    Spanish film REC - the inspiration for 2008 American horror Quarantine - also follows a group of people who are trapped and terrified. Except, in this case, the protagonists are not underground. These pour souls are trapped in an apartment building in Barcelona, that's been sealed off by the police and military. Officials are trying to contain the virus, which is making the tenants become extremely aggressive. Reporter Ángela Vidal and her cameraman Pablo are dragged into the situation thanks to a TV series called While You're Sleeping, which had them shadowing local fire stations.

    If you're looking to do an underground double feature, The Descent is one of the best cave horror movies there is. Thrill-seeking women try to distract their friend Sarah with a spelunking getaway after a personal tragedy. But things go wrong when a passage collapses behind them, and their guide reveals she wanted to surprise them by conquering an unknown cave system, meaning no one even knows where to look for them for rescue. Things get much worse when they discover they are not alone down there.

    The V/H/S/99 segment “To Hell and Back,” written and directed by Vanessa and Joseph Winter, goes particularly well with As Above, So Below. It follows videographers who have been hired to film a coven of witches performing a ritual on New Year’s Eve 1999. They didn’t believe in what was happening, but they sure do once an uninvited demon gets involved and literally drags them into hell. In case you need any more convincing, V/H/S/99 became Shudder's most-viewed premiere in October 2022, a title previously held by V/H/S/94.

    The Outwaters

    The Outwaters begins much more lighthearted than As Above, So Below, but both feature film crews on a mission, and end with blood, death, and destruction. Writer, director, and actor Robbie Banfitch plays an aspiring filmmaker who heads off to the Mojave Desert to film a music video for his friend, Michelle. The story is told through the footage found on three memory cards left behind by the missing crew, who seem to have found themselves in some kind of hell.

    The Ritual makes a good double feature for As Above, So Below for a number of reasons, one being that both groups of characters are dealing with a lot of personal demons. The same way that Scarlett's father's suicide was heavy in her heart, Luke in The Ritual is particularly struggling following the death of his friend, Rob, who was killed when the pair accidentally interrupted a robbery in a liquor store. He still bears guilt for choosing to hide when they saw the armed thieves, rather than trying to help his friend Rob get out alive, too.

    Hellbender is more witches than walking through Dante’s Inferno, but the chaotic magic energy is there. The film follows Izzy and her mother, who divide their time between making metal music, and living a peaceful, isolated life in the woods. That is, until a chance encounter reveals the family’s connection to witchcraft. Hellbender comes from the impressive Adams family (John Adams and Toby Poser, and their daughters Lulu and Zelda Adams), who shot this film themselves, at their home in Catskill, New York, during the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown.
