In a surprise announcement, Marcel Sarmiento (pictured below) will see the release of his Totem on Cinemax and VOD platforms October 31st!
The screenplay was penned by Evan Dickson, who was a long-time writer for Bloody Disgusting and now a full-time screenwriter. Sarmiento directed the awesome Deadgirl before taking the reigns on the wild and crazy wrap portion of VHS: Viral, the third film in our franchise.
“In Totem, a teen must resort to extreme measures to protect her family from a supernatural entity.”
The supernatural thriller stars Kerris Dorsey, who is phenomenal on “Ray Donovan”, alongside Ahna O’Reilly, James Tupper, Lia McHugh, and Braeden LeMasters.
Blumhouse acquired the film produced by Divide / Conquer and Will Frank. HBO will be releasing international starting November 3rd.
Watch for a trailer, art, and imagery in the coming weeks but for now, let’s congratulate Dickson on his first feature film!
