    This is one hell’uva (pun intended) movie between the strong plot and that it bases some of the creepy footage off of the real Paris Catacombs and the grim nature of the mysterious occurrences that have gone unsolved. The plot is not the only part of the movie that was good; the never-before-seen cast members actually surprise the audience with their ability to show genuine fear for such extended durations of the movie. It is also evident that the characters in the movie were created with passion and delicacy. The audience almost becomes inspired seeing that regardless of who or what tries to stop Scarlett and George, they maintain an impeccable level of determination to do what is needed and still care for each other at the same time. Finally, the depth of the script itself and the thought process that had to occur before the writing itself must have been intense because there was a significant arousal of idealism within the audience. Despite some of the bad reviews on Rotten Tomatoes, this movie gets a 5/5 rating from me.

    An interesting jaunt through a terrifying location

    As Above So Below is an average horror film, but what pushes it into that realm is the back story. Most horror films are just, kids show up, kids die. This story has more going for it, and tries to have some depth and meaning to the events taking place. The catacombs location also makes for some very interesting ideas and situations, plus knowing that place is real kind of makes it a little more haunting. It is a fun movie, but by no means a must own.

    This movie is by far not a great movie. Acting is pretty bad and kinda falls into the been there seen that category. That being said it was an ok watch. Don't know if I'll ever watch it again but it is def not the worst movie in this genre so give it a try. I found myself kinda not enjoying it as I thought I would during the movie but hours later started thinking about it more and realized I enjoyed it more than I thought

    Above average 'found footage' movie

    As Above So Below is a decent 'found footage' horror movie. The overall idea is a good one; a literal trip through H*ll, but ultimately fails to live up to such a lofty goal. The acting was good and the movie keeps you on the edge of your seat, but I feel like it's own ambition kept it from being great. It just couldn't deliver what it hoped to show us: a first person POV through H*ll.

    Underrated thriller.

    Underrated thriller is more fantasy based than horror. Still an interesting journey of a group of people who descend into the Paris underground labyrinth in search of ancient treasure and get more than they bargain for. One knock is that it is a found footage movie which I don't like and it's still rather annoying here. The film would have been much better as a straightforward story.

    While this movie is another in a long line of movies shot from a POV camera shot (think Blair Witch Project), this was at least a little bit different take in that they went down into the catacombs of Paris for the story. I'd say it was a little bit better then most in this genre at least... not that it probably scared that many people but it was entertaining.

    This can be a big hit or miss with fans of The Divine Comedy. This is basically a rip-off of that. But I mean that I a good way. While this may not be anywhere near as good as The Divine Comedy, it is still a pretty good watch. Worth the money I spent to add it to my collection.

    Heard mixed reviews on the film so I decided to check it out. Starts off pretty quickly and really does well holding the audiences attention. I couldn't wait to see what the heck is going to happen next! The ending paid off for me. The story works I didn't mind the found footage aspect. Few jumps and scares over audio and picture are grat on this disc.
