Shudder, the premium streaming service for horror, thrillers, and the supernatural that is owned and operated by AMC Networks, is ecstatic to make the announcement of the first teaser for the Shudder Original film Good Madam prior to the film’s premiere on the VOD service on Thursday, July 14.
The South African culture’s generational pain is examined in “Good Madam,” a psychological thriller that premieres on Shudder next month. On this page, you’ll find a pulsating trailer.
The picture is the fourth movie from the renowned South African writer and filmmaker Jenna Cato Bass (High Fantasy, Flatland), and it had its international debut at the 2021 edition of the Toronto International Film Festival, where it received a lot of positive feedback. Good Madam is a horror film that investigates the civilizational trauma that is ingrained in South African culture. The film spans from the previous era to the current day and has a chilling delivery and unnerving outcomes as a result. Good Madam is a genre film that is entrenched in the ordinary everyday horrors that exist in our society.
In addition to Bass, the movie stars Chumisa Cosa, Nosipho Mtebe, Kamvalethu Jonas Raziya, Sanda Shandu, Khanyiso Kenqa, Sizwe Ginger Lubengu, Siya Sikawuti, Peggy Tunyiswa, and Chris Gxalaba, all of whom also share writing credits for the movie.
As per the plot summary, the story of Good Madam focuses on Tsidi, a single mother who is “forced to move in with her estranged mother Mavis,” who is a live-in domestic worker caring obsessively for her catatonic white “Madam” in the affluent suburbs of Cape Town. The film follows Tsidi’s journey as she adjusts to her new living situation with Mavis. However, while Tsidi works to bring her family back to health, “a dreadful spectre starts to rise.”
