The first trailer has bowed for Egyptian curse horror flick The Pyramid and, truth be told, it doesn’t look that bad.

Following a team of US archaeologists that get a whole lot more than they bargained for when they unearth an ancient tomb, it’s all dark tunnels, lots of running and screaming – oh, and James Buckley from The Inbetweeners.

That strange bit of casting aside, the film also stars Chronicle’s Ashley Hinshaw, as well as True Blood/American Horror Story alum Denis O’Hare.

The film is actually directed by Gregory Levasseur (making his debut behind the camera), so the trailer elects to focus on producer Alexandre Aja, who brought the likes of Switchblade Romance and The Hills Have Eyes remake to the big screen – films written by Levasseur himself.

The Pyramid hits cinemas on December 5.
