Tigers Are Not Afraid
Directed by Issa López
A haunting horror fairytale set against the backdrop of Mexico’s devastating drug wars, TIGERS ARE NOT AFRAID follows a group of orphaned children armed with three magical wishes, running from the ghosts that haunt them and the cartel that murdered their parents. Filmmaker Issa López creates a world that recalls the early films of Guillermo del Toro, imbued with her own gritty urban spin on magical realism to conjure a wholly unique experience that audiences will not soon forget. A SHUDDER EXCLUSIVE.

Cast: Paola Lara, Hanssel Casillas, Rodrigo Cortes, Ianis Guerrero, Tenoch Huerta
A strong performance from the young actors. An interesting storyline to keep one engaged.
A depressing setting with a script that hardly tries to get you to feel for any of the kids aside from the little girl because she's the only orphan that isn't a thief. Despite having moments that feel like they are supposed to reveal colors about the characters, they aren't portrayed as anything more than a brick wall. Very little change in characters, despite being the average length of a movie it feels very slow.
this was a real treat, im glad i watched it
terribly tragic, beautifully made, excellent acting
Rough to watch if you have kids, but very well made.
