Tigers Are Not Afraid

Directed by
Issa López

Shudder and Variant Films present this Spanish-language festival sensation in a Knoxville exclusive theatrical engagement.

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.

“This is one terrific film.” – Stephen King

“A fairytale for today. Beautiful, shocking, and chilling.” – Neil Gaiman
