Under the Shandow

This is one gem of a horror movie which should not be missed. This movie proves that we do not need expensive visual effects to scare. This is a simple story of a family n the background of Iran-Iraq war. The movie starts off as a political movie and moves on as a family drama and slowly builds up the tension.

This movie doesn't give any reasons for the demons to do what they do which adds to the tension.

A satisfying scary watch.

It peaked in Linga to an extent people like to forget that such a movie was made. But if you ask me Linga was a decent attempt compared to some of the recently celebrated movies.

Now social media is filled with so cal…
