Quotes

Max Parry: Now, why don't I care about that? I mean, I know you care about that; that's why you think I'm a bad person, but the thing is, I don't care about it. I didn't ask not to care about it, but I don't. And if I don't care, how can I think it's wrong? And if I don't think it's wrong, why shouldn't I do it?

Alternate Versions

German version was heavily edited because the ratings board FSK as well as the JK/SPIO (juristical committee of the German film business association) thought that this film might violate §131 (glorification of violence). The version certified by the JK/SPIO runs 67 minutes, the version with a "Not under 18" rating from the FSK runs not even one hour. See more »

Interesting idea thats been done before
10 December 2004 | by diggler302See all my reviews

The Last Horror Movie is a cinema verite film. Done obviously on a low budget and this does show. But this really does just add to the authenticy that the film is trying to portray, a home made documentary about a serial killers life.

Starring Kevin Howarth as Max, a seemingly normal, intelligent and suave gentleman who works as a freelance wedding photographer. The problem with Max is the fact he is also a cunning, evil and cannibalistic serial killer.

This film does borrow heavily from the great Belgian film "Man Bites Dog" and even seems to have even gone so far as to steal a couple of lines of dialogue from the above mentioned movie.

This film does hold up on it's own merits. It has some very cringe worthy scenes of extreme violence. Even I, who on the whole part am quite jaded had a chill down my spine on a few occasions. Though it is not a murder fest with every scene yet another depiction of ultra violence.

Overall it has been done before, but is still a refreshing film due to the intelligence of the script and amazingly scary portrayal of Max by Kevin Howarth.

If you are into more mindless violence it really deserves a out 5 of 10

If you like a bit of story and character interaction then this gets a 7 out of 10
