Terrific terrifying terror. Excellent war themed horror movie. Pretty mind opening for western viewers
It's hard to put politics aside with a movie like this. I've always heard that Iran was an interesting place. I've been told that they were very "modern" up until the Islam takeover of the country. It showed me a side of the Middle East that the western audience rarely see; not only being a victim of the war, but the hatred and aversion for it.
This movie takes the subject of the war and the naturally occurring horror and dread one would feel in the midst of a war-torn country and engages that into a chilling story. It doesn't feel exploitative; it feels more like a message.
Eerie and creepy with a very subdued atmosphere, but still with a sense of urgency.
