If you want to see a horror movie with lots of deaths, blood and violence, this movie is definitely not for you. If, however, you are a true fan of the genre and are looking for something new, if you can actually look past the language barrier and want to see an actual plot that gradually evolves in a slow-burn kind of way as opposed to watching the kind of horror movies where you can just "turn your brain off" and enjoy the mindless fun without giving it a second thought , then you should give this movie a chance, by all means.

If possible, you should watch this in theaters to really get the "experience", otherwise watching it at home won't probably pack the same kind of punch, but I guess everyone is different in that aspect.

Just be sure to actually invest all of your senses when watching it! Like I said, don't go expecting a gore-filled horror fest. This is a movie that actually aims to do justice to the Horror genre and the scares it delivers In western culture movies become iconic quickly.

For example, entire generations who missed the original Star Wars film can nonetheless recite dialog from it.

Horrow films fit the same mold. The tropes, tricks, plot arcs and even to a large degree the SFX become familiar over time because they are part of the overall experience you expect.

But what happens when a horror fan experiences a film from a different culture? Are the building blocks the same One of the clearest exponents of this issue is this film, a modern "horror" film produced in an Islamic country that is known neither for its horror films nor really for its interest in films at all.

It is good enough to stand on its own as a horror piece. In fact, it's only possible failing -- that it builds so slowly and gradually -- can in fact be considered a major strength.

It may well be that, in the west, film-makers who lack the skill to "layer" their suspense raise the temperature far too quickly?

However when you consider the obvious incorporation of allegory and metaphor to overlay the plight of the heroine in her real life against her plight in the supernatural realm..

Not preachy. Just interesting. I saw this at the Phoenix Film Festival. I'd say this is tied for my favourite horror movie from that festival with Eyes of my Mother Ghost movies are really the only horror films that stand of chance of scaring me these days.

There were a few times during this film that I was completely tense, and a few times, absolutely on the verge of terror as to what was going to happen next.

The film was just so well done in terms of pacing. Unfortunately, ghost movies also suffer from poor endings, quite frequently.

This ending was better than most, but something about it didn't sit right with me, and that's all I'll say to prevent spoilers. You may disagree entirely.

I'm a tough one on endings. I really hope this gets a wide distribution, because if you're at all a fan of ghost movies, this movie is just fantastic.

A definite must see! I had already read some reviews and everybody was speechless about it. The film takes place in Iran somewhere in the 80's when the Iran-Iraq war was on.

Shideh and Dorsa, a mother and a daughter, find themselves "abandoned and unprotected" after the father has to leave in order to give his services as a doctor in the war zone.

This is when they start realizing that something evil haunts them in their apartment, and there is not much they can do to escape since it's dangerous to leave their home.

Many compare it to 's "Babadook". I can see why but at the same time I don't see so many relations to each other.

The only thing that I know is that there were moments that I seriously considered turning the lights on for a while Sometimes the graphics were not that great, definitely not disappointing but seriously, I didn't mind at all.

Narges Rashidi's acting is a huge plus for the movie as long as the direction. Scary, touching, simple though powerful, "Under the Shadow" is a pleasant surprise not only for the horror genre but for cinema in general.

I fancy myself a devout Horror enthusiast, so I was very happy to expand my horizons by trying a Persian one.

That, and the trailer and available description on Netflix intrigued me. Unfortunately for me, Under The Shadow if far from meeting my personal standards of a Horror film, set by years of Hollywood conditioning as they may be.

Aside from a few well-placed and finely utilized jump scares which are still and forever will be a cheap trick and nothing more and the presence of said malevolent supernatural entity - there is nothing scary about the film and hardly anything to justify its Horror tag.

Now, keep in mind that besides jump scares I'm also not a fan of excessive blood, pointless gore of torture porn. I have quite typical demands from Horror films, mainly that they should invoke certain sensations of fear and discomfort.

Under The Shadow does do that, but at the bare minimum level. Having a supernatural spirit as an ambiguous antagonist doesn't qualify as Horror more than "Casper the Friendly Ghost" does a deliberate exaggeration of course.

Having said all that - Under the Shadow is an excellent film as a profound anthropological documentation of Persian culture and social patterns following the religious revolution and during the Iran-Iraq war.

The presentation of the Djins, the conflicted woman of science and medicine forced to comply with primitive religious laws of female degradation and the neighborly cooperative coping with living under missile fire are all described and presented beautifully.

The acting is superb by all characters, especially young Avin Manshadi Dorsa showing very impressive talent. As a cultural piece, Under The Shadow is a rare and remarkable gem.

All in all, I personally believe anyone watching this film in expectations or hopes of Horror would be quite disappointed. It would take active effort to feel any form of fear while watching, aside from the physiological forced reactions to startling jump scares.

