So, what gives? I totally like this movie. I did not anticipate that. I expected your run-of-the-mill, everyone-who’s-ever-existed-is-in-their-late-20s, strictly-for-teens kind of romp, but it turns out this movie was smart, eerie, and fairly interesting. It takes place in the catacombs, below France, and entails a number of 20-somethings who become trapped down there and try to escape by going…FURTHER DOWN. It’s kind of a head-trip in the end, and some of the scares are super cheesy. It’s scary enough as is, without boogedies occasionally jumping out. But who am I to judge, the creepy/silly characters are a part of the fun, and help the movie not take itself TOO seriously. Anyway, totally worth the watch, enjoy!
