A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night premiered at Sundance and got amazing reviews from the critics. It is also the world’s first Iranian vampire movie, just for the sake of experiencing history. Also, writer-director Ana Lily Amirpour’s debut is interesting enough to warrant a watch. It looks stylish and atmospheric and hella good fun, and the use of a chador as a vampire cloak is pretty boss. If you were into Let the Right One In, you are probably going to be down for this.
Strange things are afoot in Bad City. The Iranian ghost town, home to prostitutes, junkies, pimps and other sordid souls, is a bastion of depravity and hopelessness where a lonely vampire stalks its most unsavory inhabitants. But when boy meets girl, an unusual love story begins to blossom… blood red.
