Drive-In Dust Offs: The Last Horror Film (1982)

29 October 2016 1:38 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Joe Spinell was a unique character actor in his time. From supporting turns in The Godfather: Part II (1974), Rocky (1976), and beyond, he was never less than interesting on screen; usually playing a mobster, shyster, or cop, his amusingly sleazy demeanour helped him stand out from the crowd. Terror lovers know Spinell from Maniac (1980), the notorious passion project that he also co-wrote. His follow up on the silver scream was The Last Horror Film (1982), a much more lighthearted take on obsession that not only reteamed him with his Maniac co-star Caroline Munro, but jetted them off to The Cannes Film Festival to boot. And while it doesn’t have the gut punch impact of Maniac, it’s the more enjoyable film.

Shown at the Sitges Film Festival in 1982, Tlhf did not receive a theatrical release stateside; instead most folks had to wait for Media Entertainment to drop it onto home video »
