The film is monotone, and its silence is surreal with terror. The subject of a vampire is deadly. It is vicious with lighting that is engrossing. A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night is a horror experience that is unique and chilling. Its structure is blending vampire horror with a western feeling. Its black and white cinematography is where the terror lures beyond many forms of direction in terms of horror. The crazy part about A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night is that it is focused on one vampire. That individual vampire haunts the screen with unexplained tensions and dangers which are invigorating.
A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night is proper in its pacing. The film keeps its audience on edge. The film contains minimal dialogue. That factor is one that keeps the flow of being scary surreal. As I had my experience with A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night, I knew there was darkness that was only going to become more treacherous. A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night develops its characteristics of its individual vampire. Its development has chills and jump scares in the many unexpected fragments throughout the film.
In A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night the film takes place in a small town of Iran. One that is described as an Iranian ghost-town. A town with a generous amount of poverty, depression, and many individuals who are in a bad place. The solitude and sad life for many though gets a lot more harrowing. That is because the city has a lurking vampire. The Vampire is played by Sheila Vand. The targeted man is Arash (played by Arash Mandi). Arash is a young teen that struggles at home. He has a father that is a drug addict Arash suffers all kinds of emotions due to his troubles at home. When he meets the girl vampire, both feel there is a sense of light and happiness. The issue though, is that the vampire may not be able to prevent herself from biting. With her tendencies of craving people who deserve to suffer for bad behavior, Arash may or may not be a target of hers.
What I love about the film is all its form of noir. Noir blended with vampires is a catchy vibe and direction. It also drives the chances of fatalities from the Girl vampire. A Girl Who Walks Home Alone at Night grows its darkness as the lighting keeps its negative colors in many of its moments. It is unpredictable and exhilarating.
The moment that spoke to me the most was also the most terrifying I have seen in a vampire flick. When the vampire starts a conversation a boy that is creepy, and she asks him, “Are you a good boy?” My heart started pounding. That is because from there, I realized the vampire’s sweet tooth for flesh are bad people. A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night lays out its foundation of who is to suffer from vampire deaths.
At the Music Box Theatre, this was one of the most exhilarating experiences I have had. It also had me festive wanting more scares. The Girl Who Walks Home Alone at Night will enthrall its audience with powerful evil. If there are fans of scary movies, this one is one that is essential. That is because it does vampirism right. Three and a half stars for The Girl Who Walks Home Alone at Night.
