Cleopatra Entertainment has acquired the North American distribution rights to the South African horror, THE HEX, following its debut screening at the 2020 Virtual Cannes Film Market. To celebrate the news of the acquisition, Cleopatra Entertainment has unveiled the official poster and trailer for the film, which you can check out below!
The film follows a grieving British girl Dilanne (Coco Lloyd) who unravels her murdered mother’s secrets connected to a South African witch doctor’s curse. She wants to put an end to this haunting hex by traveling to South Africa – but instead gets cast into even deeper sinister depths.
The directorial debut of actress Reine Swart (“Z Nation”, The Lullaby) stars Coco Lloyd (“The X Factor”, Trypophobia), Mary-Anne Barlow (District 9, “Black Sails”), Mari Molefe Van Heerden (Koringberg, Van Nasionale Belang), and Hungani Ndlovu (Because You’re Black, Memoir of an Honest Voice).
The rights deal was brokered by Cleopatra Founder and CEO Brian Perera, Tim Yasui VP/GM of Cleopatra Entertainment, and by Matteo Lovadina and Arnaud Chevalier of the Reel Suspects Sales Agency on behalf of the filmmakers.
THE HEX also releases on DVD on December 15, 2020.
