Don’t ever go in Madam’s room…
Good Madam–a psychological thriller that hits Shudder next month–explores the generational trauma inherent in South African culture. Check out the pulse-pounding trailer–courtesy of Deadline--on this page.
The horror film–the fourth feature from acclaimed South African filmmaker Jenna Cato Bass (High Fantasy)–premiered at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival to rave reviews and will land on Shudder July 14.
Good Madam follows Tsidi, a single mother who is “forced to move in with her estranged mother Mavis–a live-in domestic worker caring obsessively for her catatonic white ‘Madam’ in an affluent Cape Town suburbs,” according to the synopsis. But, as Tsidi tries to heal her family, “a sinister specter begins to stir.”
The film stars Chumisa Cosa, Nosipho Mtebe, Kamvalethu Jonas Raziya, Sanda Shandu, Khanyiso Kenqa, Sizwe Ginger Lubengu, Siya Sikawuti, Peggy Tunyiswa and Chris Gxalaba–who all share screenwriting credits with Bass.
Bass also produced the film, along with Kristina Ceyton (The Babadook) and Samantha Jennings (Cargo). The executive producers include Salman Al-Rashid, Sam Frohman, Richard Mansell, David Bass and Jason Newmark.
