Thrills all the way.

As Above, So Below 93mins 15

****

A TOMB raider discovers more than archaeological ruins in this shaky-cam horror from the man behind zombie shocker Quarantine.

It's not big on logic but it makes shockers such as The Conjuring or Deliver Us From Evil look like kids' stuff.

Pereira Weeks is a young Lara Croft-style archaeologist hunting in the catacombs beneath Paris for the fabled Philosopher's Stone that grants eternal life.

She and her team come across rats, piles of human bones and, inconveniently, the gateway to hell.

The confined setting ramps up the horror and thrills but the end is a bit of a letdown.
