SUPERNATURAL thriller The Tokoloshe will be screened at Comic Con Africa.
The film tells the story of Busi, a young woman who’s desperate for money and works night shift at a hospital.
She befriends Gracie, a young girl who believes she’s being terrorised by a tokoloshe. Petronella Tshuma and Kwande Nkosi play the lead roles.
Director Jerome Pikwane said: “The film generated a great deal of interest at fantasy and horror festivals around the world.
“Audiences responded positively at the premieres in South Korea and the UK.
“People think the story is relevant because it’s about a young woman who fights against an evil that has pursued her all her life.”
Producer Dumi Gumbi said: “Reviewers in the UK gave it 4 out of 5, which means a lot to us.
“We hope that South Africans will enjoy this film.”
It will be screened in Portugal, Sweden, Spain and Belgium before being released in Mzansi on 2 November.
