Kelly's Review of Catacombs

9 years ago via Flixster


This is one of those films where the cover looked cool and I thought what the hell I'll give it a try. When I brought it home and realized Shannyn Sossamon was in it I thought damn it I hate her. Still I had rented the film so I was determined to watch it.

The writer/director really tries to mess with your head on this one but in my opinion fails miserably. It had the potential to be really good but it relied on too many "boo" type of scares for it to be taken seriously.

Throughout the entire movie you follow the protagnoist in the claustrophobic setting of the catacombs. I think this could have been a good film but I just didn't care about the characters and I thought it was predictable. The entire movie is building up to a big twist in the end which is easily spotted from a mile away.

But just to show that I'm not entirely negative I do have one good thing to say about this film.. it was under two hours long.
