MAIN SCREEN: THE LAST SHOWING

 

 

There are few names that say 'genre legend' or 'horror icon' much like that of Robert Englund, so it's always exciting to hear of a new film that he's starring in. Some of his recent roles have been little more than cameos, so to have him as the main protagonist in an upcoming British horror film is does more than just pique the interest. Phil Hawkins directs the independent chiller The Last Showing, which makes its world premiere on Frightfest's Main Screens at 18.30, 20.35 and 23.15 on the 22nd August. Coincidentally, it also hits cinema screens the same day so festival attendees aren't getting the jump on regular cinema patrons. It will be followed up by a DVD, Blu-ray and VOD release on the 25th August through Vertigo Films.

 

Synopsis:

 

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.

 

Alongside Robert Englund, the compact cast also features Finn Jones from Game Of Thrones, and Emily Berrington of The Inbetweeners 2 and 24: Live Another Day. Malachi Kirby (Gone Too Far, EastEnders), Chris Geere (After Earth) and Keith Allen (The Others) also star.
