The Tokoloshe

This late night thriller is perfect for the horror fans out there. Based on the urban legend we all grew up with, this movie explores what happens when you meet a Tokoloshe face-to-face. A woman takes on a job cleaning a semi-abandoned hospital at night but, from the start, she can sense that something isn’t quite right. Needing the money, she continues to work until one night, things take a dark and twisted turn... Let’s hope no one dared say its name three times!
