Dir. Babak Anvari
In Persian with English subtitles
Rating: [M] Horror and supernatural themes
Genres: Foreign Cinema, Horror


“An eerie, often unsettling, Iranian feminist horror film”~Kevin Maher, Times (UK)

Aroview: As a mother and daughter struggle to cope with the terrors of the post-revolution, war-torn Tehran of the 1980s, a mysterious, oppressive force begins to haunt their apartment home.

This is a rare glimpse at genre film-making from the Middle East, and brillianty effective as both a foreboding supernatural thriller and political parable that is unique to its time and place.
