Still trying to digest the ending but this is a super well-made film.

It was a very creepy slow burn with a nice pay off, parts of it were incredibly slow but the entire movie has an eerie feel that I love. From my understanding I like the twist alot but this movie won't be for everyone, I'm pleasantly surprised I liked this . It keeps you thinking.

Be patient this is a well told story. I wholeheartedly appreciate this movie and the beautiful Nguni language. Xhosa. South Africa. Good job on putting this together exceptionally. Beautifully real. Well told and fantastic acting. Can't wait to see more movies like this

Spooky on many different levels. Really love the intertwining of the larger social trauma of apartheid in South Africa with the personal trauma of this specific family and how they have been affected. It's very distressing at times and kept me on my toes as it becomes difficult to determine if a scene is actually happening or if the main character is hallucinating. Thankfully, there is a happy ending. I'm not usually a fan of happy endings in horror movies but this one is satisfying maybe because it isn't a happy ending for everyone.
