As Above, So Below, with Perdita Weeks, Ben Feldman, Edwin Hodge & François Civil. Director, John Erick Dowdle. Not much good to say about this ridiculous Blair Witch ripoff. Even though it had a lot of promise & fairly exciting trailers, this stupidity ranks as one of the worst films I’ve ever seen.
With a bit of preamble, the main character makes her way to Paris to find a clue to a mysterious symbol of Alchemy. That’s it. The resulting little, deadly, underground adventure has a couple of spooks & shocks; but the precious, jerky filming of it all distracts so much that even the goal becomes an afterthought & the only thing left is the predictable deaths. One by one.
If I were you, I’d avoid this film at all costs. It’s a waste of time. The gorgeous actors are the only thing worthy of note. Literally.
