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.

I had read so many glowing reviews of this movie I had to check it out. Oh boy. I got about 30 minutes in and could not go any further. I am Hispanic and was intrigued by the magical realism spin to the movie but it was SO boring I was just not invested enough to get to it. This is a drama about poverty, tragedy, and loss. It was competently shot and the kids were pretty good actors, but it did not grab me at all.
Did not like. Didn't even finish it. It's sad movie and that's it
I’m going 4 stars as a movie. As a horror movie it would be 1 star as it’s not a horror movie at all. Worth a watch for sure but not if you’re looking for horror.
