Lazarus persuades William to hire him in spite of Sarah’s reservations. Afterward, he successfully forges a kindred bond with Mary, who, like him, still aches for her lost kin.


But among the locals, Lazarus is an unwelcome menace. He carries a dark secret in his sack: a demon reincarnation of his deceased daughter with an insatiable appetite for human souls.


In his pursuit to calm her, he facilitates several deaths and killings in the village, drawing the circle closer to the Ziels.


A personal connection to the story of loss and guilt was the inspiration behind  “8”, according to the writer and director Harold Holscher. Also, he’s always had a fascination for the genre of horror and exploring South Africa’s culture of superstitions.


“I love that one can take personal strife and place it within a film that can be watched and is relatable. The horror genre is a great genre to do this in, and I hope people enjoy and appreciate this for what it is”.


Set a reminder for “8” as it promises intrigue, horror, and premium entertainment.
