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).”
