Showmax has released the first trailer for its psychological thriller, Dam which premieres on Monday, 22 February.

Set in a small-town it centres on Yola Fischer (Lea Vivier), who returns from Chile to the Eastern Cape to bury her father. She discovers he's left his farm to her, to the irritation of her sister. It turns out that this may be more of a curse than a blessing, as the house seems to be trying to tell her something.

If you spell DAM backwards, you get MAD, and there's plenty of madness lurking underneath the beauty of his framing. Pigs die with more violence than necessary; a psychiatric hospital patient uses unorthodox art materials, and wall-mounted barbel fish seem disturbingly popular.
