Movie Info

The first Iranian Vampire Western ever made, Ana Lily Amirpour's debut 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. (C) Kino

Combing horror, film noir and westerns, Ana Lily Amirpour's debut feature, A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night, is a refreshing take on vampire lore.

It's a haunting story of love between two misfits who shouldn't be together.

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.

For all the visual ambition, this doesn't add up to anything terribly substantial.

Audience Reviews for A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night

Artsy fartsy at its "best", nicely filmed and with some interesting choices of music, but with no plot to speak of and several scenes that just keep dragging on. Yawn.

Brilliant. I loved everything about it. So beautifully filmed.

The kind of failed artsy horror pulp Western in which even the stunning moments help make it feel all the more pretentious, silly and empty, and there is nothing more ridiculous than an Iranian feminist vampire wearing a chador - is that supposed to be ironic or just stupid?
