Moonlight Cross, Zimbabwe’s first fantasy horror movie?

Let’s be honest fantasy horror movies are very difficult to make, not only from a budget point of view but also from a technical skill point of view, but that hasn’t stopped three producers from Bulawayo Mhle Nzima, Gani Phiri and Percy Soko have teamed up to  venture into the unknown. A territory were no Zollywood movie has ever gone before.

Moonlight Cross is a story about a boy who is raised from the dead as a slave to a powerful family of witches. His quest to free his soul from bondage is wrought with horror,thrills, love and sacrifice, as if that’s not creepy enough, he tries to desperately reconnect with his past.

I have faith in genius cinematographer King Krued and master storyteller Mhle Nzima. They're the best at what they do. With or without the recognition.


I am not going to hold my breath just yet. Often, I have been disappointed. I need something good for once to inspire some sort of confidence.
