Well at least I don’t need to stand facing the corner...
South Africa joins the Halloween horror genre using a home-grown story. We follow a destitute young woman who has dangerously repressed emotions, as she lands a cleaning job at a run-down hospital in the heart of Johannesburg. Desperate for the money so she can bring her younger sister to Johannesburg, she must cope despite the predatory and corrupt hospital manager. When she discovers an abandoned young girl in the hospital, who believes she is tormented by a supernatural force, she must face her own demons from her past in order to save the child from the abusive monster that pursues them both relentlessly. The film has already picked various awards locally and internationally. With English subtitles where necessary.

CommentsContains scenes of Sexual Violence. Complex and mature themes presented in the context of a horror film. Themes explored are African mythology, tokoloshe folk-lore, child hood trauma, shadows appearing and disappearing, cleaner, children hospital, nightmares, abuse by employer, scary drawings on the wall, children being attacked by a tokoloshe, police investigation, tokoloshe forces the kid to play with him even if they don't want to play any more, night terrors, sexual harassment in the workplace, child abuse and neglect, family, monsters, ghosts, conflict, rivalry, vengeance, courage, greed, good versus evil, reunion a sister's love, maternal instinct to protect the vulnerable. The themes are laced with dark emotional undertones as well as a sustained sense of threat and menace. The themes may therefore not be suitable for children under 16 years old as they find them confusing, disturbing, distressing or upsetting. Themes such as child abuse and sexual harassment would be cognitively and psychologically disturbing to children under 16. There is a positive message as well when a cleaner saves a child from a tokoloshe.
