Review: 'Dachra'

Image for this story

The Tunisian horror film Dachra opens in virtual cinemas tomorrow. Critic Andrew Wyatt has a review of writer-director Abdelhamid Bouchnak's North African spin on the "cannibal hillbilly horror" subgenre:

"Even the most parochial American gorehound will likely find Dachra recognizable, especially by the time the protagonists stumble onto a remote hamlet full of inbred weirdos with bloody gristle between their teeth. It might be set in the land of ancient Carthage, the Fatymid Caliphate, and the Arab Spring, but Bouchnak’s feature is hillbilly horror at heart."
