“A Multi-Scream Adventure” – Back to the Movies
London, UK. (18/06/2014)– Horror legend Robert Englund (Freddy Krueger from the Nightmare On Elm Street franchise) presides over a midnight movie massacre in the edge-of-your-seat psychological horror THE LAST SHOWING, screening to captive cinema audiences from 22 August courtesy of Vertigo Films.
Packed with tension and deadly twists, the film features a true icon of the horror genre plus a strong cast of rising British talent, including Finn Jones (TV’s ‘Game Of Thrones’) and Emily Berrington (The Inbetweeners 2, TV’s ‘24: Live Another Day’). Malachi Kirby (Gone Too Far, TV’s EastEnders), Chris Geere (After Earth) and Keith Allen (The Others) also star.
When projectionist Stuart Lloyd (Englund) is made redundant by the multiplex cinema he gave his life to, he seeks revenge on a generation that no longer requires his skills. Trapping a young couple inside the cinema during a midnight screening, he sets a deadly plot in motion to make them the unwitting stars of his own chilling horror movie. As they struggle for their lives, the pair are unaware that the CCTV cameras are rolling and that the stage is set for a fatal finale.
THE LAST SHOWING was written and directed by Phil Hawkins (The Butterfly Tattoo) and produced by Alexandra Baranska of The Philm Company. Ithas a run time of approximately 88 minutes and is yet to be rated.
