The Pyramid is a horror movie that follows a team of archeologists who venture into the Egyptian desert to explore a newly discovered pyramid. The film takes place in 2012, during the aftermath of the 2011 Arab Spring protests, and begins with the introduction of the team members. The leader of the team is Dr. Miles Holden, played by Denis O'Hare. Holden is a renowned archeologist who has devoted his life to the study of ancient Egypt. The rest of the team consists of Nora, played by Ashley Hinshaw, and Fitzie, played by James Buckley. Nora is a documentary filmmaker who is covering the expedition, while Fitzie is the team's engineer and drone operator.

The group travels to Egypt and meets up with a local guide named Zahir, played by Amir K. Ziyadat. Zahir takes them to the pyramid, which is located in a remote area of the desert. From the outside, the pyramid appears to be a standard four-sided structure, but once the team enters, they discover that it is a five-sided pyramid, unlike any other ever found.

As they begin their exploration of the pyramid, the team goes deeper and deeper into the structure. Along the way, they encounter a series of traps and puzzles that were designed to deter thieves and tomb raiders. Despite the dangers, the team persists and eventually discovers a hidden chamber deep within the pyramid.

Inside the chamber, they find a sarcophagus containing the mummified remains of a pharaoh. However, they soon realize that something else is also inside the chamber with them. They hear strange noises and begin to feel a sense of impending danger. As they try to leave the chamber, they discover that the pyramid has shifted and the entrance has been sealed off, trapping them inside.

From here, the movie takes a turn towards horror as the team begins to experience a series of terrifying and deadly encounters. They encounter strange creatures that seem to be a fusion of ancient Egyptian mythology and modern technology. The creatures are aggressive and seemingly indestructible, leading the team to realize that they are facing an ancient curse that has been unleashed upon them.

The group tries to find a way out of the pyramid, but the creatures seem to be one step ahead of them at every turn. They are forced to fight for survival and learn to work together if they want to make it out alive. As they progress further into the pyramid, they encounter more of the creatures and uncover the true nature of the curse.

The Pyramid is a well-crafted horror movie that combines elements of ancient mythology, adventure, and survival. The movie's pacing is consistently tense, keeping viewers on the edge of their seats as the team navigates the dangerous corridors of the pyramid. The special effects are impressive, creating a sense of realism and danger that adds to the movie's overall atmosphere.

The cast is also impressive, with each member of the team bringing a unique perspective to the story. Ashley Hinshaw delivers a strong performance as Nora, who is both a talented filmmaker and a resilient survivor. James Buckley provides some much-needed comic relief as Fitzie, while Denis O'Hare anchors the movie with his gravitas and expertise.

Overall, The Pyramid is a thrilling and entertaining horror movie that will keep viewers engaged from start to finish. It's a must-see for fans of the genre and anyone who enjoys an exciting adventure story.
