FDL Movie Night Preview: In the Shadow

In the Shadow is a taut tale of psychological and supernatural horror set against a beautiful island backdrop.

It’s not summer without a vacation or a horror movie–and In the Shadow, directed and co-written and co-produced by Monday’s guest Nicole Elmer, brings us a taut tale of psychological and supernatural horror set against a beautiful island backdrop. Add in the additional layer of sex tourism, Puerto Rican politics, and colonial imperative, plus the bonus of that rara avis, a female horror director–and well, In the Shadow is a perfect summer FDL movie.

Exhausted from the demands of his gift as a healer, Diego lives in isolation in Puerto Rico. However, his life is disrupted when Hilary, a filmmaker, arrives. Intrigued by Diego’s mystery, she tries to get closer. As the two become attracted to each other, Hilary discovers Diego’s “gift” comes with a violent curse that changes their lives.

You can watch the trailer here.
