Iranian horror fans got lucky this month, as Mohammad-Hossein Latifi's new horror movie "Girl's Dormitory" hit screens. The film follows a group of college kids who are forced to move into a house that the local people believe to be haunted. You can guess where plot goes from there.
The history of horror films being made in Iran goes back to the 1950's when the late directory Samuel Khachikian cranked out titles like "A Party in Hell" (1956), "The Midnight Terror" (1961) and "Delirium" (1965). Over the years since, the horror genre in Iran has had its up and downs. One thing has remained constant, though, many Iranian movie fans welcome the chance to see domestically produced fright films.
