Holden: [on a video recording] This pyramid, unlike any structure other I've ever encountered, seems to have been built with the express purpose of keeping whatever is inside from escaping. If you come down here... bring guns.

Interesting premise, bad execution
17 January 2015 | by bryllefajardoSee all my reviews

The Pyramid is a refreshing take for horror movies because there hasn't been any "mummy horror-movie" since the late 50s, however, the movie was painful to watch. Why is it? No character development that resulted to viewers not caring about the characters since all the characters suffer from making idiotic and bad decisions that obviously resulted to their death! Even the trailer gives away too much because if you've seen the trailer, you've already seen the whole movie.

The CGI was horrible though it was forgivable, but to be honest, the movie could've really been better because it had an interesting premise. But even though I'm a fan of FOUND-FOOTAGE HORROR MOVIES, I was really disappointed because I thought that I was gonna like it since it felt like "As Above, So Below" which I really loved.

FINAL VERDICT: Not worth your time. 3/10. Better watch "As Above, So Below"
