Editorial Reviews

On her first trip to Paris, a young woman hits a party in the Catacombs, the 200-mile labyrinth of limestone tunnels under the city that's lined with the remains of 7 million people. Separated from her friends, she becomes convinced that someone or something is chasing her.

Customer Reviews

It is a the worst film ever.
Still, I would say most people will find the *twist* at the end to be predictable, though there are many possible endings based upon the way the first half is set up.
It has good dialogue and credible acting.

"Catacombs" (produced by Lions Gate Films / Twisted Pictures) stars Shannyn Sossamon as Victoria, slightly nervous American girl who has just arrived in Paris. Victoria visits her fun-loving sister Carolyn (Alecia Moore aka Pink) who with her friends in Paris drags timid Victoria down to the illegal party (like a rock concert) secretly thrown in Paris catacombs.

This is where the remains of seven-million people sleep in the maze of tunnels and graves, a creepy subterranean network that spans nearly 200 miles in length. For Victoria, however, things get serious when she gets lost there and runs into something very strange. Victoria must find out a way to get out of this place, but what can she do alone in the dark?

The story of "Catacombs" fairly looks like the 2004 horror film "Creep" (starring Franka Potente) or the 2005 thriller "The Descent" (far scarier than the other two). The difference is the nice choice of the location. The realistic production designs (the "Paris catacombs" were actually constructed in the soundstage in Romania) are fantastic, but sadly director Tomm Coker and David Elliot fail to use the claustrophobic atmosphere to the full.

For Victoria screams a lot and runs around in the maze, but the film itself is hardly scary. The pretty simple story, which has a potential of becoming a more gripping thriller, suddenly stops going further until the very ending which you will either love or hate.

I don't know why, but Shannyn Sossamon keeps appearing in horror films - "The Order" "Devour" and ... "One Missed Call." I don't think her acting here is bad though it is not great either. My impression may have something to do with the character she plays because you may (and I did) find the character of Victoria a bit annoying.

Format: DVD
Catacombs is a movie that can be enjoyed as mindless entertainment but will not satisfy hardcore horror fans. In some senses, the movie has an entertaining quality to it. But the typical mistakes of B-horror will drive you crazy if you can't help but pick your horror movies apart. We all want to be frightened by horror, but we need that scare to be believable in order to buy into it. This movie is only believable in the sense that the characters, like people we all know, are very, very dumb.

This movie is very similar to The Blair Witch Project. There are no special effects to speak of. There's a lot of screaming, running, darkness and flashing lights to distract you. Yet not a lot happens. It's not really scary per se. The film does build up some angst with those techniques, but only if you are easily startled or have weak nerves. If you liked The Blair Witch Project, you may really enjoy this. If you thought that was silly, just move on.

If you've read the synopsis you know that the film takes place in the underground catacombs of Paris. They really do exist, although not in the way they are depicted in the movie. The set is well put together considering the budget. And they are in Paris after all! Yet despite the beautiful location, the film is visually mediocre with no special cinematography to speak of. A shot of the Eiffel Tower fully lit is the best you'll get.

The script makes a little bit of sense when you get to the end.

Format: DVD
Don't let the "From the Producers of Saw" tagline fool you (and if that's what entices you in the first place, it may be too late for you already), for Catacombs is a more boring than anything else horror dirge that wastes any potential it may have had. Shannyn Sossamon plays a withdrawn young woman named Victoria who takes a trip to France at the behest of her party-loving sister (singer Alecia "Pink" Moore). As they, along with some friends, descend into the French catacombs, bad things end up happening, culminating with Victoria seeking a way to escape the maze-like underground catacombs. While it does have a good dose of atmosphere and makes good on some historical facts, Catacombs as a whole just ends up being too boring for its own good. By the time we get passed the halfway point of the film, we don't care if Victoria or anyone else escapes or not. What does save the film from the scrap heap however is a dynamite twist ending, which may leave you feeling a little cheated, but in actuality helps make Catacombs better than it should be. All in all, Catacombs is worth a look, but if you're expecting another The Descent here, look elsewhere.

I liked this film because of its atmosphere, both visual and sonic. The story reminds me of old Universal Horror Film stories.. Young girl visits a relative in Europe, goes to a party and ends up fighting Monsters that stand on two legs; and meeting a swell guy. . AND it's not campy, it holds it head up high as it is a great indi-horror film with great moody horror sets and Catacomb Rave Parties scenes with GREAT lighting and editing. It never feels cheap. And it looks fun.
PS- DVD is non-progressive and picture is not great. But this is not a problem as it has a grainy look. I wlll watch in many times again.
