What we have here fellow fiends, is an anthology horror movie from Italy. The pyramid is four separate stories, all connected by a bizarre little pyramid, which through the centuries has been the catalyst for widespread death and destruction, and after being lost for many years, is finally found and reawakened to bring forth madness and mayhem.
Now I cannot speak for anyone but myself, but I certainly like the premise of this one. Let me give you a little synopsis for each of the stories contained within this movie.
Ritual. Directed by Alex Visani.
This is the opening of the movie. An unfortunate guy has found the pyramid and he slowly becomes possessed by the infernal object (which we see was created by demons). It is a story of possession that contains gore and ironic moments.
Dream Door. Directed by Luca Alessandro.
During this segment, we will see the difficult relationship between a young girl and her boyfriend, who is a comic book artist, and the strange effect the pyramid has on them both after it falls into the young girls grasp. This segment is dreamlike and hallucinogenic, and incredibly introspective.
Pestilence. Directed by Roberto Albanesi and Simone Chiesa.
This segment will show the contagious effects of the pyramid, now that it has gained a considerable amount of power. It manages to spread a vile pestilence, in the vein of John Carpenters Prince of Darkness. This segment is the most action packed and aggressive of the four.
Apocalypse. Directed by Antonio Zannone.
This segment shows us the ultimate effect the pestilence has on the world. The world is near it's end, the human race in nearly extinct, but hope still lives in a couple of post nuclear knights who will fight to destroy the pyramid. This is a gory homage to the post atomic B movies of the eighties.
