Review

A star rating of 3 out of 5.

This by-the-book spook story follows a group of adventurers as they explore the catacombs beneath the streets of Paris in search of ancient artefacts, but find more than they bargained for. With surprises and dangers lurking around every corner, the mission becomes more about escape, as, one by one, members of the party are subjected to unseen terrors and picked off by ghostly apparitions. Perdita Weeks, as the Lara Croft-like leader of the expedition, makes a steely heroine, but her fellow subterranean thrill-seekers are drawn as uninteresting archetypes. It's a perfectly serviceable addition to the "found footage" genre of chillers from director/co-writer John Erick Dowdle (Devil), who puts cameras in each character's helmet, allowing quick cuts from one scene to another. But despite the claustrophobia of the setting, he never quite racks up enough tension for a full-on fright-fest.
