Last Updated on August 5, 2021

A GIRL WALKS HOME ALONE AT NIGHT is being billed as the "first Iranian Vampire Western" and it's recently coming off of its premiere at Sundance. It was certainly one of the more intriguing films at the festival this year and has so far been met a mixed bag of reviews. The Iranian vampire tale marks the feature debut of director Ana Lily Amirpour which is said to be a joyful mash-up of genre, archetype, and iconography, its prolific influences span spaghetti westerns, graphic novels, horror films, and the Iranian New Wave. Even though Sundance has already come and gone, it's never too late to appreciate some art for the flick! Dig on it below!

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.

The film stars Sheila Vand, Arash Marandi, Dominic Rains, Marshall Manesh, Mozhan Marnó and Milad Eghbali.
