As Above, So Below Has Spirit, But It's Digging In The Wrong Place

As Above, So Below is an ambitious excavation horror movie that tries to blend the world of Indiana Jones with the found footage genre.

​Someone Finally Starts Hunting Some Goddamn Vampires On The Strain

Somewhere in the shadows, there lies a dark power. An elusive being of darkness and terror that lays hiding, biding its time, waiting for the perfect moment to strike.
