Synopsis: An intrepid archaeologist, a cameraman and a team of rebellious French cavers journey into the catacombs of Paris, attempting to prove the existence of the mythical Philosopher’s Stone.
This year has had more than its fair share of bad found footage horror films, with Devil’s Due and Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones stinking their way through cinemas. However, in the shape of claustrophobic chiller As Above, So Below, set underneath the city of Paris, there’s something a lot more interesting to keep the genre alive.
