Red band trailer for the horror flick As Above, So Below
Intriguing horror flick As Above, So Below takes place in the tunnels beneath Paris. Here's a rather bloody red band trailer...
NB: The trailer below is for mature audiences, and you may find it a bit, you know, NSFW.
The eerie, bone-strewn catacombs beneath the streets of Paris provide the setting for the forthcoming horror film As Above, So Below. It's directed by John Erick Dowdle, who co-wrote the screenplay with his brother Drew Dowdle. If those names sound familiar, that may be because you saw the Rec remake Quarantine, or M Night Shyamalan's horror thriller Devil, which they both wrote.
Yet another entry in the found footage subgenre, As Above So Below may contain a familiar mix of jittery cameras, panicked direct-to-lens addresses and flickering torch light, but there are also signs of an entertainingly scary thrill-ride in the latest and final trailer. There are Dan Brown-like investigations in old churches (Lord knows what the local vicar thought when the two leads wandered into the building with a big container of chemicals), a subterranean piano, hooded figures skulking in the darkness, and several gallons of oozing blood.
Could this be the modern, horror version of The Goonies we've all been waiting for? Probably not, but it looks like it could be quite good fun.
As Above, So Below is out in UK cinemas on the 29th August.
