When a team of explorers ventures into the catacombs that lie beneath the streets of Paris, they uncover the dark secret that lies within this city of the dead.
A "found footage" horror that I had little knowledge or expectations about. After an action-packed introduction, a brisk setup introducing the characters and their quest, it moves down to the catacombs underneath Paris. Similar to The Descent, it uses the claustrophobic setting to great effect. This is combined with a great telling of Dante’s Inferno 9 Circles of Hell allegory and creepy characters it has genuinely frightening moments. Running at a brisk 90 minutes, it uses every inch of its runtime to fantastic effect.
