Zar Amir Ebrahimi is the one who narrates this riveting true crime story.
Holy Spider Holy Spider Trailer Explores the True Story, the captivating and compelling story behind one of Iran’s most notorious murderers, Saeed Hanaei, while also serving as an unflinching exploration of a society in which rough justice can become a harsh way of life.
The film is based on the brutal true story of Saeed Hanaei, a serial killer who murdered 16 women prior to his capture in 2001. Holy Spider was released in 2017. According to reviews, the film is ultimately not for those with a weak stomach, despite the fact that it debuted at the Cannes Film Festival this year, which was lauded for its audacious and unwavering approach. However, it will likely find an audience in those individuals who find themselves compelled by such vile and prolific personalities.
Audiences can’t help but be drawn to hear about such dark and unpleasant people, as was recently witnessed with the interest around Netflix’s new streaming series, DAHMER – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story, and Hanaei’s ruthless criminality is no exception to this rule. Now, as the first trailer for the film reveals, the story of a journalist who will risk everything to find the truth and justice will prove to be a darkly rich and meditative investigation into what it takes to uncover a lawless man in a city full of great terrors. This investigation will take place in the context of the story of a journalist who will risk everything to find the truth and justice.
Zar Amir Ebrahimi plays Rahimi, a journalist who travels to the holy city of Mashhad in order to investigate a man known as the “Spider Killer” (played by Mehdi Bajestani). The “Spider Killer” is a serial killer who believes he is doing the work of God by “cleansing” the streets and murdering sex workers. This trailer showcases Rahimi’s investigation into the “Spider Killer.”
As Rahimi delves farther and further into the seedy underbelly of Mashhad, she encounters more and more horrifying situations. When influential individuals feel that this individual is not a criminal but rather a hero to the public, it becomes much more difficult to bring the Spider Killer to justice. Meanwhile, the number of people who have been murdered continues to rise. Therefore, in order for this journalist to triumph and seek forgiveness for the horrible killings of God-fearing people, he or she will have to contend with a lot of sinister powers.
Holy Spider has been the subject of a lot of praise and is even being considered for prizes, despite the fact that it has understandably been the cause of some early controversy. It should be noted that Ebrahimi was awarded the medal for Best Actress at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, while writer-director Ali Abbasi was honored with the award for Best Director at this year’s Fantastic Fest. In addition, it was recently disclosed that the movie will serve as Denmark’s official entry for the 95th Academy Awards in the category of Best International Feature.
Despite the fact that the director of the movie told Indiewire that he was “very terrified of the ramifications” associated with this film, particularly as it pertained to Bajestani’s representation of the iconic murder, the movie has already been hailed as a big success and is being welcomed as such. Holy Spider continues Abbasi’s recent trend of critical approval, which began with his previous picture, Border, which was met with acclaim and praise from audiences and critics alike.
Even though Holy Spider does not yet have an official release date, we may anticipate that the film will be made available to the public within the next few months, especially when its potential for award recognition is taken into account.
