Ever since I watched the original black and white series of Dark Shadows via Netflix, with Jonathan Frid as Barnabas Collins, I've had a 'thing' for vampires. That said, this has been (and still is) on my MUST SEE list. Ever since I met Reza Sixo Safai, one of the Executive Producers for A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night, I've been craving not only another conversation with him to follow our compelling first exchange, but also to see this 'moody and gorgeous' film, as described by The Hollywood Reporter. If you see it before me, be sure that you do NOT tell me how it ends. I want to find out for myself.
"The first Iranian Vampire Western ever made, Ana Lily Amirpour’s debut 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." -VICE
