(This review may contain spoilers).
I did feel that this film did follow a lot of the ‘normal’ cliches for a found footage horror film. I did appreciate the fact that there was some detail shown about the characters’ interactions with each other beforehand. However, I wasn’t entirely sure what all of their relationships were or how they all knew each other.
It was… interesting to see the actor who played Jay in the Inbetweeners in this, but it was difficult to see him as someone other than Jay at times. Some of what he came out with made me not able to take him so seriously.
The links in with mythology were quite interesting, but I’m not sure they added a whole lot to the film. In some respects, it did provide an explanation about what was going on… but there were certain things I felt could have been explored but weren’t.
There were some jumpy moments in this film, but it wasn’t as scary as it could have been. Some of the characters did grow on me by the end, but I didn’t feel they cared that much for each other during a lot of the events at first.
I wasn’t really sold on the ending of this film, either, since it fell into the trap of not being a proper ending.
There were some intriguing moments in this film, but I think it could have been improved. There was a realistic-ish reason for the team to enter the pyramid, but the scares were more of the ‘cheap’, jumpy kind rather than truly scary.
