The Pyramid (2014)



Critic Consensus: Poorly lit and thinly writ, The Pyramid houses little more than clunky dialogue, amateurish acting, and dusty found-footage scares.

Like so many filmmakers before him, Levasseur doesn't seem to grasp that in the horror genre, less can be more.

If you're looking for cheap scares and have 90 minutes to kill, you could do worse than The Pyramid. But not a lot worse.

The air inside the pyramid isn't the only thing that's stale in this ludicrous yet mildly likable horror film.

A stinker in every sense.

"The Pyramid," despite an unpretentious matinee vibe, is mostly interesting in seeing how little light can be on screen before a bare minimum of suspense and coherence dissipates. There is, truly, not much to see in this movie.

It's hard to know what's worse, the under-lit "found footage" from the documentary team or the wretched dialogue.

Okay, I love B-movies so I usually grade these higher than probably most other people. But this was horrible. It's another "found footage" film where you are made sick having to watch something through bad lighting and constant motion. It's plagued with stupid decisions, bad acting, and capped off with a very stupid (yet predictable) ending. Now the "monster" was a cool idea but boy did they screw the pooch on this... smh

Somewhat predictable while still being able to put a little bit of a different spin on the found footage films before it. It keeps your attention because of the higher budget, some of the rooms in the pyramid are highly detailed so kudos to the set designer.
