Day 6: A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night
Writer: Ana Lily Amirpour
Director: Ana Lily Amirpour
Year released: 2014


I read that this is the first Iranian Vampire Western. How could I NOT watch this?


Overview: The people of the industrial, Iranian town of Bad City are being stalked by a skate-boarding female vampire.

  1. The movie wasn’t actually filmed in Iran. It was filmed in California, but it is in Farsi, with subtitles.
  2. This is said to be the first vampire movie set in a Middle Eastern setting.
  3. The word “vampire” is not said at any point in the film.
  4. The film is shot in black and white.
  5. The vampire, The Girl, an Audrey Hepburn-esq character, forms a bond with Arash, a James Dean-esq character.
