This is a movie that’s made for the artistic horror-fanatic: A simple yet depressing vampire thrill-tale that spotlights concentrated directing, epic monochrome cinematography, and a delectably sundry soundtrack. But, to me, these proficiencies are about the extent of A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night’s erudition. Would I consider this to be a good or bad thing, though? It really depends on the viewer’s specific taste, quite frankly. But, as I hinted at before, it still functions capably as the narratively conventional—besides the contemplative ending—yet visually well-assembled romantic vampire story that deviously soars into cinemas from time to time.
You could also call it Twilight but for “premium members.” And, with that logic, we can call Let the Right One In the A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night for “premium members.” This is the definitive vampire movie pyramid, indeed.
“A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night” is now available to stream on Vudu, YouTube, Google Play, Amazon Prime, and iTunes.
