In the timeless Iranian ghost-town of Bad City, abuse against women runs rampant, cloaked by the dark of night. The abuse, however, is met with sharp punishment from a vengeful female vampire (Sheila Vand) who preys on the men that disrespect women. The spellbinding setting and characters establish a dark arthouse ambiance while simultaneously addressing the status of women in society.

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.


Preceded by Suicide by Sunlight.

Valentina, a day-walking Black vampire protected from the sun by her melanin, is forced to restrain her bloodlust to regain custody of her estranged daughters.

Directed by Nikyatu Jusu.
