Trailer: Alex Aja-Produced “THE PYRAMID” Excavates Terror

The first trailer for THE PYRAMID claims its been 91 years since any tombs in Egypt have been disturbed. It feels almost as long since we’ve had a proper fright based in the region, with the contemporary MUMMY movies going for a little more adventure and a little less horror. Have Alexandre Aja and director Gregory Levasseur plans to change that?

In THE PYRAMID, “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.”

A seeming mix of faux doc and verité style camerawork, THE PYRAMID is aiming for claustrophobic, underground atmosphere, with perhaps vicious mummy creatures scuttling about in the dark. Let’s hope the old-freshness of dormant, cinematic monsters offset the samey sheen this clip gives off.
