Featurette: THE PYRAMID{0}


20th Century Fox has released a new featurette for its upcoming Egyptian-set horror film, The Pyramid, which is produced by Alexandre Aja (The OthersHorns), and directed by prolific horror screenwriter Grégory Levasseur (who scripted The Hills Have Eyes and Maniac remakes, as well as Mirrors and P2), making his directorial debut.

“A team of US archaeologists gets more than they bargained for when they discover a lost pyramid unlike any other in the Egyptian desert,” goes the official synopsis. “As they unlock the horrific secrets buried within, they realise they aren’t just trapped, they are being hunted.” It sounds as though it could be the plot of any of a number of recent Egyptian-themed horror films, from Day of the Mummy (http://thehorrorshow.tv/movie-display/day-mummy-2014) to The Mummy Resurrected, but with the marketing might of Fox behind it, this is likely to be the film that puts the Egyptian myth back on the map.

The Pyramid is released in UK cinemas on December 5th. Check out the featurette after the jump.
