I just watched this last night and loved it. Had been wanting to check it out since Netflix scooped it up at Sundance this past January, and no lie, it lived up to the hype.
I was confident I would be underwhelmed. I had no doubt in my mind. I was happily surprised and can’t wait to purchase this little gem. It’s quiet, sure, but it’s unnerving. It’s not a typical horror film with a lot of scares, but when it wants to scare you, it’s like a fine-tuned stream of cold water was turned on inside your bones. It’s a really tight, smart, creepy little film with a surprisingly authentic take on Iran, its people and the Iran-Iraq war.
No lie, this is the real deal. Let me know if any of you get a chance to check it out.
