Around the World in 31 Days: Kenya

Unfortunately, I was unable to find a full length Kenyan horror film. My research pointed me to In the Shadow of Kilimajaro; but it feels more like a British production than Kenyan.

However, I did find on YouTube two terrific horror shorts directed by Sandra Nekh. Her biography is here on Smashwords, and she’s talented indeed. Above all, the shorts below show she’s got quite an eye for composing shots and scenes and creating subtle, creepy atmosphere.

In Knightly (2019) Nekh, along with her actress and collaborator Mphilo, construct an eerie, beautiful and scary nightmare for a young girl, who after falling asleep, is haunted by a menacing, long-nailed apparition.

In 2018, Nekh co-wrote and co-directed Kikulacho with Charles Dart. This short tale appears to involve a father and daughter, and a sinister haunting perhaps indicative of some sort of retribution. The screen shot above again indicates a talent for creating a horror mood.

Let’s get a full length deature film soon!
