Directed by Emirati filmmaking pioneer Ali Mostafa and produced by horror film veterans Peter Safran (The Conjuring) and Steven Schneider (Paranormal Activity), The Worthy was released in cinemas across the region on February 23rd, 2017.

This is Mostafa’s third feature film, following his Dubai-based drama City of Life (2009) and road-trip comedy From A to B (2014).
