  • This low budget effort from director John Erick Dowdle and writer-producer-brother Drew Dowdle provides a few late scares after plenty of eye-rolling setup, with said scares due more to the heavy sound design than the action itself. show more

    It's clear from the start that Dowdle isn't taking any of this seriously. The same cannot be said for the game and luckless cast of young actors, who are so whiny and hysterical right from the start of their plunge into the tombs that they win hearty unintentional laughs throughout. show more

  • The film’s finely tuned middle act, a fast-paced and quick-witted journey into (possible) madness, eventually gives way to an unsettlingly over the top final section that relies far too much on larger setpieces and supposed “big scares” that are never as good as the smaller, weirder stuff. show more

    I saw this movie 3 times (so far). The concept of this film is awesome. Yes, there's a lot of bouncing of the camera (think Blair Witch Project), but if you get past that, the movie is really good. There are two scenes I really enjoyed. One scene is the ending. But I'm not going to spoil it for those who haven't seen it. And the music score is cool too.

    This is probably the worst movie I have ever seen. The constant movement of the camera actually gave me a headache and made me sick to my stomach. Don't waste your money.

    Saw the movie today, 9/9. Had to leave I get motion sickness and really got sick. If I known it was going to be like a home made movie I would have saved my money. Did not enjoy at all.
