After a missile strikes an apartment building in Tehran, a tenant begins to believe her daughter’s erratic behavior is a result of supernatural forces released by the explosion.
After Shideh’s building is hit by a missile during the Iran-Iraq War, a superstitious neighbor suggests that the missile was cursed and might be carrying malevolent Middle-Eastern spirits. She becomes convinced a supernatural force within the building is attempting to possess her daughter Dorsa, and she has no choice but to confront these forces if she is to save her daughter and herself.
“There is no escape, for characters or audience. Under the Shadow is unnerving in the extreme.” – RogerEbert.com
“The jump scares are solid, and earned. The suspense is genuine. And Under the Shadow never loses sight of the basic human reality of mother and child, trapped at home, encircled by a variety of evils, both real and imagined.” – Village Voice
“As much a study of a changing society as it is a story of evil spirits. The movie is first fascinating, then terrifying.” – Los Angeles Times
“Under the Shadow smartly observes the emotions stirred up by a world defined by restrictions, and the terrifying possibility that they might be inescapable.” – IndieWire
