The mysterious and dark vampire tale from Vice Films A GIRL WALKS HOME ALONE AT NIGHT has unleashed upon us its haunting trailer. Ana Lily Amirpour’s award winning Indie hit will be released courtesy of Kino Lorber this upcoming November. Take a look at the remarkable trailer as we see a young woman walking among the filth of the streets and feeding on the less than fortunate.
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.
Cinema’s 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 combine the simmering tension of Sergio Leone with the weird surrealism of David Lynch.
A GIRL WALKS HOME ALONE AT NIGHT is directed by Ana Lily Amirpour and stars Sheila Vand, Arash Marandi, Dominic Rians, Marshall Manesh, Mozhan Marno, and Milad Eghbali.
Kino Lorber will release “A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night” in New York and Los Angeles on November 21st, with national expansion to follow.
