Critic Reviews for As Above, So Below
Once upon a time, when someone in a horror movie turned a doorknob or drove toward a storm, you got to feel superior and shout, "Don't go in there!" Now it's more like, "Seriously? You're not gonna put down that camera first?"
Once the characters go underground, things start happening. Not scary things, mind you, but things.
The movie's signature signage - "Abandon all hope, ye who enter here" - is the only instruction we really need.
"As Above, So Below" is novel enough to be worth the price of admission, but you'll think twice before getting back in line for a second visit.
While the film has a reasonably engaging cast and some decent scares, the script feels like an uneasy blend of The Blair Witch Project and Tomb Raider.
Audience Reviews for As Above, So Below
It's dumb. It's really really really dumb. But it's not boring, and boring is the worst thing a movie can be. I actually can't remember the last time I was this entertained by a found footage horror. Probably The Last Exorcism five years ago. Now "good for a found footage horror" may not exactly be the highest praise, but As Above, So Below is still worth a watch for genre fans.
Awesome idea... Bad idea... While I was again excited for the hype behind the idea, and to see Cloverfields own behind the camera again.. Found footage films are starting to lack alot of effort and thrill they usually give me.
Dan Brown meets The Blair Witch Project in this harrowing horror movie that has good actors and makes expert use of the subjective camera to enhance the sense of claustrophobia, taking a simple premise and fleshing it out into a terrifying, nerve-fraying descent to hell.
