TIGERS ARE NOT AFRAID is a haunting horror fairytale set against the backdrop of Mexico’s devastating drug wars; TIGERS ARE NOT AFRAID follows a group of orphaned children who are unexpectedly given three magical wishes. As they run from the cartel that murdered their parents and the ghosts that haunt them, they must decide how to use this special gift to save their own lives and the people they love. Acclaimed by critics and filmmakers alike, Guillermo del Toro has called TIGERS ARE NOT AFRAID, “an unsparing blend of fantasy and brutality, innocence and evil.”
These releases contain extensive bonus features including a 43-minute behind-the-scenes look at the making of the film with director Issa López, a director’s commentary, never-before-seen casting sessions and deleted scenes, as well as multiple photo galleries. The DVD/Blu-ray SteelBook has an additional bonus feature of a 63-minute interview with Issa López and Academy Award-winning filmmaker Guillermo del Toro following the 2019 Toronto International Film Festival screening of the film.
