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.

Well done. Dark and bleak especially with the history noted. But well told story of inner strength.

An outstanding achievement, probably the best film on this streaming platform, a haunting tale with a strong vision and an amazing story and direction. Highly recommended, it is very dark and bleak and not uplifting, but still an incredibly rewarding, moving experience. Please watch it!

A superb dark fairytale/horror set against the backdrop of the Mexican drug war. Obviously it’s been compared to Pan’s Labyrinth and The Devil’s Backbone and it deserves its praise. I found it very moving with scenes that made me laugh and cry. Two scenes at the end (with the bracelet and “Adios”) particularly affecting. Great performances from the child cast, especially Juan Ramón López (El Shine) who was outstanding.
