'As Above So Below' I saw it, A couple of caveats, there a level of shakey cam in this and if you are claustrophobic this movie is not for you. There is blood but not creature ripped their heart out gore. There are supernatural forces at work and when things move underground things get weirder and weirder. If you didn't like the cave diving in "The Descent' you won't get into this.
Without really giving too much away, The story set up is a doctor is looking for something that an alchemist buried beneath Paris, there may be treasure, and the gates of hell are involved. Or it could be the real gates of hell.
Things start out slow ( in a good way) and when they go south they really go south. The dialog is very key to parts of this and it's important to take it all in, it will make things the less confusing. Things are not overly explained, so you will get draw you own conclusions.
It's good for a supernatural suspense movie, just don't expect a horror film. There is a good level of what the hell is going on suspense. I liked it. The film is from the Dowdle brothers you might know some of their work.
