The Last Matinee Synopsis
A cold, wet day. A declining cinema. All you want is to get out of the rain and watch a good film. But who else is in there, hiding in the dark? When Ana takes over projection duties from her ailing father, she doesn’t expect anything worse than a broken reel or a burned-out bulb. But there’s a sadistic killer in the auditorium, and soon blood is running in the aisles as he starts picking off the audience members one by one. Can Ana and the few remaining survivors escape the murderous madman, or will they be victims of his matinee massacre?

From The ARROW Press Release
London, UK – Arrow Video is excited to announce the ARROW release of Maximiliano “Maxi” Contenti’s stylish neo-giallo love letter The Last Matinee, available exclusively to subscribers in the US, Canada, the UK, and Ireland. The Last Matinee made its US premiere at Panic Fest and screened at Sitges and the Cleveland International Film Festival.
With lavish retro visuals, inventive and unexpected kills, buckets of grisly gore, a throbbing synth-drenched score, and a superb setting in a fleapit cinema, this is a fright-film lover’s dream: a blend of 80s slasher with Argento giallo, replete with a black-hooded, eyeball-plucking killer and a final girl, Luciana Grasso, you’ll be cheering for. The Last Matinee ticks all the right boxes for devoted horror hounds: it’s Demons, Halloween, StageFright, Popcorn, Opera and Drive in Massacre all rolled into one superbly sinister reel and projected for your delight.
The film will debut on ARROW December 1.
Looks great! Can’t wait to check it out! What about you? Did you enjoy the trailer? Will you check out THE LAST MATINEE on ARROW in December?
