Widely regarded as the most influential vampire film since Let the Right One InA GIRL WALKS HOME ALONE AT NIGHT is an intoxicating mix of mesmerising attraction and bloodthirsty violence. Channelling Sergio Leone and David Lynch, it premiered at Sundance 2014 to much acclaim, was lauded at the London Film Festival, and picked up a nomination at the 2015 Glasgow Film Festival.

Strange things are afoot in Bad City. The Iranian ghost town – home to prostitutes, junkies, pimps and other sordid souls – is a place that reeks of death and hopelessness, where a lonely vampire is stalking the town’s most unsavoury inhabitants. But when girl meets boy (and cat), an unusual love story begins to blossom.

Iranian-American film director Ana Lily Amirpour weaves an innovative and enthralling tale teeming with originality and beauty for her killer feature debut. With a film-noir feel and stylish aesthetic, A GIRL WALKS HOME ALONE AT NIGHT is blessed with powerful performances by Shelia Vand (Argo, The Highway is for Gamblers, Funhouse) as ‘The Girl’, Arash Marandi as hipster Arash, and Mozhan Marnò (The Blacklist, House of Cards) as the prostitute Atti.

A GIRL WALKS HOME ALONE AT NIGHT basks in the sheer pleasure of pulp. Amped by an eclectic and hypnotising soundtrack featuring a cool mix of Iranian rock, techno and Morricone-inspired riffs, this indie cult break-out is one of the most talked about films of the year.

Nick Lowe reviews it at length in Interzone #259 (July–August): ″ … every single thing about this wonderful film feels like a dream … The story is built pretty much entirely from Tarantino scenes, those drawn-out moments of spaghetti-western tension where the audience know that one of three things is going to happen, but never which: something dreadful, something entirely unexpected, or (often most thrillingly) nothing at all … ″

The film is available on digital HD from 20th July, and released on Blu-ray/DVD on 27th July. Extras include a behind-the-scenes documentary and an interview with Ana Lily Amirpour and Sheila Vand.
