In his four-star Boston Underground Film Festival review of Tigers Are Not Afraid, Ben Larned called Issa López's film a "heartbreaking, harrowing sociological fantasy," and ahead of its theatrical release, the film's official trailer has been revealed.

Written and directed by Issa López, Tigers Are Not Afraid stars Paola Lara, Juan Ramón López, and Hanssel Casillas. Shudder will release the film theatrically in New York, Los Angeles, and Toronto on August 23rd, followed by a national release. Stay tuned to Daily Dead for more updates, and check out the official trailer and poster below.

Synopsis: "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"
