The film has a good mix of dark humour and slasher horror with some nice female nudity and a great over the top performance from Mr Spinell. It stands the test of time well.

The UK blu-ray is uncut and present in 1.85/16x9. It looks very good in HD but there is a disclaimer before the film stating that it has been sourced from various prints.

Most of the film appears to have been transferred from an original negative and therefore looks the best it ever has. Occasional scenes are faded and worn and there is one VHS quality scene about half way through. But this composite print is 90% very good.

Extras include a good commentary, the short film Maniac 2 Mr Robbie (very gory), Q&A session with Caroline Munro, trailers, tv sspots, collector booklet, interview with Spinell;s's friend.

Solid release, film has never looked better.

After the relatively huge success (for a low budget gutter level violence-fest [that's a recommendation by the way...]) of Bill Lustig's Maniac Caroline Munro and Joe Spinell were once again paired up following a drive from the original backers, probably in the hope of repeating the financial rewards. As before, Munro is a celebrity beauty while the 'beast' is Spinell in another unhinged schizophrenic role. Very unhinged. His character, Vinny, embarrassingly envisions himself as a world class film-maker as he becomes increasingly obsessed with actress Jana Bates (Munro). When he hears that she is to appear at Cannes film festival he packs his suitcase and 16mm camera to head off for the exotic region. During the frenzy at Cannes people begin dying - anyone who seems to have anything to do with Bates. All the while Vinny is grabbing footage with his camera and occasionally calling back home to lie to his mother that his work is becoming a great success (he doesn't even appear to have completed a film). He is also working his way ever closer to Bates.

This kooky film sits itself uncomfortably within the slasher sub-genre that was still booming around the time, but it's really unlike anything else that falls into that category. I wouldn't say it always works, and I wouldn't even describe it as very good, but it does have a rather messy personality all of its own somehow, and there is some enjoyment to be derived from its quirks even if it never truly goes to places that could have elevated the whole endeavour.

The 'uncut version' is released by 88 Films for the UK market, thankfully as a Blu-ray. Playing in full AVC-encoded HD at 24 frames per second and running to 87:37 (minus 15 seconds for the opening statement) the transfer is taken from several sources.

Another brilliant 88 films release on Blu-ray, This is a classic 80's movie with a great story that's original and well directed, the story is set around the Cannes film festival during the 80's of course, we follow an obsessed fan Joe Spinell as he stalks Caroline Munro a hot actress whom he wants for his movie, at the same time a killer is picking off directors and actors, the movie has some weird twists and turns as things are not what they seem, the film is great against he Cannes background and set amongst the glamour etc, the cast is brilliant of course reuniting Spinell and Munro again for 3 movies running as they were in Star Crash and Maniac, Munro still looks beautiful, one of the hottest scream queens back in the 80's, the soundtrack is cool too and there is some nice blood and gore and nudity, the Blu-ray picture is good for a restored 80's movie, some of the footage is lower quality were they have inserted some gore scenes that was missing originally, this is a top release a must have for 80's horror fans.

The Blu-ray has plentiful features too including commentary, interviews, and much more.
Blu-ray is region free ABC

I am really pleased I have this in my collection. I am a big fan of actor Joe Spinell who was in my opinion a very talented character actor who left us way too soon. A great guy... I enjoyed watching this film and with the extras makes it a worthwhile purchase. RIP Joe ...

This is a horrible releaase of a cult classic unofficial sequal to Maniac, at first it is a decent print but when it gets to the two juciest gore scenes it keeps switching to a print taken from a 3rd generation VHS tape. What you are left with instead is an inept storyline and performances, Joe Spinel and his dear Mum will be turning in their graves at this horrible blu ray.

Troman come back when you have a better transfer.

To finally find after so many years such a rare movie, paring the stars of Maniac together again, may seem a tasty temptation.
Be warned.
Joe is standardly sweaty and perverted again, Caroline is standardly screaming again. Sounds good?
The film is ruined by the worst comedy ending and the biggest 'stalker let off the hook' ending ever. The film festival backdrop saves it from total devastation as Joes taxi driver from New York stalks and threatens Caroline's film starlett as the gory murders pile up around them.

Please take my advice and don't pay too much for this.

Low budget shocker is undeniably fascinating for its setting, and its portrayal of the movie business. It reunites the two stars of "Maniac", Joe Spinell and Caroline Munro, in a story of NYC cabbie Vinny Durand (Spinell), a pathetic aspiring filmmaker who's obsessed with horror film star Jana Bates (Munro), tailing her to the Cannes Film Festival where she's promoting her latest film. In between Vinnys' desperate attempts to make contact with Jana, a psychotic killer is at work brutally dispatching various people in Janas' life. The film is co-written by Judd Hamilton, then married to Munro, and director David Winters, along with Tom Klassen, and Hamilton and Winters also play film directors on screen. Winters is more ambitious with his ideas and set ups than one would think, going for the surreal and laying on the creepy imagery at select points, and his framing is likewise interesting. The non stop pop / rock soundtrack helps to keep "The Last Horror Film" moving forward adequately, and there are some genuinely effective sequences, such as when a terrified Jana flees in terror from Vinny, clad in only a towel, and bemused onlookers think she's merely participating in a publicity stunt. Use of gore is entertaining - there's not a whole lot of it, but we do see a fair bit of the red stuff spilling. Cameos include June Chadwick and Robin Leach, and one truly compelling facet of this movie is the way it works as a snapshot of a particular place at a particular time, with many shots of posters of then current productions. Intriguing at every turn, "The Last Horror Film" also has a certain seedy ambiance going for it, with some nudity to go with its lurid thrills.Read more ›
