Ah this is why I adore the horror genre s much, because every now and then a trailer comes along that gets your adrenalin going, and the first trailer for the Alexandre Aja produced found footage horror, The Pyramid, does exactly that.
Watching this insane trailer, which screams Indiana Jones meets The Descent, it is the kind of really effective trailer that makes you scream “I need to see this NOW!!!” It is filled with some great horror moments involving traps, monsters and mystery, and has a great set up and the idea is absolutely perfect for a found footage horror. Check out the truly awesome trailer below, and no one would argue if you felt the need to watch it twice!
Fox plan to release the film on 5th December here in the UK and also in the US.
The Pyramid is directed by Gregory Levasseur, with Alexandre Aja producing. Daniel Meersand and Nick Simon wrote the film, and the cast includes Ashley Hinshaw, Denis O’Hare, James Buckley, and Daniel Amerman.
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.
