One of the better independent horror films I saw this year was A Girl Walks Alone Home At Night, which has been rotating on the festival circuit. A new international trailer made its debut this week, offering a new look at the film. You can now watch it here while we wait for distributor Kino Lorber to give us a release date.
The film, directed by Ana Lily Amirpour, is described as a love story set in a fictitious Iranian ghost town reeking of death and loneliness, where a strange and jaded population is haunted by a lonesome vampire who preys upon the city’s most depraved denizens.
Shot in widescreen black and white and entirely in Farsi, everything from the characters, the look, a modern soundtrack of ’60s inspired Western guitar music and Iranian pop make the film a mythical mash-up of genre and culture.
