Home / Now Showing / HOLY SPIDER
In Ali Abbasi’s brutal exploration of violence rooted within society, Mehdi Bahjestani is Saeed – a simple family man who also is on a religious quest to cleanse Masshad of corrupt prostitutes. As his murderous rampage through the city escalates and the authorities almost seem reluctant to care too much, a young journalist by Rahimi decies to track down and identify the killer – however when the two cross paths, the very soul of a nation will be at stake as Saeed’s insane divinity will infect all those around him. An unmissable ride through the dark soul of humanity, HOLY SPIDER will astound, shock and mesmerize you. Unmissable.
