Another horror for this month for some reason, happy summer! Babak Anvari's impressively subtle ghost story follows a mother and her daughter as they attempt to live in Tehran in the aftermath of the revolution. Daily life gets increasingly perilous even before the evil enters their home. This claustrophobic, tightly wound movie makes great use of its location and the viewer is never entirely sure how much of the evil is in Shideh (Narges Rashidi)'s mind and how much of it is real.
