The US takes on J-Horror again with ‘Temple’

by Phil Wheat

Well, well, it looks likes America is trying to take on J-Horror once again! The first time we got films like the remakes of The Ring and The Grudge; the last time we got The Forest – where we stand with Temple, a new horror movie from the writer of You’re Next, The Guest, and Blair Witch and from the executive producer of The Ring trilogy, is anyone’s guess.

Yes, Temple has a decent pedigree but, and this is a huge but (and I cannot lie), whether Simon Barrett’s script can live up to the standards horror fans expect from these types of genre films remains to be seen. I’ll give it the benefit of the doubt – for now – based on this trailer…

Three American tourists follow a mysterious map deep into the jungles of Japan searching for an ancient temple. When spirits entrap them, their adventure quickly becomes a horrific nightmare.

Directed by Michael Barrett and written by Simon Barrett, Temple stars Logan Huffman, Natalia Warner, and Brandon Sklenar. The film is set for release on 1st September 2017.
