15 | 89 minutes Director: Gregory Levasseur
Inbetweeners’ James Buckley takes the clunge into horror, playing a docucameraman who follows some archaeologists into a three- sided pyramid so old it rewrites the rule book on Egyptian genealogy. Trapped, they soon realise they’re not alone…
Essentially The Descent with CGI rat- dogs, it also chucks toxic dust and enough traps to scare off Indiana Jones into the uneven mix. Alexandre Aja’s long- time writing partner Gregory Levasseur directs, breaking the found- footage rules whenever it aids his purpose and never sure whether to dig for po- faced, claustrophobic dread or exhibit a gore- tastic vom- com. The inventively nasty kills suggest he should have settled for the latter… it’s just a shame that everyone dies in the exact order you’d expect. Jamie Graham
