Under the shadow, which was universally acclaimed with an almost 100 percent critics approval rating, will be available in VOD as of January 10, 2017.
The first co-produced horror film directed and written by Babak Anvari was a success. In its triumphant debut, the director wanted to portray the suffering that the population suffered in the Tehran of 1980 because of the War of the cities. For this, he used a supernatural horror story in which a mother and her daughter (Nargues Rashidi and Avin Mashandi, respectively) are harassed by a paranormal entity.
The film premiered worldwide at this year’s Sudance Film Festival with an incredible reception. Even Netflix (USA) did not hesitate to acquire the rights to the tape and be able to include it in their streaming collection.
For those who could not enjoy it at the last Molins Horror Film Festival 2016 in big screen, in Spain you will be able to see Under the Shadow in VOD from 10 January 2017 at a very affordable price taking into account the quality of the film.

Under the Shadow is set in Tehran, during the 80’s, in the middle of a tense post-revolutionary atmosphere. A mother and her daughter are alone at their apartment when the building is evacuated. When most people have left, little Dorsa will start seeing strange presences round the house; at first, the mother is not going to pay much attention because she thinks that the girl’s real problem is the tension in which they are living.
