AS ABOVE, SO BELOW is a horror film about a group of young people who enter the catacombs beneath Paris in search of hidden treasure.

Threat

The film contains a number of scenes of strong horror and threat. These include some shock moments, when figures loom out of the dark or jump in front of characters. There are also some bloody moments, when people die or are injured as a result of the strange goings-on in the catacombs. However, much of the action is seen via shaky, hand-held camera footage and lit by torchlight, so there's very little focus on injury. The strongest moment comes as a woman is attacked and her head is banged onto the stone floor several times. There is blood on her face and head, but this is not on screen for very long.

Language

The film contains over fifty uses of strong language ('f**k') and uses of other, milder terms such as 'bitch' and 'asshole'

The film also contains some references to a man's suicide and the sight of a noose hanging from a ceiling.
