Tigers Are Not Afraid (Vuelven)

A gang of children try to survive cartel violence and the ghosts created by the drug war in this award-winning dark fairy tale horror.

"We are in a Mexican city turned into a ghost town by the drug-war. Estrella is 11, and when her mother vanishes, she makes a wish: she wants her mother to come back. And mum does return — from the dead. Terrified, Estrella escapes and joins a rag-tag gang of other children orphaned by the violence, all escaping their own past. But she learns that in a city ruled by death, you can’t simply leave the ghosts behind; they walk with you wherever you go." (ScreamFest)

A scary yet sometimes fanciful story of a little girl...like a dirtied-up Guillermo del Toro flick.

[A] nervy and imaginative piece of filmmaking that, on a scene-by-scene basis, has trouble living up to its obvious ambition.

Thematically underdeveloped yet pleasingly creepy, "Tigers Are Not Afraid" balances its mild terrors with appealing moments of childish creativity.
