Check out our review A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night - it's not what you think!
The vampire film has undergone something of an overhaul in the 21st Century. Tired of Hammer Horror cliché, a new breed of writers and filmmakers have given the genre a new lick of paint in order to lift it out of its creative stasis. Whilst commercial spoils have frequently followed this renaissance, critical plaudits have been harder to come by (Twilight, anyone?).
Presented in monochrome, this effortlessly cool, atmospheric and substantial Iranian film is something to behold. Fondly reminiscent of, and heavily indebted to, the work of Jim Jarmusch, alongside such fare as Let The Right One In (2008) and even, oddly, Satrapi's Persepolis (2007), this is a film bursting with imagination, foreboding and equipped with a killer soundtrack.
