I'm not sure what it is about filmmakers from overseas, but they seem to really understand how to create a tense atmosphere and tone for scary films. This trailer is no exception. It's eerie yet fascinating.

Here's the synopsis:
Strange things are afoot in Bad City. The Iranian ghost town, home to prostitutes, junkies, pimps and other sordid souls, is a bastion of depravity and hopelessness where a lonely vampire stalks its most unsavory inhabitants. Cinema's first Iranian vampire western, Ana Lily Amirpour's debut 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.
Check the trailer after the break!

I'm totally intrigued. The black and white element adds a great eerie and tense aspect to the film. Rumblings from Sundance have been great, so this will definitely be one to check out when it makes it to theatres.

A GIRL WALKS HOME ALONE AT NIGHT will be released November 21st, is directed by Ana Lily Amirpour, and stars Sheila Vand, Arash Marandi, Dominic Rians, Marshall Manesh, Mozhan Marno, and Milad Eghbali.
