    Tigers Are Not Afraid

    Coming to Shudder soon.

    "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."

    Since it's on Shudder, does that mean it's not going to have a physical release? I'd really like to own this on Blu-ray.
    Why would anybody watch a scum show like Videodrome? Why did you watch it, Max?

    I don't have an answer for that but the director is now collaborating with Guillermo Del Toro on a 'werewolf western.'

    Might seem terribly obvious, but this is very evocative of PAN'S LABYRINTH, which I enjoyed considerably. Looking forward to it when available elsewhere.
    VHS will never die!

    It’s playing in Saskatoon? Why not Moose Jaw? Or Regina, the city that rhymes with fun?

    Yeah, Saskatoon seemed pretty random - maybe Regina is one of the many more to come, ha.
