Synopsis

In the shadows of Bad City–a lawless hellhole, inhabited by underworld figures, drug addicts and pimps–a lonesome vampire wanders around. Dressed in a hijab and a striped t-shirt, she follows local villagers. One night she meets Arash, an Iranian James Dean lookalike. There is an instant attraction.

Our take

Let this intriguing title lure you into the mysterious world of this modern, feminist take on the vampire horror film set in Iran. Shot in crisp B&W cinematography, this is an invigorating reappropriation of a genre usually known for undermining women as the ultimate victims. No more, time’s up!
