    The shift from family drama to djinn game is so subtle as to be barely perceived

    Intimate horror about the dark things lurking in a family home, and, more interestingly, in the minds of women.

    Did you honestly doubt that peeling duct tape and a sheet of printed fabric, if handled with imaginative brio, could be as frightening as any ten-million-dollar monster? O ye of little faith.

    There is no escape, for characters or audience. Under the Shadow is unnerving in the extreme.

    Quietly nerve-pricking ...

    The most consistent fear in Anvari's film is that of being a mother and daughter alone in a world that won't help or respect you. Far more so than djinn, this is a fear that doesn't easily dissipate.

    With a minimal budget, [Babak] Anvari still manages to deliver a wholly unnerving universe.

    A sinister tapestry of urban unease and feminist fury that turns an ordinary domestic setting into a place of skulking terror. Original and deeply creepy.

    Anvari makes great use of this highly specific time and setting -- the air raids are always unnerving and one sequence in which Shideh runs into the empty streets of Tehran in a panic is just terrific.

    'Under the Shadow' is one of the more technically graceful and emotionally important films to come out of the genre this year.

    Those unexpected beats make for a deeply emotional and harrowing journey for not only Shideh and Dorsa, but for viewers as well.
