A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night

GirlWalksHomeFINAL Play Button

In the Iranian ghost-town Bad City, a place that reeks of death and loneliness from the prostitutes, junkies, gangsters, and other bizarre souls who call it home, a lonesome vampire lurks the streets preying on the town’s most hopeless inhabitants. But when she meets another outsider in the night, romance ensues through the unusual connection between the two tortured souls. Billed as cinema’s first Iranian Vampire Western, Ana Lily Amirpour’s debut feature mashes genre and culture in a dreary black and white Iranian modernity that reads visually like a French New Wave-inspired graphic novel, but haunts like a classic horror.
