This new horror film isn’t as old and decrepit as it may sound.
Coming completely out of left field is the Alex Aja-produced The Pyramid (formerly Site 146), opening in theaters December 5, 2014 via 20th Century Fox.
Gregory Levasseur, who worked with Alexandre Aja on the screenplays for High Tension, The Hills Have Eyes and Maniac, directed the flick, which now has an official trailer.
The footage starts off pretty weak, ripping off trailers for The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, before it explodes into a series of shots that look like a cross between The Descent and Indiana Jones. With As Above, So Below opening this Friday, it looks like we’ve got two underground exploration horror films in the same year, which is pretty great. I’m excited for both, what do you guys think?
In Pyramid, “The ancient wonders of the world have long cursed explorers who’ve dared to uncover their secrets. But a team of U.S. archaeologists gets more than they bargained for when they discover a lost pyramid unlike any other in the Egyptian desert. As they unlock the horrific secrets buried within, they realize they aren’t just trapped, they are being hunted.”
Ashley Hinshaw, Denis O’Hare, James Buckley and Daniel Amerman all star.
