  1. The Pyramid is a found footage movie but part of a new wave along with As Above so Below released the same year.
    I don’t have a problem with the format, it allows the telling of a story from a different perspective to a regular film and if done right gets you closer to the event.
    The story is a classic horror setup, the finding of a hitherto unknown pyramid and the evil that waits within.
    The claustrophobic corridors and crawl spaces really work with the close camera work to ramp up the tension.
    Horror often relies on protagonists making stupid decision, which is often infuriating.
    Mostly the team were just overconfident, the events are beyond anything they could prepare for so I feel this film avoids that annoyance.
    There are some really haunting images and some impressive deaths given what would be a limited budget.
    Overall this was a very enjoyable horror movie.

  2. The only thing worse than Found Footage Horror, is lazy Found Footage Horror. You know? The kind where the camera is inexplicably in a room the crew have never been in before filming every single character while non-diegetic music plays and awful, awful CGI scarpers by? Yeah, that kind.

    I didn’t just think that _The Pyramid_ wasn’t a good movie, it honestly made me genuinely mad.

    Final rating:½ – So bad it’s offensive.
