Watch Out: Zimbabwe's 1st Sci-Fi Movie "The Signal" Releases Trailer On Friday The 13th

Zimbabwean Actor and Filmmaker Daniel Lasker have released the trailer of The Signal, today Friday the 13th. The Signal is a 20-minute Ndebele short film with English Subtitles starring Tawanda Denga, Dumie Manyathela, and Natasha Dlamini filmed on location in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe.

Daniel kicked the project's rollout plan three days ago by announcing the film on his social media pages."...It’s an honor to be able to create and tell unique stories in my home country, with Zimbabwean Actors and Crew." said Daniel Lasker in a statement.

To add to the hype, The trailer was released today, Friday the 13th, the most unlucky day on the calendar according to a superstition that dates back to the middle ages, where weddings were not held on Friday and people never traveled on a Friday. 

Hollywood filmmakers have since commercialized this superstition by releasing twelve Friday the 13th horror films. "Trailer drops this Friday 13th of May!" wrote Daniel Lasker on Instagram about the short film composed of a very small team of crew and cast. "Shoutout to our small, talented, and hardworking team that brought this project to life." he said.

The Signal is Zimbabwe's first-ever Ndebele Sci-fi film whose synopsis reads; "A deadly sound transmitted from space known as "The Signal", corrupts the minds of all who hear it, turning them into soulless Demons under its control."

The movie's full credits are as follows:
