About the Movie
Strange things are afoot in Bad City. The Iranian ghost town, home to prostitutes, junkies, pimps, and other sordid souls, is a place that reeks of death and hopelessness, where a lonely vampire is stalking the towns' most unsavory inhabitants. But when boy meets girl, an unusual love story begins to blossom...blood red.The first Iranian Vampire Western, Ana Lily Amirpour's debut feature 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, its airy, anamorphic, black-and-white aesthetic and artfully drawn out scenes combined with simmering tension to make the first Iranian Vampire Western.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: "A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night" is a wildly inventive Iranian vampire movie that grabs you by the throat with its dark, moody style, pulsating soundtrack and offbeat love story.
Fresh: It's a haunting story of love between two misfits who shouldn't be together.
Fresh: There's not much story to speak of, but the semi-Iranian hipster feminist vampire romance A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night is gorgeous to behold and up to its jugular vein in quirky/spooky atmosphere.
Fresh: Cool, supremely confident ...
I’ve watched a LOT of persian films and they seem to be either really wonderful or totally horrible/bizarre. This one broke the mold by being wonderful AND bizarre. Everything about this film is amazing. It’s got this old school horror flick vibe and a arthaus film noir vibe…and a classic love story-ish undertones. Words don’t do it justice. Just watch it! The soundtrack is great too…wish I could find somewhere to buy it.
Best of the year
This is the best movie I saw made in 2014. Quietly suspenseful. Intensely cool. Rock star filmmaking at its best.
One of the best films I have seen
This is a great film and what films should be about. Pacing, scenes are just very well done, even when a bit slow. Very well shot, excellent soundtrack. And it creates dread & fear without having to resort to a multi million dollar budget. Creative scenes and composition. Very well done.
