Director Ana Lily Amirpour takes on entirely different kind of vampire tale in her directorial debut, A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night.
The movie from Vice Films and Kino Lorber centers on Bad City, a sordid Iranian ghost town where one lonely vampire who “stalks its most unsavory inhabitants,” according to the movie’s website. Departing from the typical teenage vampire movies, the film features a fusion of horror, pulp, graphic novel, and Lynchian surrealism, touting itself as “the first Iranian vampire Western ever made.” Amirpour already released a comic series of the same name in anticipation of the film, which explores the backstory of the titular Girl. Watch the recently released trailer, which gives a taste of what all these genres and subgenres look like mashed up into one haunting preview.
A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night will be released in Los Angeles and New York on Nov. 21.
