[Sundance 2014] First Teaser: Iranian Vampire Western, “A GIRL WALKS HOME ALONE AT NIGHT”Movies/TV,News Samuel Zimmerman
What does an Iranian Vampire Western look like? Black-and-white, for one. Beyond its stark, very brief teaser though, we’re excited to find out.
The feature debut of Ana Lily Amirpour, A GIRL WALKS HOME ALONE AT NIGHT is set in Iranian ghost town, Bad City, home to prostitutes, junkies, pimps and other sordid souls. It’s 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.”
With an entry in the Sundance Guide that boasts of skating vampires and a host of pulpy influences including Morricone sounds and Lynchian atmosphere, we’re hoping A GIRL WALKS HOME ALONE AT NIGHT offers singular, strange delights in Park City. The film world premieres on January 19, and you can expect much more on it here at Fango.
For now, enjoy the Indiewire-exclusive teaser below.
