Directed by Ana Lily Amirpour

IN UK CINEMAS MAY 22

Strange things are afoot in Bad City. The Iranian ghost town, home to prostitutes, junkie, pimps and other sordid souls, is a place that reeks of death and hopelessness, where a lonely vampire is stalking the towns most unsavoury inhabitants. But when boy meets girl, an unusual love story begins to blossom…blood red.

GIRL22-p19kd4iae5ksnknro6p2gimj1The first Iranian Vampire Western, Ana Lily Amirpour’s début feature 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 weird surrealism of David Lynch.
