A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night
An Iranian Vampire Western...
In a ghost-town called BAD CITY, a place that reeks of death and loneliness, the depraved townspeople are unaware they are being stalked by a lonesome vampire.
The first Iranian Vampire Western ever made, Ana Lily Amirpour's debut basks in the sheer pleasure of pulp. A joyful mash-up of genre, archetype, and iconography, its prolific influences span spaghetti westerns, graphic novels, horror films, and the Iranian New Wave. Amped by a mix of Iranian rock, techno, and Morricone-inspired riffs, the film's airy, anamorphic, black-and-white aesthetic combines the simmering tension of Sergio Leone with the weird surrealism of David Lynch.
