SummaryThis week on Vampire Planet, watch Ana Lily Amirpour’s stylish Iranian vampire western “A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night."
DescriptionVampire Planet: A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night.

October 10, 6 p.m. Persian with English Subtitles. Brief nudity.

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 towns most unsavory inhabitants. But when boy meets girl, an unusual love story begins to blossom...blood red.

The first Iranian Vampire Western, Ana Lily Amirpour's debut feature A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night basks in the sheer pleasure of pulp. A joyful mash-up of genre, archetype and iconography, its prolific influences span spaghetti westerns, graphic novels, horror films, and the Iranian New Wave. Amped by a mix of Iranian rock, techno and Morricone-inspired riffs, its airy, anamorphic, black-and-white aesthetic and artfully drawn-out scenes combine the simmering tension of Sergio Leone with the surrealism of David Lynch.

This screening is a part of Vampire Planet, a series of vampire films from around the world and across a century. Stylish and sexy, haunting, thought provoking, terrifying and hilarious: these are the Stories of the Night.
