Official US Trailer for Outstanding Iranian Horror 'Under the Shadow'
"There's no escape from them." Vertical Ent. has unveiled the US trailer for a horror-thriller called Under the Shadow, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival this year. This outstanding ghost story is set in Tehran and stars Narges Rashidi and Avin Manshadi as mother and daughter who are haunted by a malevolent spirit after an unexploded bomb crashes into the apartment above theirs. Also features Bobby Naderi, Ray Haratian and Arash Marandi. I saw this at Sundance and loved it, writing in my review it's a "simple, sleek, well-made film that above all is efficient in telling a creepy ghost story." Don't skip this one.
Here's the official US trailer (+ poster) for Babak Anvari's Under the Shadow, originally from Yahoo:
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. Under the Shadow is both written and directed by Iranian filmmaker Babak Anvari (on Twitter @babakanvari), making his feature directing debut after a few shorts previously including the BAFTA nominated short Two & Two. The film premiered at this year's Sundance Film Festival (read my review) and won awards at a few other festivals. Vertical Entertainment will release Under the Shadow in select US theaters starting October 7th this fall. Go see this in theaters.
