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.

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.
