Review: Someone got a little overzealous with the Photoshopping as the mother’s face looks as if it were created from an animated film cell. The construction of the poster fits within the narrative of the film well enough, but the image itself is dull and vacant.

Trailer Rating: B

Review: Iran seems to be putting out a lot of fascinating looking horror films lately, this being the latest. With the tension and economic struggles in Iran, it’s no surprise. We could see a new genre birthed in the Iranian horror film and this looks like a very interesting entry in that.

Oscar Prospects:

None.
