A love story between two tortured souls In the Iranian Ghost town called BAD CITY… a place that reeks of death and loneliness where a lonesome vampire is preying on the towns most depraved denizens.
導演的話 / Director’s Statement
我創造了自己的世界,自己立規矩。所有的角色的靈感,都是發想自五零至九零年代我喜愛的流行文化代表人物,例如詹姆士狄恩、蘇菲亞羅蘭、南非饒舌團體回答樂團(Die Antwoord)的主唱 Ninja,當然還有各式各樣的吸血鬼。我希望他們的造型和氣質是永遠都不會過時的,同時也富含這個故事的神祕與超現實色彩,所以我採用黑白的變形鏡頭拍攝,讓片子看起來像圖像小說,給觀眾一個跨類型的感官體驗。
It’s like Sergio Leone and David Lynch had an Iranian rock ‘n’ roll baby, and then Nosferatu came and babysat for them. It’s shot in black and white; it has a crazy awesome soundtrack and an incredible cast. I wanted to make an Iranian film, but the question was how? Since I obviously can’t shoot in Iran, the solution became the invention of the entire film; I found a desolate, vacant oil-town in the desert of California which became the ficticious Iranian ghost-town Bad City, and suddenly there were no rules. I created my own universe, and made the rules.
And the cast of characters are inspired by pop icons I love from the 50’s all the way through the 90’s, like James Dean, Sophia Loren, Ninja from Die Antwoord, and of course, the limitless possibilities of a Vampire.I wanted the look and feel to be timeless, and truly complete the mythical and surreal feeling of the story, so that’s why I shot in black and white anamorphic; it gave us this graphic look, and the film suddenly became a truly genre-blending experience.
It’s impossible to talk about making this film without talking about the music. Music has been a big part of my life; I was singer and bass player of a rock band for many years, and now love DJ’ing, so it’s natural that music is also a vital part of this film. The soundtrack was very much a part of the design of the film, at the script level. Each song you hear was picked in advance, and the power of music is so massive that it leads the way in the filmmaking. It’s the magic that transports a moment into another dimension.
