» » The Last Halloween (2014)

Short summary

The city is quiet; the streets, deserted. It doesn't much feel like Halloween, and yet four young trick-or-treaters - a Ghost, a Devil, a Grim Reaper and a Witch - make their way through the night, door to door and house by house, gathering up an unlikely harvest of kindness amid the devastated wreckage of society's collapse. In a world where the only rule is that there are no rules anymore, it is perhaps a fitting irony that it should all come down to this - a simple choice between two starkly different options. The Last Halloween is here at last, and the time has come to make your choice. So, what will it be? Trick? Or treat?

    A well- crafted 10 minute film, pretty much all the great horror elements are in play, like fog drenched atmosphere, crazy characters and a spine tingling score. I guess it's an homage to the 80's horror style in other words it's not found footage. And it's fun - a real throwback. The psycho in the first scenes deserves his own place in the horror dungeon of fame. Unlike this little gem I will have to pad out my story. Gotta say the last shot was fairly epic. I guess I should mention the makeup. Big crew. There's no blood or gore or torture or gorgeous nubile young bodies screaming at each other either. So what else is on . . .

    It's essentially a retelling of Halloween origin stories (minus the deep pagan bits) in such a way that hits a lot closer to home than you'd expect.Even after most of the world has ended, the spirit of Halloween lives on as long as there are people around. If anything, it's as if removing large chunks of the population intensified the narrative in a lot of ways because it makes it all the more unsettling... like sawing away all the rotten wood on an old fence so it's nothing but twisted planks and nails. Really good idea pretty much to get the most out of not too much money and make sure the story takes center stage, Story is clever, effects are good, execution is top notch with a few cameos from recognizable faces, and pay off is definitely worth it if not predictable.

    The atmosphere. The inspired plot. The mistery and the revelation. The roots of holliday and the great end scene. And, sure, the twist. Admirable use of cliches . And good support for reflection about contemporary society. Basic virtue - it is the fine definition of Halloween, from make-up and special effects to the performances.
