Stanley’s Film Club Halloween Special: Under the Shadow

November 1 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

Join us this Halloween for a beautifully crafted Iranian ghost story guaranteed to chill you to the bone and make you jump out of your skin.

Tehran, 1988. Shideh lives amid the chaos of the Iran-Iraq war. Accused of subversion and blacklisted from medical college, she is in a state of malaise. Furthermore, her husband is at war, leaving her alone to protect their young daughter, Dorsa. Shortly after a missile hits their apartment building but fails to explode, Dorsa falls ill and her behaviour becomes increasingly disturbed.

Searching for answers, Shideh learns from a superstitious neighbour that the cursed, unexploded missile might have brought in djinns – malevolent spirits that travel on the wind. Convinced that a supernatural force within the building is attempting to possess Dorsa, Shideh finds she has no choice but to confront it if she is to save her daughter.

 

PLUS SHORT:

The Body (2013) by Paul Davis

A professional killer discovers he can get away with anything on Halloween night, including dragging his latest victim around as a prop amidst a sea of oblivious London party goers. Cert 15.

A licensed bar will be available serving beers and wines.
