The South African horror film Blood Tokoloshe, helmed by Jordan Harland, premiered at the 2013 Durban Film Festival this week. 

Tokoloshewhich has secured a DVD distribution deal and a letter of intent for a TV broadcast, according to the film's FB page  - raised just over $5,000 via the film's Indiegogo campaign back in February of this year.

In the horror film, a businessman conjures a Tokoloshe (an African demon mythological figure) curse in the quest for women and wealth. However, in exchange, the curse has claimed the lives of several of the township's women. 

Here's more about the film:

In the film strange attacks plague the township’s women and the community are at a loss to defend them. After each attack Mthunzi, a shrewd businessman, becomes wealthier and more popular with the ladies - something is amiss. Mthunzi has, with help of a corrupted sangoma, conjured a Tokoloshe curse that brings him wealth and women in exchange for blood. He unexpectedly falls in love and in order to win her heart, breaks the golden rule of controlling the beast and unleashing it on a rampage. Now the monster has an unquenchable thirst for blood and goes after Mthunzi's lovers, killing them one by one. His only chance is to turn to the township’s reverend, to save the woman he loves.

The film stars Msimbithi, Petunia Modisapodi, Simon Nwamba, Vera Ephraim and Siphiwe Masinga.
