Very Gloomy and Foreboding
18 February 2019 | by timothygartinSee all my reviews

I did not care for The Tokoloshe. I thought the movie was really slow. Even though the director does a great job portraying the gloominess and sorrow of the main character, the gloominess gets overwhelming about half way through.

I liked the monster effects and the acting was good.
