Writer and Director Ana Lily Amirpour's first directorial debut feature film, A Girl Walks Home at Night has arrived and it's an entirely different kind of vampire tale than you're normally used to. I first heard about it because it got so much buzz at this year's Sundance Film Festival and then again when it came to L.A. for Sundance's Next Fest. Sadly, I missed it while it was in L.A. but good thing, it is finally getting a theatrical release! The story is centered in Bad City, a ghost-town in Iran that reeks of death and loneliness. The townspeople are unaware they are being stalked by a lonesome vampire
Vice Films and Kino Lorber is bringing us A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night and by the trailer, you can already tell that it's moody, mysterious, and shrouded in some serious sinisterness. Also, we have a female vampire creeping in the dark corners of the night all while riding a skateboard. How awesome is that?! Amirpour has also decided to write a six-part spinoff comic which explores the girl's backstory with art from Michael DeWeese. The comics will be sold digitally through Comixology and then packaged as a graphic novel, both digitally and in print form. I'll be one of the many that'll be fiending for the book till it comes out! See the sneak peek of issue #1 & #2 here! A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night will be released in Los Angeles and New York on November 21st! I'll be there! Will you?
