Lame Attempt At Comedy-Horror

I didn't even get one smile out of this - a real eye roller of a film. All I could do is shake my head and roll my eyes at the screen - this is a very boring film.

One of those films that I had to hit the fast-forward button often... stop to watch a little then fast-forward again. I couldn't sit though this mess - just not my style of comedy-horror at all.

Don't base watching the film on just my review or others - one of those films you will just have to watch for yourself to see if you like it or not.

Smarter than you'd think

Before Wes Craven's New Nightmare and Scream made self-reflexivity cool in horror films, there was this unknown little gem that reunites Maniac stars Joe Spinnell and Caroline Munro to make an, at times, hilarious send up of both Hollywood and horror films.

At first glance, it might seem as if Spinnell is resuming his role from Maniac, but his Vinny is a far more sympathetic and likable guy. He has big dreams to quit his taxi driving job and make a film with his favorite leading lady, Jana Bates (Caroline Munro with a hideous skunk-like white streak in her hair). He scrambles the money together to go to the Cannes Film Festival and pretty much stalk Jana until he can be alone with her and persuade her to be in his film. Naturally, someone is killing off people in Jana's entourage and it might be Vinny.

Whereas Maniac was grim and sleazy, The Last Horror Film is pretty upbeat and silly. I really can't imagine someone not finding a lot of fun in this. Spinnell and Munro seem game for anything and some of the murder set pieces are fairly imaginative and fun. There's even a nifty twist at the end followed by one of the strangest final scenes in horror history.

Seeing all the famous celebrity cameos and movie marquees during the Cannes scenes is a treat as well. Horror fans should give this one a chance.

Spoilers follow ...

Disillusioned New York Taxi Driver Vinny Durand (Joe Spinell) is obsessed with cult film actress Jana Bates (Caroline Munro). He tells his mother, with whom he shares an apartment - actually Spinell's home), that he intends to go to the Cannes Film Festival, meet Bates and direct her in a film that will kick-start his career as an acclaimed film-maker. His mother (played by Spinell's real matriarch Mary – the star of the film, in my view) isn't convinced. In a warning uttered without punctuation, she says, "Stop thinking about those crazy ideas, you'll only get yourself upset again, I made baked macaroni, you don't eat right."

Caroline Munro seems to be re-dubbed throughout, with an American accent. Visually, she's as 1980s as it is possible to get, her natural beauty often smothered by make-up and hair colouring and styling. She features in my favourite scene – wrapped only in a towel, running hysterically, barefoot down the middle of a bustling night-time road. This includes what appears to be real news footage, charting the assignation attempt on then President Ronald Reagan (himself an ex-film star) in an attempt by an obsessed fan to impress actress Jodie Foster.

'The Last Horror Film' is by turns dreadful and very funny (especially the last scene). Every few minutes, we are treated to tracking shots of beaches, movie premieres and parties, incessantly accompanied by tuneless 80's 'songs, with hoarse-voiced singers, guitars and Linn Drums (which help to ensure the running time seems a lot longer than 90 minutes) – against this backdrop, Durrand comes across as a splendidly drab failure, who might even be responsible for a series of gory murders that seem to follow Bates around …

Filmed, without permits, at and around the Cannes Film Festival, this is somehow saved from being 'a bad film' by the genuine warmth and heart that belies the bad acting (although Spinell has moments where he is genuinely unnerving) and zero budget. It goes some way to explore whether or not horror films inspire real life horrific events. Bates' comeback is that people watch the news, which is more terrifying than any horror films she has ever seen. It's difficult to argue with that.
