Showmax avails SAFTA-winning local horror film, Triggered

Showmax has confirmed the availability of the locally produced horror film, Triggered, which features Reine Swart as the lead.

Showmax took to Twitter on Monday, 11 October 2021, to share a reminder of the upcoming new content set to premiere on the streaming service, one of which is the local horror film, Triggered. Co-written and directed by Alastair ‘Axis Mundi’ Orr, the 2020 film won the 2021 Best Achievement in Make-Up and Hairstyling award at the South Africa Film and Television Awards (SAFTA).

According to Showmax, “The film follows nine former high school friends who celebrate their five-year reunion camping in a forest. Terror strikes when they wake up with bombs strapped to their chests, all with varying times on their countdown clocks… and the only way to survive: by “stealing” time from one another.”

Adding, “The ensemble cast includes Reine Swart (SAFTA nominee for Siembamba), Liesl Ahlers (Friend Request), Russell Crous (The Watch), SAFTA winner Craig Urbani (Isidingo) and multi-award-winning actor Sean Cameron Michael (Black Sails).”

Triggered premiered on Showmax on Monday, 11 October 2021.
