After its release in the USA, UK and Vietnam, South Africans can now watch the horror, The Unfamiliar, on DStv Box Office, iTunes and Google Play.

Co-written and directed by Henk Pretorius (Leading Lady, Bakgat) the film centres on a British army doctor (Jemima West) who returns homes after the war thinking she has PTSD only to discover that there are evil spirits in her home.

"I am thrilled to finally share The Unfamiliar with my friends back home and hope that our first effort at creating a British horror film will make you proud," said Henk.

The Unfamiliar has just signed a major South American cinema deal, after opening at number 2 in over a thousand cinemas in Vietnam and was officially selected to be part of Apple’s Halloween promotion in the USA.
