Watch The Last Horror
Vinny Durand (Joe Spinell) is a New York City taxi driver. He dreams of directing a film starring the actress Jana Bates (Caroline Munro), known as the "queen of horror films". Durand, who lives in an apartment with his mother (Filomena Spagnuolo), tells her that he is leaving to attend the Cannes Film Festival in France. He hopes to meet Bates and get her to star in his movie to kickstart his directing career. His mother tries to discourage him, calling it a "crazy idea."
At Cannes, Bates is promoting her latest horror film Scream in which she has been nominated for Best Actress. Accompanying Jana is her manager and ex-husband Bret Bates (Glenn Jacobson), and the film's producer and boyfriend Alan Cunningham (Judd Hamilton). Durand tries to meet Bates, but is turned away. Durand phones Bret, only to find out agented scripts are accepted. Shortly afterwards, Bates is at a press conference with Cunningham when she receives flowers and a note saying, "You've made your last horror film. Goodbye." She goes to see Bret at his hotel room and finds he's been murdered. When she later returns with the police, the body is gone.
While Jana attends more press conferences, Vinny goes to a nightclub where he attacks a stripper after seeing her as Jana. He goes to a local cinema where he watches a gory horror film of Stanley Kline, and runs into him outside the theater. The following day, Susan tells Stanley that she wants to leave Cannes, but he convinces her to stay a while longer. That evening, both of them are killed by the hooded figure atop a building where Stanley is stabbed, and she falls off the building's ledge after getting shot. The killer then takes his movie camera and films all the deaths.
The image falls back to reveal that the whole story is a movie that Vinny filmed at the Cannes Film Festival with Jana Bates, and he is now back in New York showing it to his mother in a screening room. His mother tells Vinny that she is finally proud of him for directing and starring in his first movie, but Vinny explains that it will be his last horror film. As Vinny starts to talk to his mother about ideas for his next movie, she interrupts him to ask for a joint. The two share a smoke as the film ends.
Triskaidekafiles is a love letter to cheesy cinema from the 80s and 90s, with the occasional dip into other eras. if you're a fan of MST3K, Elvira, Joe Bob Briggs, or just bad horror movies in general, Trisk is the place for you.
Heck that was golden sweet. His loving mama, baked macaroni, and worrying about what he's upto next. Vinnie with his school boy posters of his idol, no clue how to speak to women, and a dream of making his horror film. I remember my Duran Duran days, posters all over the wall, I was so sure I was going to marry John Taylor. If only my mammie had been more like Vinnie's.
Awkward, film-obsessed NYC cab driver Joe Spinell fantasizes about making a movie with horror actress Caroline Munro and winning an Oscar. He decides to chase his dreams by heading to the Cannes Film Festival, stalking Munro and filming the movie without her knowledge. As everyone around her rejects his attempts to meet with Munro, they start turning up dead. It's like a slasher version of Bowfinger.
The opening credits with Depeche Mode playing in the background is perfectly atmospheric. Synthpop at its finest. This is why I love the '80s lol. Underrated horror flick with a stronger first half, but Joe Spinell and especially Caroline Munro kept me engaged throughout.

To better celebrate the newest age of Horror, we've put together a list of some of the most unsettling films created in the last decade.Updated December 22nd, 2021 by Russ Boswell: Although some fans are reminiscent of the Horror boom seen throughout the 80s and 90s, that doesn't mean there aren't some truly scary films in the modern age. Some of the scariest horror movies ever made came out between the years of 2010 and 2020. In the modern age, the scariest movies take advantage of an increase in special effects, storytelling methods, and some grade-A acting from some truly talented people. To shine a better light on the scariest horror movies that appeared throughout the last decade, the following list has been updated and includes even more entries that horror fans should check out.
Creep failed to get a lot of "global attention" from critics, with many of them overlooking the horror gem. Thankfully, audiences gave the Patrick Brice and Mark Duplass film a chance, with many of them finding themselves completely disturbed by the story that unfolded.
Creep follows a seemingly simple premise that shows a man responding to a Craigslist add seeking someone to record a dying man's last words. What starts out as something somber and heartwarming soon degrades into a horror fest that should keep anyone on the edge of their seat throughout.
There are a lot of great horror movies out there that subvert expectations and transform seemingly simple concepts into truly terrifying works of art. Don't Breathe is a great example of both of these concepts, taking the idea of a "home robbery" and turning it into something that is far more sinister than it first appears.
While a home robbery is definitely pretty alarming for anyone who experiences it, a group of thieves gets the fright of their lives in Don't Breathe when they attempt to break into the home of a blind man in the hopes of scoring an easy haul. What transpires is a truly unsettling dive into horror that received rave reviews from both audiences and critics alike. 076b4e4f
