FDL Movie Night: In the Shadow

By: Monday June 9, 2014 4:59 pm

It’s not summer without a vacation or a horror movie–and In the Shadow, directed, co-written and co-produced by tonight’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.

This is not a traditional horror movie in the slasher/gore vein. It is deeper, more supernatural and psychological in nature, raising questions about the price we pay for the things we love the most. It is also shot in lush, vibrant, saturated colors contrasting the island’s beauty with the story’s dark subject matter.
