    Struggling for words here... Like how do you review a movie that was made by aliens? I swear my soft spot for early ‘80s slasher trash just got finger probed big time.

    ★★★★½

    Scratches at the door of some pretty overt themes concerning war and its long-term effects, but for every obvious stroke there are more emotional ones underneath. What struck me more however was the film’s meditation on grief and how it acknowledges that everyone navigates the pain of loss differently. Truly affecting stuff.

    ★★★★

    Increasingly claustrophobic dread played with a subtle touch. Water dripping down over greying skin and the unshakeable feeling of shriveled hands tightening around your throat.

    ★★★½

    Short Circuit in a pop trash wasteland. The dead zone of Joburg as a rotting nursery, all dingy pastels and neon schmaltz. Shame about the humans, though. They all suck.
