On May 19th of this year, Troma will release the 1982 lost (until now!) slasher gem The Last Horror Film for the first time in America totally unrated and with a host of Troma approved special features! This film has not been seen in its unrated form for over 25 years and has NEVER been released on DVD in that form! Here's all the information about this must see release that Movie Gazette said "cuts deeper than the average slasher film"!
Troma Team Video is proud to present for the time uncut in America, one of Joe Spinell's (Rocky, The Godfather) most riveting, unnerving performances, since his unforgettable starring role in Maniac, in this underrated gem of the 1980s -- The Last Horror Film. Vinny Durand (Spinell), a lonesome New York cab driver who lives at home with his mother, has dreams of becoming a famous film director. Consumed by his depraved obsession with beautiful horror actress Jenna Bates (Bond-Girl Caroline Munro) and determined to have her star in his first film, Vinny trails her to the Cannes Film Festival. While Vinny's disturbing fascination grows, a mysterious killer begins slaughtering all people in Jenna's entourage. Is the obsessed fanatic and the psychotic killer one in the same? Will this be Jenna's Last Horror Film?
