Is It Any Good?

Kids say (1 ):

Gregory Levasseur makes his directorial debut with this awful, quickie "found footage" horror movie, similar to, but far inferior to, As Above/So Below. THE PYRAMID feels lazy and dashed off, as if getting it into theaters was more important than actually crafting any suspense or creating believable characters. It can't even bother to keep up the found-footage pretense, frequently cheating and cutting to the inside of chambers as they open from the outside, etc.

Characters seem totally unaffected by the deaths of their fellow travelers; they keep on either cracking jokes or spewing factoids about ancient Egyptian burial practices. The scary stuff is entirely stale, relying either on ill-timed, sudden shocks or on cheap-looking computer-generated monsters. As the monster drags its nails on the walls to taunt its prey, he seems more like Freddy Kruger than an ancient Egyptian.
