Critic Reviews of "Under the Shadow"San Diego ReaderNovember 18, 2016
The shift from family drama to djinn game is so subtle as to be barely perceivedBuzzFeed NewsOctober 19, 2016
Intimate horror about the dark things lurking in a family home, and, more interestingly, in the minds of women.New YorkerOctober 10, 2016
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.RogerEbert.comOctober 07, 2016
There is no escape, for characters or audience. Under the Shadow is unnerving in the extreme.New York TimesOctober 06, 2016
Quietly nerve-pricking ...NPROctober 06, 2016
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.New Zealand HeraldFebruary 17, 2017
With a minimal budget, [Babak] Anvari still manages to deliver a wholly unnerving universe.Flick FilosopherJanuary 26, 2017
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.Film ExperienceJanuary 02, 2017
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.Legion of LeiaDecember 29, 2016
'Under the Shadow' is one of the more technically graceful and emotionally important films to come out of the genre this year.Daily DeadDecember 21, 2016
Those unexpected beats make for a deeply emotional and harrowing journey for not only Shideh and Dorsa, but for viewers as well.