However, anyone looking for a compelling story of family, cultural society and life during war in the context of Iranian life would be greatly entertained.

In the 80's, during the war between the Islamic post-revolutionary Iran and Iraq, the former leftist medical student Shideh Narges Rashidi tries to return to the university but is barred by the dean.

The upset Shideh returns home and when her husband Dr. Iraj Bobby Naderi is assigned to work in a war zone, she refuses to move to his parent's house with their daughter Dorsa Avin Manshadi.

Shideh prefers to stay in her apartment with Dorsa, who loves her doll Kimia and has constant fever. Dorsa is afraid of demoniac Djinns and when Shideh asks who told her about the legend, she tells that her friend that lives downstairs.

Shideh visits her neighbor and asks his mother to tell her son to not tell horror stories to Dorsa and she learns that the boy is mute.

Then Kimia and Shideh's Jane Fonda workout tape disappear. When a missile strikes their building, the neighbors decide to leave Tehran, but Shideh stays in the apartment with Dorsa, who is increasingly disturbed.

Soon Shideh reads about Djinns and finds that there is an evil entity in the apartment. Further she must find Kimia; otherwise Dorsa will be in danger since the Djinn will be attached to her.

The difference to the Western cultures is another attraction of this film, such as punishment of the woman for not wearing headscarf or for having a videocassette at home.

The story has elements from "The Babadook" but is better than the film. The conclusion is open for a sequel, like most of the films of this genre.

My vote is seven. Title Brazil : Not Available. The best horror film at this year's Sundance Film Festival was without a doubt Babak Anvari's debut feature.

Similar to Jennifer Kent's The BABADOOK , this Britain- based Iranian filmmaker has crafted an insanely terrifying and emotionally charged nightmare that had people screaming out loud as well as covering their faces for much of the film.

Set in Tehran during the Iran-Iraq war , a young mother Shideh stunningly portrayed by the mesmerizing Narges Rashidi , attempts to hold her family together as the walls of the world are literally falling down around her.

Combining surreal psychological terror, heartbreaking social issue trauma, and downright face- slapping shocks, Anvari has achieved not only one of the scariest films of the decade, but a call for action against the looming horrors for women within their family, in their career, and in their war-ridden cities.

Review taken from my Sundance Film Festival wrap up at www. HorrorOverEverything 31 October The first thing that stood out about this film was it's unique setting for a horror flick, it take's place in 's Iran during War Of The Cities.

Our main character Shideh Played by Narges Rashidi has just learned that she won't be able to attend Medical school due to her background in activism.

On top of all that her husband is being drafted to fight in the war leaving Shideh in a war torn country raising her daughter alone. It definitely did not feel like the usual set up to a horror movie, in fact if I hadn't known before hand that this was a Horror flick I probably would have just assumed it was a Drama depicting live in Iran during a hard time.

So as the story progresses the horror elements are introduced, Shideh's daughter starts having trouble sleeping because she is afraid of Djinn Demons.

Some paranormal things start happening around the house and eventually things do get a little creepy. This part of the movie started to drag a bit a bit on the tension died down a bit for me.

There are some scares that were well done and caught me off guard, however a few were too obvious and came off a bit too cheesy.

Overall the second half is good but parts of it just felt like a run of the mill ghost movie. Plus the last fifteen minutes or so kind of fell flat on me, I felt like that was suppose to be a big tense scene but I just wasn't feeling it.

I enjoyed "Under The Shadow", it has it's flaws but it does enough right to make it a worthwhile experience.

If you are interested in watching a decent ghost movie that has very interesting setting then this one if worth a watch, it doesn't do anything mind blowing but it does a good enough job at being an effective horror film.

As more residents leave the building, the paranormal incidents only intensifies inside their apartment. Spearheading the acting department is Narges Rashidi in the role of the mother who's still reeling from the revolution's impact on her life, which only worsens when a series of inexplicable activities begin unfolding in her apartment.

And supporting her all the way through is Avin Manshadi who is in as her daughter and both of them play their part convincingly.

It's a good film. A touching drama about a war torn family and people living in fear in a period of war. Good production value and good acting, too.

So, why the three stars? Because it claims to be a horror film. The horror part of the film, which consists of standard jump scare mostly, comes after a very long while, few and far in between, and not scary at all.

The potential is there, considering the culture which is religion-heavy behind the story, but it's not explored enough.

If you're looking for a horror film, and you're thinking, "Ooh, this must be unique because it's a foreign film," this is not the one. If there is one thing horror movies do best, it's taking real life, psychological fears and making them as tangible as possible, forcing us to experience the dread that we prefer to push into the back of our minds, yet this is something often traded out for cheap shock in horror movies today.

While "Under the Shadow" may miss a few beats in terms of its actual scares, it is an atmospheric and smart film that is about the real oppression that many people had to deal with and how it affects its main character.

