Critic Reviews for Temple
There is no monster at the end of this story, only boundless regret, and tedium.
The movie gets lost in a thicket of horror-movie cliches. Heroes wandering off at just the wrong moment to empty their bladders. Too-dark scenes, lit entirely by bouncing flashlights.
Temple comes off as more of a half-hearted attempt at exploiting typical J-horror themes than an actual homage to the Japanese genre.
Problems aside, it's refreshing to stumble on a film of this genre that doesn't fall under the "standard order horror" umbrella where an avalanche of jump scares replaces attempts to generate a pervasive sense of unease.
It fails to provide any real scares and adheres to well-worn tropes without a fresh twist.
Audience Reviews for Temple
I liked it being set in Japan, and for unknowns the acting was decent, plus the Japanese cast were good, but the ending is very confusing and didn't tie up properly with a lot left unanswered. The little Japanese boy was genuinely creepy. Could have been much better than it ended up being.
