About the Film:
Ends Thursday, November 3.
As a mother and daughter struggle to cope with the terrors of the post-revolution, war-torn Tehran of the 1980s, a mysterious evil begins to haunt their home.
Iranian-born director Babk Anvari makes his debut with the critically-acclaimed horror film that made a splash at Sundance.
The Hollywood reporter says: "Comparison seems inevitable at first with the intense domestic dramas of fellow Iranian director Asghar Farhadi, notably A Separation. But Anvari is merely controlling our expectations as he prepares his fright assault, putting a mother and child in the kind of psycho-supernatural peril that recalls any number of genre standouts, from Poltergeist to The Babadook."
