Doesn’t Derserve the questionably low 4.3 Rating
Folks, this is a decent horror flick. Its no Academy Award winner, but it doesn’t suck either.
I saw TOTEM on Saturday 11/18/17 on HBO when it was rated as 4.3/10 and I’m glad I watched it despite the questionably low rating. Its got a good plot, some good scares, a cool plot-twist at the end, and is overall a decent horror flick.
Now I’ll be the first to admit I watch movies for enjoyment – I’m not pretentious nor do I study a flick for tone, cinematography, screen writing, editing, lighting, sound, etc.
Albeit obvious, I’m an American conservative guy, and my favorite genre’s are Horror/Suspense, Action/Adventure, Westerns, Crime/Legal, War/Military, etc. … and I tend to keep my movie “reviews” simple.
1) Loved it – awesome
2) Liked it – not too bad, or
3) Hated it – it sucked
If you like horror movies and aren’t bent on a movie being perfect, you’ll like it – and yes it is worth the 90 minute investment in time, and the Red Box fee (if any). I almost gave it a 7 (its a very high 6).
Again, its no 10, but certainly is no 4 …
Starts off holding your attention but ends up a missed opportunity
The actors did a great job from what I could tell. The director, Marcel Sarmiento, is well known for Deadgirl, which I have not seen but many where hopeful he would top. Although Marcel is credited for writing the story, the story and screenplay was written by Evan Dickson, of which it is Evan’s first feature film.
The movie starts off with an interesting premise and held my attention the first half. The cinematography is fine but later it becomes obvious they were working with a limited budget.
Two-thirds into the movie things start to go awry and although the pace picks up I felt the story gets more unbelievable not just in decisions that are made but with distractions that make it obvious there might have been editing issues.
The saving grace is there is a twist at the end that most people would not have seen coming but it was not enough for me to say it is a must see unless you are a fan of the actors or the director.
