At the beginning of the film, a character says he worked "2,191 days" in order to earn the money to buy his car. That is in actual fact, exactly 6 years (with one leap year factored into the equation). See more »
Although the movie is set in the Iranian ghost-town Bad City two locomotives from the California area are seen at the power plant after The Girl gets her ears pierced. Two engines, one marked CEFX 3048 and one marked Railink RLK 2121 are seen pulling some GATX corporation cars. CEFX 3048's and RLK 2121's normal area of operations would be in California. See more »
I am a horror fan since the days of black and white creature features. I have always loved a good, offbeat vampire movie such as the original Let The Right One In. I rate A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night just below that movie -- but still an outstanding horror movie -- in a genre in which excellence is so rare.
The actors are great. You hate the pimp / drug dealer; you like the young man; you sympathize with and simultaneously hate the pathetic, old, drug-addicted pervert. The vampire - you love her. She is an exotic beauty underneath a black cloak. I'm guessing the director chose this actress for her eyes -- beautiful and hypnotic.
The setting - Bad Town - is the type of bleak, lawless industrial town where a vampire could prey for a long time before moving on.
I would have enjoyed this movie in color, but black and white is fitting for its dark atmosphere. Highly recommended.
