A Touch of Fear - شيء من الخوف


Based on the novel A Touch of Fear by author Tharwat Abaza, this film explores the story of a cruel man named Atris (played by Mahmoud Morsi), who rules the lives of his villagers through terror and violence. The only person he loves is the beautiful Fu'ada (iconic actress-performer Shadia), however she rejects him for his cruelty. She mobilizes the other villagers against him, teaching a lesson about the value of standing up against tyranny.

The dramatic red backdrop of this poster signifies the colors of fire and blood, two elements of struggle that form the core of the story. Shadia appears in the foreground, stoic and noble in the face of cruelty, a beacon for the other villagers to admire. Morsi appears next to her, seeming shaken at his inability to control the one thing he loves most. Yahia Shahin also appears here as Sheikh Ibrahim, a voice of wisdom in the village. This is an ideal poster for Shadia fans, and the coloration is striking and very decorative.
