As Above, So Below

When a team of explorers ventures into the catacombs that lie beneath the streets of Paris, they uncover the dark secret that lies within this city of the dead and within theirselves.

No. Not impressed. The idea and the plot is good but the execution is poor. With the use of the characthers own cameras you loose a lot of atmosphere and good scares. The scary moments tend to be unsurprising and sometimes plain comical. It’s too bad. This could have been a really great horror in those claustrophobic surroundings. Good ending though.
