Under the Shadow

Screening: Sunday, May 22, 4:15pm


Starring: Narges Rashidi, Avin Manshadi, and Bobby Naderi

Written and Directed by Babak Anvari

Running Time: 84 minutes

Synopsis: As a mother and daughter struggle to cope with the terrors of the post-revolution, war torn Tehran of the 80s, a mysterious evil begins to haunt their home.

“This is prestige horror, the kind with tricks and treats that arrive with purpose and linger for years.”
-Michael Roffman, Consequence of Sound

“Babak Anvari’s Under the Shadow has echoes of Guillermo Del Toro’s The Devil’s Backbone and Jennifer Kent’s The Babadook in its story of a woman struggling against a supernatural force in a war-torn country.”
-Brian Tallerico, RogerEbert.com
