Legendary and Universal Pictures have released a new extended As Above So Below red-band trailer for director John Dowdle’s (Quarantine) upcoming horror film.  The pic takes place in the Paris catacombs, as the 200 miles of twisting tunnels six stories below the surface offers a unique and terror-filled setting.  Born out of the Dowdle brothers’ desire to make a found footage Indiana Jones-type film, the story follows a group of people who find that as they go deeper into the catacombs, they’re each forced to face their own personal demons.  This actually looks like a pretty promising entry in the horror genre, as the terrifying nature of the real-life catacombs offers a sort of “descent into madness” atmosphere to the proceedings.

Hit the jump to watch the new As Above So Below red-band trailer, and click here to read our interview with the Dowdle brothers at Comic-Con.  The film stars Perdita Weeks, Ben Feldman, and Edwin HodgeAs Above So Below opens in theaters this Friday, August 29th.

Here’s the official synopsis for As Above So Below:

Miles of twisting catacombs lie beneath the streets of Paris, the eternal home to countless souls.  When a team of explorers ventures into the uncharted maze of bones, they uncover the dark secret that lies within this city of the dead.  A journey into madness and terror, As Above/So Below reaches deep into the human psyche to reveal the personal demons that come back to haunt us all.

    Let me guess how this goes. They go in,get trapped,the black man dies the first 5 minutes or they make you think he is dead but ends up dead anyway or he is the devil the whole time. Then everybody else dies and the women turns out to be worst out of all of them and played like she is good but ends up slipping in to the lowest circle of hell for what she did. THE END

      From the footage it definitely looks like the black guy dies first.

        That’s why I make it my point never to vacation with white people outside the United States for fear one of them might suggest: Hey, there’s an abandoned mine shaft- or ominous sink hole, or forbidden sacred ruins located just inside a underground cavern; let’s go check it out! I wouldn’t want to be the ‘lone black friend’ in any of these scenarios.

        I wonder what goes through a black actor’s mind when he discovers he’s the only minority on set. I would rather ask my agent up front, am I being cast so that my only purpose in this film is to die first? I guess we’re not as post-racial as we claim to be.

        I submit to you Scream 2. The only horror movie where the lone black man had the sense to get the f*ck out of there! And then came back to help report on it!!
        And seriously, why can’t they just make it real once and have the lone black man be like “F*ck that! I’m not going into a a cavern, house, etc where massive amounts of people died, or are buried. You have fun and tell me all about it!” The closest we got was the dude in “Cabin in the Woods” and he was Shaggy basically!!

        LOL! My sentiments exactly.

        He should have been the one lighting the joint at the end of the movie (as he drives away in the RV), not the fool. Loved South Park’s take on the ‘black guy dies first scenario’ in Die Hippie, Die.
