Festival Favorite ‘Under the Shadow’ Gets Release Date and Poster
Ahead of its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, Netflix snatched up rights to this Iranian horror film by first-time feature writer/director Babak Anvari. The film quickly earned positive reviews, spreading far and wide in its festival circuit. Unlike Jennifer Kent’s The Babadook, which many drew comparisons to, Under the Shadow has had a much quieter build up. So while festival goers and critics have fallen in love with this atmospheric, supernatural thriller, it’s flown under the radar for many so far.
But that’s about to change. Under the Shadow will see a limited theatrical and VOD release on October 7, 2016 before moving to Netflix. From the sound of it, this is one that’s absolutely meant to be seen in theaters.
