In celebration of its 10th anniversary, Soda Pictures has announced the UK DVD re-release of Julian Richards cult hit THE LAST HORROR MOVIE with a street date of May 5th 2014. Meanwhile, US distributor MVD has also scheduled a commemorative release with a North American street date of August 26th 2014. This special collectors edition includes a directors commentary, behind the scenes footage, deleted scenes and this startling new cover art.
THE LAST HORROR MOVIE follows wedding photographer, Max Parry, a smooth talking serial killer who is determined to make the ultimate film about murder. He chooses his victims by recording his film over a generic horror VHS before returning it to rental store and waiting for the next person to rent it, hence the title. THE LAST HORROR MOVIE had its world premiere at FrightFest in 2003 and quickly made an impact on the festival circuit winning 16 awards including, Best UK Feature at Raindance, Best Film at New York Independent Horror Film Festival, Best Film at Eerie Horror Film Festival and the prestigious Melies D'Argent for Best European Fantasy Film awarded annualy by the European Federation of Fantastic Films.
After an ingenious marketing campaign at the Cannes Film Festival where the croisette was daubed with hundreds of faux police wanted posters, THE LAST HORROR MOVIE was snapped up by Fangoria for US theatrical distribution and opened at the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin, Texas. THE LAST HORROR MOVIE was eventually released in over 20 territories and became a sensation in the UK where it remained at number 2 in the DVD charts for over a month, beating out many Hollywood blockbusters.
MJ Simpson, author of Urban Terrors: New British Horror Cinema, commented on the forthcoming release of THE LAST HORROR MOVIE "For my money, it's a strong contender for the best British horror film of the 21st century and if you've never seen it, here's your chance to remedy that."
