BEWARE THE MOON REVIEWS
I had heard about this film, a little. Not much, and nothing really to say it was worth watching or not. I also feel I watched the trailer a while back, but can I remember it? Not at all. I went into this film blind, apart from being an Inbetweeners fan, I was a little biased watching this with that... "An archaeological team attempts to unlock the secrets of a lost pyramid only to find themselves hunted by an insidious creature."
I am going to get it out straight away. James Buckley is in this, and all I could think was "he's going to say 'clunge' or 'bumder' anytime now...", or at least swear. But no, I was very naughty and was trying to bring his character Jay back in to this, and that is very very wrong... I am just used to seeing him in a school uniform and speaking words that your nan wouldn't want to hear - but that is very very wrong.
I'll be honest, this film is pretty much almost a long lost twin to films such as As Above So Below. It even reminded me of Beneath, due to the story line, but also a little VHS, due to the whole found footage kind of style.
The main thing here is though, I would rather watch those than The Pyramid again. The Pyramid, let me get this straight as I hate saying about bad about people's work, is not the worst film out there at all. I watched it all, but I have to say, I did not enjoy it that much.
I think the problem with The Pyramid is it is not that original a film. You find yourself watching it, and thinking of films that it reminds you of, even comparing it to some, in some cases. The problem with that though, is all the films you are thinking of, are better, and your mind drifts off onto those films and you kind of wish you'd popped them on instead...
The Pyramid had a great concept, Egypt and unknown monsters are a great idea - just look at films like the Decent - but this just didn't find itself. It was a good try but it does didn't live up to the potential, I feel.
Kind of makes me want there to be a horror film of The Inbetweeners...
Watching horror films since like 2003, when I could stand dead bodies..
