A South African horror set during Matric Rage? Sign me up
While I am a fan of a good pagan-ritual horror, I do wonder if this wouldn’t have been a great opportunity to find inspiration from a more traditionally South African ritual rather than importing it from the West. Paganism isn’t exactly something you’d find hiding on a beach in Africa - and they could have dived deeper into our bloody history of land dispossession, vengeful apparitions haunting the living. On the other hand, maybe we first need these slightly more superficial exposes of horror (and in
it gets quite horrifically graphic) as a foundation for the more place-a-mirror-up-to-society horrors that are becoming more prevalent in Hollywood.The gore, the scares and the horror are well-executed, supported by a strong cast of performers, but there are many plot holes you must try not to think too hard about. For a house with such a dodgy history, they never explain how the jock of the group’s dad got hold of the house, or even why. And then there’s a locked room that says Do Not Enter, said to be his dad’s study, but is actually just full of creepy stuff from the previous owner.
The rules of this pagan ritual are also very confusing – it’s never fully explained what the ritual is exactly for beyond bringing good fortune and life – but why do they need good fortune? And who’s life? There’s also talks of virgin sacrifice as well, but it’s never brought up again, and the supposed 'virgin' isn’t even really a big feature of the ritual in the end.
Despite its flaws,is a cool watch for horror fans if you want to escape the actual horror of real life right now, and visually – with blood and all – it’s quite stunning and brilliantly filmed. Maybe just don’t watch it if you’re in lockdown mode in the middle of nowhere – the imagination can be a treacherous thing.
