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.

The growing emphasis on infighting and puzzle-solving only exacerbates the movie's less-than-captivating vibe...

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.

Despite its 'found footage' presentation, this is an amusingly unpretentious genre exercise, more akin to the old-school monster movies, mummy's-curse chillers and gory body-count shockers of decades past than to the shaky-camera thrillers of today.
