Female journalist Rahimi (Zar Amir Ebrahimi) travels to the Iranian holy city of Mashhad to investigate a serial killer who believes he is doing the work of God, cleansing the streets of sinners by murdering sex workers.
As the body count mounts, and Rahimi draws closer to exposing his crimes, the opportunity for justice grows harder to attain as the Spider Killer is embraced by many as a hero.
Based on the horrific true story of serial killer Saeed Hanaei, acclaimed writer-director Ali Abbasi (Border) unveils a gripping crime thriller, and a daring indictment of a society in which rough justice is routinely a fact of life. In Iranian languages with English subtitles. Director Ali Abbasi (Denmark 2022) 117 min.
