Tigers Are Not Afraid

Issa López's film earned raving reviews during the last months, and in August “Tigers Are Not Afraid“ is officially hitting US screens. The rest of the world probably has to wait until it's released on Shudder.

“A haunting horror fairytale set against the backdrop of Mexico’s devastating drug wars, TIGERS ARE NOT AFRAID follows a group of orphaned children armed with three magical wishes, running from the ghosts that haunt them and the cartel that murdered their parents. Filmmaker Issa López creates a world that recalls the early films of Guillermo del Toro, imbued with her own gritty urban spin on magical realism to conjure a wholly unique experience that audiences will not soon forget.“
