Shudder has released a trailer for director Kenna Cato Bass’s Good Madam (Mlungu Wam), which it says “explores the generational trauma inherent to South African culture, sprawling from the past to the present day, with chilling delivery and haunting result“
In the film, “Tsidi, a single mother, is forced to move in with her estranged mother Mavis, a live-in domestic worker caring obsessively for her catatonic white ‘Madam’. As Tsidi tries to heal her family, however, a sinister spectre begins to stir.”
In our four-star review out of the Brooklyn Horror Film Festival last year, we noted that Good Madam “vibate[s] with a nervous energy that is amplified by the restless sound design.” Cato Bass co-wrote the film with Babalwa Bartman. Chumisa Cosa, Nosipho Mtebe, Kamvalethu Jonas Raziya, Sanda Shandu, Khanyiso Kenqa, Sizwe Ginger Lubengu, Siya Sikawuti, Peggy Tunyiswa, and Chris Gxalaba star.
Good Madam arrives on Shudder on July 14th. Check out the trailer below.
