Zombies in quarantine hospitals, abandoned windmills filled with scary secrets and survivors of murderous rampages are all headed your way this June, as the films coming up on promise to keep you on the edge of your seat. With more terror than ever before on Africa’s first curated transactional video on demand service dedicated to horror, thriller, sci-fi and everything in-between, Winter is the perfect time to settle in for your dose of fear on demand.

The horror Maggie, starting Arnold Schwarzenegger, Abigail Breslin, Joely Richardson premieres on 19 June. After a couple of weeks seeking out his teenage daughter Maggie, Wade finds her in the quarantine wing of a hospital. Maggie has been infected by a lethal outbreak that transforms the victim into a zombie. Wade’s friend Dr. Vern Kaplan releases Maggie to spend her last days with Wade and her family. Her stepmother Caroline asks Wade to take their little kids to her sister’s house to keep them safe. While Maggie is slowly transformed, Wade stays with her protecting Maggie. But Dr. Vern warns him that the moment that he will have to make a difficult decision is getting closer…

Devanny Pinn, Stacey Dash and Ryan Kiser feature in The Dawn, which premieres on 2 June. The sole survivor of a murderous rampage by her veteran father, Rose is sent to live in a secluded convent in the North Eastern United States. In a series of shocking confessions, Rose reveals she’s being plagued by demonic voices imploring her to ‘kill’. With each passing day her visions gain strength and soon they threaten to shake the Church to its very foundations.

No Winter horror season is complete without a good werewolf film. In Howl, from 5 June, when passengers on a train are attacked by an inexplicable creature, they must band together in order to survive until morning. Will they make it?

In The Windmill Massacre, starring Patrick Baladi, Ben Batt and Charlotte Beaumont, Jennifer is an Australian girl on the run from her past who washes up in Amsterdam. In an attempt to stay one step ahead of the authorities, she joins a group of tourists on a tour of Holland’s famous windmills. When the bus breaks down, she is forced to take shelter in an empty shed bedside a sinister windmill where, legend has it, a Devil-worshipping miller once ground the bones of locals. As members of the group mysteriously start to disappear, Jennifer learns that they all have something in common – a shared secret that marks them all for doom. Find out what happens to them from 19 June 2020.
