Consensus: After an intriguing setup that threatens to claw its way out of found-footage overkill, As Above/So Below plummets into clichéd mediocrity.

Wesley Morris
Grantland

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?"

"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.

Once the characters go underground, things start happening. Not scary things, mind you, but things.

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.

Apparently, these young adults are experts on urban planning, metallurgy, civil engineering, languages, Egyptian mythology and ancient mysticism, but their smarts are only matched by a lack of common sense and accountability.

The movie's signature signage - "Abandon all hope, ye who enter here" - is the only instruction we really need.

An entertainment-free sinkhole of Dramamine-worthy nonsense ...

It just isn't scary or clever enough and doesn't really gain momentum until a last minute dash towards a toe-curlingly obvious resolution.
