THE UNFAMILIAR : A British Army doctor came back from a war and believed that she had PTSD only to find that there was more daunting malice in her work, which made her know a life she was not familiar with.
What if you encounter a certain supernatural phenomenon in your house, but everyone around you shrugs as a mental health condition? This is the background of “Strangers”, a creepy British horror movie that has just released a new trailer. In the film of director Henk Pretorius, a military doctor returns home from the war and begins to experience the creepy in her house. Her family thought it was PTSD. But… if not?
The film’s exploration of Hawaiian mythology sounds like a new approach to this material.
Interpreting the Hawaiian mythology and the meaning of each cultural reference in “A stranger in Hawaii” may feel like assembling a complicated puzzle with a protagonist. A puzzle made up of small pieces is left for the audience to find and ultimately make them meaningful. Hawaii is often portrayed as an idyllic holiday destination, with friendly locals serving tourists. But a closer look, you will find a large number of mythological creatures, beliefs and mysteries incorporated into the hearts of Native Hawaiians (Kanaka Maoli). The stranger explored some of these mythological characters and combined ancient rituals (empathy) with Hawaiian wizards (Kahuna).
Actors include Jemima West, Christopher Dane, Rebecca Hanssen, Rachel Lin, Harry McMillan (Harry McMillan) The script was co-written by the director of McMillan-Hunt and the director of Henk Pretorius, Jennifer Nicole Stang. The film will be released on August 21, 2020.
