A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night (2014)

US 99m, B&W
Director: Ana Lily Amirpour; Cast: Sheila Vand, Arash Marandi, Marshall Manesh, Dominic Rains

a-girl-walksA Girl Walks Home Alone at Night is an unusual romantic horror film about an Iranian vampire with a conscience. It is also almost certainly a social commentary on the treatment of women in traditional Iranian society. At its center is a young veiled vampire who is depicted as a lonely and isolated creature who chooses male victims on the basis of their treatment of women. With the cinematographic style of a graphic novel, this is a beautifully filmed and hauntingly scored film that creates a dream-like atmosphere that is more artistic than it is frightening (Klaus Ming March 2015).
