Synopsis


The Fanatic
In this slice-n-dicer, a cabbie becomes obsessed with a lovely movie scream queen and decides to follow her to the Cannes Film Festival. Though she is a cult favorite, few take the horror-movie actress seriously. The taxi driver does and is sure that with a little of his expert direction she could become an excellent dramatic actress. Unfortunately, before he can help her, he must first get her attention. He first approaches her while she is taking a shower in her suite. Naturally she attempts to throw him out. A scuffle ensues and he ends up threatening to slit her throat. She escapes and dressed only in a towel runs through a crowd. The taxi driver is right behind her and the other festival-goers, thinking it all a clever promotional gimmick, applaud. He stops to take a bow and she makes it to safety. This bad start does not stop the cabbie from trying to reach her and before the story ends, many people die horrible deaths, leading to the film's surprising ending. Much of the story was shot on location at the 1981 Cannes Film Festival and features shots of several famous actors and filmmakers. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

    "You've Made Your Last Horror Film!"

    If you're into cult horror films, give this one a try! An early Troma movie about an obsessed wannabe filmmaker, Vinny, who follows horror actress Jana Bates all the way to the Cannes Film Festival to try to get her to star in his movie. All while this is happening, people from Jana's crew start disappearing and turning up dead! Is Vinny to blame? Is it all for the sake of art? The movie is an 80s slasher, but an interesting one; it it has its moments that makes it fun to watch. The movie gets you into the deranged Vinny's head, taking things a step further than your typical horror movie. Also, if you're into the film industry, you'll love the old school reel shots and the film festival environment. On the plus, if you liked Joe Spinell and Caroline Munro in "Maniac", then definitely give "The Last Horror Film" a watch! The blu ray doesn't have much special features directly towards the film other than a funny intro by Lloyd Kaufman and the trailer, so don't expect much from that. Just has some Troma related features. The picture itself shows some scratches and stuff occasionally, but hey, it's a low budget horror film, so I don't mind at all. Overall, it's a decent, underrated horror film. Give it a watch if you dig slashers and want to go beyond the usual slasher scope.