It takes place in Iran during the 80s, a very divisive time in the country's history, when Iranians could be bombed by Iraq at any moment.

Anyone who didn't follow their strict rules was horribly punished, and one could be discriminated against for their past political views, and the end of the war was nowhere in sight.

Amidst the terrors of war-torn post-revolutionary Tehran in the s, former medical student Shideh is barred from resuming her studies because of her involvement with student leftist groups.

Upon returning home, she gets rid of most of her old medical textbooks, but keeps a book of medical physiology given to her by her deceased mother.

As the war between Iran and Iraq intensifies, Shideh elects to stay in the city with her daughter Dorsa despite the protests of her husband Iraj, a doctor who is called into military service and assigned to an area of heavy fighting.

Iraj wants Shideh to stay with his parents in a safer part of the country, but Shideh refuses. Dorsa is upset to see her father go, and Iraj promises her that her favorite doll, Kimia, will protect her.

A new boy moves in with the neighboring Ebrahimi family, who are his cousins; his parents were killed in an attack.

During a shelling, he whispers something into Dorsa's ear and hands her a charm to ward off evil spirits.

Dorsa tells Shideh that the boy told her about the legend of the Djinn , and that the charm would protect her, though Shideh throws it away.

Shideh visits Mrs. Ebrahimi, who informs her that the boy has been mute ever since the death of his parents. Dorsa develops a fever and has a slew of nightmares, and Shideh is also haunted by bad dreams.

Her PTSD grows worse but she is in denial and doesn't recognize being in a state of shock from the psychological stress and trauma of living in a warzone.

During another shelling, a missile strikes their building, and an upstairs neighbor dies of a heart attack. Kimia goes missing in the commotion, and Dorsa insists that someone took her.

Her behavior also becomes more disturbed and erratic; she insists there is a strange presence in the house, and repeatedly tries to get into the upper floor, believing that Kimia is there.

The daughter of the deceased neighbor visits Shideh and claims that her father was unaffected by the missile impact but she found him looking terrified, as if he had seen a ghost.

The neighbors gradually begin to leave to escape the fighting. Ebrahimi warns Shideh that djinns may possess humans, and they will steal a beloved personal item of their victims.

The Ebrahimis leave too, until Dorsa and Shideh are the only two inhabitants left in the building. Shideh's nightmares get worse, and her own items start to go missing.

Her nightmares escalate to visions involving a floating chador that moves like a ghost. Dorsa admits to seeing the same apparitions, but claims that the ghostly woman in the chador wants to help her find Kimia.

Shideh finally wants to leave to go to her husband's parents, but Dorsa refuses to leave until Kimia is found. Official Sites.

The Babadook under the shadow

Was this review helpful? Sign in to vote. This is a film about war and its atrocities. The primary goal of the film is obviously not to be a horror film.

During the Iran-Iraq war and especially after Saddam's missiles landed in many parts of Iran, many were affected psychologically.

Children who started screaming, adults with PTSD, depression and many many more psychological problems. Imagine fearing any moment that a bomb or a missile could land in your home.

It's a hundred times scarier than any supernatural phenomena. The background of the film is Tehran, Iran in the 80s during the war.

The supernatural elements whether imagined by the main character or supposed to be real beautifully symbolize the ugliness and squalor of war.

If you are looking to be entertained by a purely horror film, this may not be the best choice, as there is more to it. You may be disappointed as you may tune out of anything non-horror and the rest of the film will seem tedious to watch.

However, if you do not expect to be scared the entire time, and just watch it as a film about a family during the war, I guarantee that you will smile, cry and be crept out of your wits a few times.

Even though I was paying more attention to the story line rather than waiting to be scared, I had a hard time walking upstairs alone to my bedroom after watching this.

I am a horror film fan and I am not easily scared anymore, but I had not been so terrified in years. I give it a nine because the resolution at the end is not complete.

I usually like closure at the end of the film, but again, that could mean that until the war is over, evil has not gone away. Impressive debut, memorable film.

I had been following the recent festival news regarding "Under the Shadow", and shortly after it premiered at the Sundance Film Festival it was promptly acquired by Netflix.

The fact that Netflix snagged it right away from other major distributors should be a real indicator of how much of a winner this movie really is.

Most people will dismiss "Under the Shadow" right away after seeing the PG rating. Give it a chance, and you won't regret it.

This movie doesn't rely on cheap jump scares. The way the movie is paced, it actually lets the tension and intensity accumulate, little by little, and the scares that it delivers, although few in number, are guaranteed to leave a mark.

The Djinn, the so-called "monster" in this movie, is nothing short of amazing given the story and the context, and he's not something you're likely to forget any time soon.

I will, however, do the same thing that other reviewers and critics have done before me, and I won't say anything further on this "entity", besides the fact that it's an extremely refreshing, new and interesting concept for the whole "monster movie".

