On August 29th, Legendary Pictures is releasing the latest from John and Drew Dowdle- As Above, So Below- their terrifying tale which explores the horrors that lie deep below the streets of Paris inside the centuries-old catacombs after an archeological expedition goes awry.

During the 2014 San Diego Comic-Con, Daily Dead had the opportunity to chat with both John and Drew about the story of As Above, So Below as well as what inspired them to head down to the historic Paris catacombs for the film and their thoughts on their contributions to the modern found footage movement. The Dowdles also chatted about the status of The Poughkeepsie Tapes and what happened with the recent DirecTV VOD release snafu when the film appeared to be available to rent finally, but was pulled down just a few short hours later.

Check out our video interview with John and Drew Dowdle below and look for more from the duo exclusively in the upcoming preview issue of DEADLY - Horror & Sci-Fi Magazine.
