BAFTA Award Winner 2017 – Outstanding Debut by a British Writer, Director or Producer!
I won’t say this supernatural thriller set in Tehran during the height of the Iran-Iraq war, where a mother and young daughter struggle to cope with the terror of almost nightly bombardments, while also haunted by a malevolent spirit, is the scariest film of the year, but, like The Babadook, it’s damn scary!
