Reel Nightmare Films has announced they will release writer-director Richard Green's Tokoloshe: An African Curse (also known as Tokoloshe: The Calling) on VOD platforms this February, and today we have the official trailer and new poster art to share with you.
Based on the legend of the Tokoloshe, an urban myth that has terrified Africa in a similar way Americans fear the Boogeyman; the Tokoloshe is a sinister creature that haunts people’s dreams and possesses them to commit evil acts.
In the film, a novelist pressured for a new hit travels with his family to an abandoned hotel in South Africa, unaware that it's haunted by a demon known as the Tokoloshe. When the writer becomes possessed and begins terrorizing his family, a young woman experiencing supernatural visions linked to the hotel sets out to help the family and defeat the African boogeyman: the Tokoloshe.
Arish Sirkissoon (aka LX SETH) wrote and co-produced with Green. The film was shot in Durban, South Africa and stars Shezi Sibongiseni, Angela Balkovic, Lloyd Grant O’Connor, Arish Sirkissoon and Lwandile Xaba.
