Shudder’s Horror Fantasy ‘Tigers Are Not Afraid’ Coming to Blu-Ray

RLJE Films is bringing Shudder’s Tigers Are Not Afraid from writer/director Issa López to Blu-Ray & DVD in an exclusive steelbook on May 5, 2020. The film held a screening at the 2019 Toronto International Film Festival moderated by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Guillermo del Toro.

Synopsis: Tigers Are Not Afraid is a haunting horror fairytale set against the backdrop of Mexico’s devastating drug wars; Tigers Are Not Afraid follows a group of orphaned children who are unexpectedly given three magical wishes. As they run from the cartel that murdered their parents and the ghosts that haunt them, they must decide how to use this special gift to save their own lives and the people they love. Acclaimed by critics and filmmakers alike, Guillermo del Toro has called Tigers Are Not Afraid, “an unsparing blend of fantasy and brutality, innocence and evil.”
