?
  • syntaxterror
    Looks like a poor man's The Descent. Also Quarantine was pretty much a shot for shot remake of Rec, so I can't give then much credit... yet.

    Dr Satan :)
  • OfficialJab
    I want to see Living Dark instead, when does that actually come out?
  • Wow, looks pretty intense. This must be what it's like to go to a party at Glen Beck's house.

      just replace the skulls with dildoes of all shapes,sizes and colors and I think you may be onto something
