Watch Now on Netflix: A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night
I have been DYING to see A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night, billed as the "first Iranian vampire Western ever made", and it was one of my most-anticipated horror films of 2015, so I was basically counting the days until it showed up on Netflix streaming! And it finally premiered a few days ago so I rushed home from work to see it...
Here is the synopsis:
In the Iranian ghost-town Bad City, a place that reeks of death and loneliness, the townspeople are unaware they are being stalked by a lonesome vampire.
This black and white film is the feature debut from writer/director Ana Lily Amirpour, and I am always stoked to see a female-helmed film, especially one as unique as this one! The film isn't your typical horror movie, in fact I'm not sure I would even call it horror. It's not for everyone, but I found it stylish and engaging, blending elements from pulp cinema, Westerns, film noir, romance, and horror. It has a languid, moody tone, some killer music, gorgeous visuals, and a misfit love (?) story.
I recommend A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night if you are in the mood for a one-of-a-kind film. You can watch it streaming now on Netflix, and you can also purchase it on Amazon!

Thanks for sharing! I saw a preview for this a while ago, and I completely forgot about it until now. Also, I'd really like to see Only Lovers Left Alive.ReplyDelete
You MUST see both! They are very similar in tone and are both so lovely. I don't think Only Lovers Left Alive is streaming, but it is definitely worth a rental and even a purchase!Delete
I need to see this one too.ReplyDelete
