Last Horror Movie (2004) Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
Ok, I’m not going to giveaway the whole thing but it’s a pretty surprising flick. This starts off as a typical cheesy shot direct-to-video slasher stalker flick.
Just as the killer is about to cut her throat the screen fades and then some guy is talking to his camera and he tells you that he has erased the movie that you thought you wanted to watch, from there he takes you on a journey into his mind and life.
It starts a little slow but then he starts to kill, he has recorded all of his kills on video.
I found this approach very much like American Psycho, but here’s the rub, this was out 2 years before American Psycho so I have to think that the makers of that movie saw this first then just made it a bigger production. Essentially this movie is the same but it still offers a surprise at the end.
As far as being scary, not really, I haven’t been scared by a horror movie in years but this one left me feeling good afterwards and that’s a rarity in the horror field as of late.
Is this a bloody film? Not really. It’s Fred Vogel’s August Underground in a way but with less gore and more psychoanalysis. He makes some interesting points about life and how we live it that as a horror fan you just have to laugh at but it also will make you think.
If you want Jason and Freddy, don’t come here, but if you want an “intelligent” horror film, this is the one to pick. I haven’t had time to listen to the directors commentary yet, but it will be interesting to see what he has to say about the making of this film. I think this is one of the better movies that I’ve seen in a while.
Don’t expect blood and guts though, it has a more of a reality feel to it. This is Fred Vogel light with philosophy! Interesting and it will definitely stay in my collection.
