Under The Shadow

Under The Shadow

Under the Shadow’ is the debut feature of Babak Anvari and it rejuvenates genre cinema in a completely unexpected and brilliant way. The Iranian Revolution has just taken place, and a mother and daughter are coping with change in Tehran. But that’s not all. There’s something strange, perhaps not even alive, sharing their house. If you were a fan of ‘The Badabook’ or ‘The Witch’ then this one’s for you; a startlingly original horror film. ★★★★★ “ This is thoughtful, provocative and increasingly scary fare, which succeeds equally as feminist fable, fractured family drama and full-on fright-fest” - Mark Kermode, The Observer★★★★ “This chilling story has something of Polanski and Lynch … It is elegantly shot and very well acted” - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
