Wow, kandisha was fun! And I don't mean generic fun, but stylish and somewhat new with its foreign background tale.
Kandisha opens up with a bunch of issues that occupy the headlines of this past decade. Such as racism(associated with classism) and abuse of women(domestic or sexual). The answer to the latter is kandisha. The spirit of foreign temptress who takes revenge on men. Our one white character in the movie is the one to associate with the foreign legendary creature. Well? Flows my mind with thoughts. What is kandisha in this political arena? Maybe the furious cancel culture? All the other participants are classified and emphasized by their title: Arab, black, white, man. Which just heightens for me the the feeling I'm watching their world through the glasses of some political correctness magazine.
But without going too deep into interpreting, i can simply say I watched it without looking away. It was real fun and had a perfect flow.
I mean... you can tell it was low budget. And yet the kills were so artistic and good. Let's not take that for granted. Reminded me of final destination, as I was awaiting the next supernatural crazy death.
The acting stood out for me as well. The little known lead was very impressive as the rough and emotionally menaced Amelie. I wanna see more of her.
It did not have one bad thing about it. It just wasn't big. And maybe that's why some people don't like it. I guess it's true. It would've been much more appreciated as a TV movie. You know, it wasn't the kind you advertise as a blockbuster or a Hollywood epic. It was small scale. And I'm really happy I watched it.
It is summer break and best friends Amélie, Bintou and Morjana hang together with the neighborhood teenagers. At night, they have fun sharing goosebumps stories and urban legends. But when Amélie is assaulted by her ex, she remembers the story of Kandisha, a powerful and vengeful demon. Afraid, upset, she summons her. The next day, her ex is found dead. The legend is true and now Kandisha in on a killing spree. The three girls will do anything to break the curse.
