Holy Spider: Sneak Peek

Holy Spider: Sneak Peek

Catch a sneak peek at Ali Abbasi's Holy Spider, a noir thriller based on a horrific true story.

The film follows female journalist Rahimi who travels to the Iranian holy city of Mashhad to investigate a serial killer who believes he is doing the work of God, cleansing the streets of sinners by murdering sex workers. As the body count mounts, and Rahimi draws closer to exposing his crimes, the opportunity for justice grows harder to attain as the 'Spider Killer' is embraced by many as a hero.

An entry in this year's Cannes Competition, Holy Spider is a chilling expose of violence and misogny that's all too timely.

“Holy Spider's rendition of this grisly tale is powerful and precise, commendably lacking the sensationalistic tone of some serial killer movies.” - Godfrey Cheshire,

“A very effective thriller.” - Marjorie Baumgarten, Austin Chronicle

“Notwithstanding its grim subject, Holy Spider mostly eschews true-crime orthodoxy thanks to Abbasi's moody, jittery direction and Amir-Ebrahimi's marvelous, finely tuned performance.” - Andrew Wyatt, The Lens
