Miles of twisting catacombs lie beneath the streets of Paris, the eternal home to countless souls. When a team of explorers ventures into the uncharted maze of bones, they uncover the dark secret that lies within this city of the dead.
Thriller - This a low budget, no-star horror thriller told in the found footage
style, thus meaning there is a lot of shaky camera work, so those who
get queasy may want to steer clear. While there isn't any heavy
gore, there is some bloodshed and intense scenes of violence, which
along with the language make the film not for kis.
USA TodayFull Review Poor 'As Above' is so below the average horror film...As forewarned, so avoid. If the nausea-inducing shaky camera work in As Above/So Below does not make audiences bolt for the nearest exit, the inane plot will.
Entertainment WeeklyFull Review Average ...any half-interesting ideas are undermined by the fact that most of the final act is invisible thanks to a dropped camera and the dying batteries of the cast's headlamps. As Above has some genuine scares. But like other movies of its ilk, it's missing a very simple bit of next-level Hollywood technology: a tripod.

Scarlett Marlowe (PERDITA WEEKS), a rebellious adventurer
and brilliant archaeologist, has devoted her entire life to pursuing history's
greatest hidden treasure: Flamel's Philosopher's Stone. According to legend,
this elusive artifact can turn metal into pure gold and grant eternal life-a
power beyond imagination.
Tormented by the unsettling suicide of her father and rumors of his insanity,
Scarlett is driven to the point of obsession: She will never be complete until
she finishes his work and restores his legacy.
A series of cryptic puzzles leads her to discover that the all-powerful stone
lies beneath the streets of Paris, hidden within the world's largest crypt: the
To document her historic mission, Scarlett recruits her old flame and partner in
crime, George (BEN FELDMAN)-a brilliant archaeologist in his own
right who is dedicated to restoring historical monuments to their former
glory-as well as amateur filmmaker Benji (EDWIN HODGE)-a
claustrophobic cameraman unaware of how deep this journey will take him.
Knowing the dangers that lie beneath, the trio scours the City of Light and
recruits a team of underground experts known as Cataphiles to guide the way.
With the rest of Scarlett's crew-Papillon (FRANÇOIS CIVIL), the leader
of the pack; Souxie (newcomer MARION LAMBERT), the punk-rock protector of the
group; and Zed (ALI MARHYAR), the strong and silent
one-assembled, they begin their descent. Although each of them carries a secret,
in the Catacombs, no one can outrun their past.
