Vice Films have released a very cool first trailer for Iran’s vampire indie, “A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night”. The movie is directed by Ana Lily Amirpour, who has just received a Gotham Independent Film Awards nomination in the Breakthrough Director category.

Vice Films also released a synopsis which explains the film:
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.

Watch the trailer below:

“A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night” premiered at Sundance to strong reviews, and is out in limited cinemas from November 21.
