Review – Catacombs

For a movie about demonic infestation, this one’s remarkably calm. Indeed, if it wasn’t for the evil spirit chained up in the basement, this monastery would be an ordinary, everyday community of religious men. But then a female teacher shows up to do some research, the demon gets loose, and things go downhill from there. The natural-to-the-verge-of-dull atmosphere made the supernatural intrusion more effective than it would otherwise have been. It’s a shame more low-budget horror filmmakers don’t take advantage of this simple trick. Mildly amusing
