The next After Hours for Movies and Tea is here. This time we review something much more current which is now on Shudder, which is Tigers Are Not Afraid, a fantasy horror film that is often compared to Guillermo Del Toro’s The Devil’s Backbone and Pan’s Labyrinth as well as praised by Del Toro himself. Head over to listen to our discussion of Tigers Are Not Afraid and tell us if you’ve seen it. If you have, share you thoughts on it with us and if you haven’t, whether its on your watch list!
On this episode we discuss the directorial debut of Issa López which not only has seen her draw comparisons to the Guillermo del Toro but also his admiration aswell.
With her debut film she blends fairy tale fantasy against the harsh reality of the Mexican drug wars as a young girl called Estrella returns home to find her mother missing and persumed to have been kidnapped by the local drugs cartel currently terrorising the city. Now joining a group of orphaned street kids and empowered with the gift of three wishes she joins them on their quest for revenge.
