Rage (2020)Watch full movie now
In Rage, Showmax’s first Original horror movie, a group of school-leavers descend on a tiny coastal town for a celebration of their freedom. Roxy, Sihle, Kyle, Leon, Tamsyn and Neo party on the beach and drink themselves silly every night. They find the townsfolk, Hermien and her son Albert, welcoming – but are they too welcoming?
On a psychedelic trip on the beach, the friends witness a disturbing birth ritual, which could be a hallucination, or not. Soon fertility figurines start to appear at random places and what is supposed to be the best holiday of their lives turns to horror as the teenagers are picked off one by one…
