(Dekanalog Presents: "Dachra")

The new film from Tunisia, “Dachra” is an interesting mix of thriller and horror genres. While some of the material will seem familiar (journalists exploring a story that leads them into a perilous situation), the execution of the narrative is what drives this film forward.

Without giving too much away, there are scenes in the film that are extraordinarily creepy. The atmosphere and the uneasiness at times is a great selling point of the movie.

The characters are somewhat underdeveloped and at times aggravating but that only actually adds to the mystery of what is going on in the film.

There are more pros than cons to “Dachra” and I think with a few more films under his belt, first-time director Abdelhamid Bouchnak will hit his stride in no time.

Worth seeking out.
