Dark Star & Bloody Disgusting Acquire Uruguay-Argentina Horror Film The Last Matinee

Los Angeles-based Dark Star Pictures has acquired the North American distribution rights to THE LAST MATINEE as part of its ongoing and exciting collaboration with horror leader Bloody Disgusting. Dark Star and Bloody Disgusting plan a theatrical release for THE LAST MATINEE early this summer with the on demand, digital and DVD release to follow in August.

Written and directed by Maxi Contenti (Muñeco viviente VNeptunia), the film stars Luciana Grasso (El Secreto de Julia), Ricardo Islas (El Que No Corre VuelaBailiwick), Julieta SpinelliFranco Duran and Pedro Duarte.

“I’m very happy to be part of the Dark Star Pictures roster, and super excited to present my movie to the North American audiences,” said director/writer Maxi Contenti.  “I hope they’ll enjoy the blood dripping screenings of The Last Matinee.”

In THE LAST MATINEE, the audience attending the last showing of a horror film in a small downtown cinema are terrorized by a murderer who begins to pick them off, one by one. The only person to notice that something strange is going on is the projectionist’s daughter.

Making its world premiere at Sitges Film Festival last summer, THE LAST MATINEE will be making its rounds at Panic Fest and Cleveland International Film Festival later this month. The film will also make its Canadian debut at the Calgary Underground Film Festival.
