  • Guy Lodge

    Correctly ascertaining that auds will be less interested in the outcome than in the obstacles along the way, Levasseur plants and executes the pic’s exclamation-point scares with grinning, squelching gusto.

    In the end, The Pyramid seems designed not for horror, adventure, or action but to provide every possible answer to the question of its found-footage bona fides—yes, no, or maybe, depending on who’s asking. It spends most of its running time hedging uncertainly between trend and backlash, explanations and excuses.

    The Pyramid is a mere matinee meat-grinder, neither terribly original nor all that tense. The real pyramids have been remembered for millennia. This one will be lucky if it lasts a week.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Tom Huddleston

    This enjoyable-despite-itself horror flick has precisely nothing new to offer - with the arguable exception of a monster in a miniskirt, which may be a first.

    In news that will probably not startle too many of you, The Pyramid is pretty much junk from start to finish. Full Review
  • Michael O'Sullivan

    The air inside the pyramid isn’t the only thing that’s stale in this ludicrous yet mildly likable horror film.

    If you're looking for cheap scares and have 90 minutes to kill, you could do worse than The Pyramid. But not a lot worse.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Martin Tsai

    The obnoxious sound design and score divest the film of much of its suspense, and perhaps more important characters have no survival instincts. The audience never has a chance to build some false hope that someone might make it out alive.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Drew Taylor

    It's a found footage movie that feels instantly dated, even with its supposed political undertones. It's creaky, laborious, and not, in the least bit, scary.

  • Ben Kenigsberg

    The answers aren’t satisfying, and The Pyramid, despite an unpretentious matinee vibe, is mostly interesting in seeing how little light can be on screen before a bare minimum of suspense and coherence dissipates. There is, truly, not much to see in this movie.

  • Jordan Hoffman

    Poisoned air, feral night-vision critters and hard-to-read hieroglyphics are just the tip of the pyramid for the world's dumbest squad of adventurers who walk right into their own curse.

    The problem with The Pyramid is that it doesn't have a single new idea in its arsenal. All the shocks are cribbed from the likes of Alien, The Descent and a ghostly host of other horror films, but they're not even very effectively done here.

    The paucity of new ideas is evident from the opening crawl.

    Worse than being buried alive in an actual pyramid, if mercifully less time-consuming.

    Empire Full Review
  • Chris Michael

    Levasseur understands the claustrophobia of being locked inside a stuffy pyramid with collapsing floors and sand traps. Unfortunately for him, Indiana Jones turns out to be incompatible with Alien, and the bad acting and atrocious script don’t help.

    By the end of The Pyramid, found footage becomes just another possession to be buried alongside long-dead Pharaohs for use in the next life. Here’s hoping the next life has no return policy.