Go see the movie, and hopefully you'll not only be surprised and amazed, but also equally terrified. Narges Rashidi, who plays the mother Shideh , has a strong and gripping role, but in my humble opinion it was actually Avin Manshadi who plays her daughter, Dorsa, the one who stole the show.

In general, people think of kids in horror movies as annoying, and all-around bad actors who just don't have it in them to actually act the part in what's supposed to be a scary, horrifying film.

In a nutshell, Avin Manshadi blew me away. The way she delivered her lines, how she acted, the very different ways she looked at her mother given the context, how she looked at her surroundings, and the fact that her gaze also never looked at the "camera" or anything of the sort, that certainly elevated the movie to something else entirely.

Babak Anvari Director is definitely on my list of people to keep an eye out for, especially when you consider that this was his first feature film.

Extremely impressive, and there's no doubt in my mind that this young director has a lot to offer to the world of filmmaking in general, although I'd very much like to see him tackle some more horror projects.

If you want to see a horror movie riddled with cheap jump scares that provide easy chuckles and giggles, this movie is not for you.

If you want to see a horror movie with lots of deaths, blood and violence, this movie is definitely not for you.

If, however, you are a true fan of the genre and are looking for something new, if you can actually look past the language barrier and want to see an actual plot that gradually evolves in a slow-burn kind of way as opposed to watching the kind of horror movies where you can just "turn your brain off" and enjoy the mindless fun without giving it a second thought , then you should give this movie a chance, by all means.

Anyone who didn't follow their strict rules was horribly punished, and one could be discriminated against for their past political views, and the end of the war was nowhere in sight.

The film begins with Shideh attempting to finish her medical studies, but being turned down for her past political views.

Her mother has just died, and she always dreamed that Shideh would be a doctor. Her husband, while loving, doesn't seem very supportive, and they get in an argument which details her past, showing that her husband has subtly oppressed her in the past.

He leaves for work around a time that rumors begin to surface about Iraq bombings. He insists she take her daughter to his parents' house, and she denies, mostly as a way to prove that she can take care of her daughter.

However, after the first bombing, Shideh begins to lose control of her daughter, who starts to talk to supernatural beings brought on by the anxiety and fear caused by the attacks.

Most people begin leaving, and soon she is left alone, desperately clinging to her daughter, but often failing.

The horror is said to be supernatural, but it is mostly brought upon by her fear that she is useless. She fears that since she can't be a doctor, she must be a good mother, but everything around her is telling her she is failing.

As far as the actual scares go, they are executed impressively for the most part. The shots are held just as long as they need to be held in order to build tension, and cuts are made at the right moments.

There are a few jump scares that felt predictable such as the first dream sequence, and moments towards the end , but most are built up perfectly and used just sparingly enough to truly be unaware of what would happen next.

A few moments during the climax felt dragged out, as tends to happen with many horror films, good and bad. But what is most striking about this film is its atmosphere.

It has a very dream-like atmosphere and some of the imagery is pretty hard to forget. Nemesis42 3 February I connected with the main character so well this became an intense experience for me.

It is good to see a paranormal thriller set amongst the environs of a country at war, and in a place where lashes can be dished out for not wearing hijab's.

The neighbors gradually begin to leave to escape the fighting. Ebrahimi warns Shideh that djinns may possess humans, and they will steal a beloved personal item of their victims.

The Ebrahimis leave too, until Dorsa and Shideh are the only two inhabitants left in the building.

Shideh's nightmares get worse, and her own items start to go missing. Her nightmares escalate to visions involving a floating chador that moves like a ghost.

Dorsa admits to seeing the same apparitions, but claims that the ghostly woman in the chador wants to help her find Kimia. Shideh finally wants to leave to go to her husband's parents, but Dorsa refuses to leave until Kimia is found.

Shideh receives a call seemingly from Iraj, but the caller begins to berate her for being a poor mother, as the djinn did.

Shideh finds a mutilated Kimia, which upsets Dorsa. Shideh repairs Kimia with tape, but when they are about to leave, another air raid siren goes off.

Shideh promises Dorsa that they will escape, but while going down to the shelter, she hears Dorsa's screams. She panics, believing that the Dorsa she left with is another apparition, and returns home to find Dorsa.

She sees what appears to be Dorsa under their bed, but when trying to rescue her, she discovers with horror that it is an apparition.

Escaping to the shelter, she finds the real Dorsa. The two are attacked by the chador apparition, which separates the two before Shideh manages to find Dorsa.

She urges Dorsa back up the stairs but is trapped when the floor begins to suck her down. Dorsa rescues Shideh and the two escape to the car, and Shideh drives them to Iraj's parents.

However, it is revealed that Kimia's detached head was left behind and Shideh's medical textbook is still in the djinn's possession, implying they may still be harassed.
