A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night (2014)

This movie was called "the first Iranian vampire western",  even though it was shot in Taft, California. It's all about a lonesome vampire in the Iranian ghost town known as Bad City.

Alfonso Gomez-Rejon directing the movie Me, Earl and the Dying Girl probably wouldn't make you think that he could knock it out of the park when it comes to horror.
