A Look At The Period Horror Film THE LAST MATINEE With Director Maxi Contenti

The year is 1993 and it’s a rainy night downtown in the capital city of Uruguay, Montevideo. A struggling movie theater sets up for its last show of the evening, a foreign horror film. The crowd is sparse: a few teenagers, a first date, an old man with nowhere to go, and a child who snuck in to simply see a scary movie. What none of those people or the tiny staff of the theater realize is that a very deranged and dangerous person has chosen this dreary evening to make this movie house their hunting ground. Before the last reel ends people will die in horrible ways for unspeakable reasons, blood will drip from the screen, and those who want to live will have to fight for their very lives.
