So Ji Sub lends support to the first Iranian vampire western
Hot actor So Ji Sub apparently is a suave businessman with a selective taste in movies. He has purchased the rights to distribute a very unusual movie in Korea, A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night, touted as "The first Iranian vampire western." Find out why the The Master's Sun actor likes this movie and see the trailer.
A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night was filmed in Southern California in the town of Taft, which substituted for a desolate Iranian town, Bad City, where the townspeople are unaware that they are stalked at night by a lonesome vampire. Audience members can expect a fusion of vampire, western, and even romantic elements.
Ana Lily Amirpour, an Iranian-American film director, screenwriter, producer, and actor. directed the movie based on her graphic novel with the same title. The movie with a moody atmosphere has won positive reviews from critics. Guy Lodge of Variety said in his review that "Ana Lily Amirpour's auspicious debut feature is a sly, slinky vampire romance set in an imaginary Iranian underworld."
Here is the English-subbed trailer. (Caution: scary)
So Ji Sub explained during a recent interview that he wants to introduce to the moviegoers the movies that touch his heart with outstanding and memorable characters. Will you be interested in this film?
In the meantime, you can "stalk" the handsome and charismatic So Ji Sub himself in cameos that paid homage to his hit drama The Master's Sun in the beautiful Jeju Island Gatsby (aka Warm and Cozy) drama, where there are no vampires but lots of romantic comedy.
