Horror Trailer-Off: 'The Pyramid' vs. 'As Above, So Below'

Under Paris there are catacombs that contain a piano from your childhood, and an inscription telling you you’re at the gates of Hell. Do you:

a) Run out of the catacombs like a possessed nutcase, or

b) Investigate further, even though a lot of weird shit is happening and your friends are turning into homicidal maniacs one by one?

Regardless of your answer, this trailer does look pretty moodycool; I’d totally do it. According to Ben Feldman, everything referenced in the film is real (he suggests you go home and Google after watching).

If you don’t care for tunnels under Paris, perhaps the tombs below Egypt would be more your style. Never mind that toxic dust, or people telling you “You’re crazy if you go in there,” or the ancient carvings that warn you to stay away. Do you:

a) Go through a labyrinth until you get to the door that’s obviously keeping something locked inside, then run screaming until you feel the sun on your face again, or

b) Let the thing behind the door out and wait for your friends to disappear one by one?

This one is slightly less appealing to me, but what do I know? Maybe the lure of ancient archeological treasure is too much for you to bear.

As Above, So Below is directed by John Erick Dowdle (Quarantine, Devil), and stars Ben Feldman, Perdita Weeks and Edwin Hodge; it opens August 29th. The Pyramid is directed by Grégory Levasseur (who wrote The Hills Have Eyes, Mirrors and P2 screenplays), and stars Denis O’Hare, Ashley Hinshaw, and James Buckley; it hits theaters December 5th.
