Hands down the best Iranian dystopian one-take sci-fi thriller you will see this year

In this stylish and atmospheric sci-fi-thriller we follow the investigation of a murder which has taken place in a strange sports arena. In order to prove that their suspect is guilty, the police need to reconstruct the events, but little do they know that the killer plans to use the reconstruction to perform another murder – this time on a woman who is said to be a vampire. Part labyrinthine detective story and part playful upending of audience expectations, INVASION manages to both entertain and channel the frustration of young Iranians.
