Ricardo Islas On Playing A Killer In The Horror Film The Last Matinee [Exclusive Interview]

The Last Matinee

The Last Matinee had me thinking of how we experience a horror film in theaters. The larger-than-life screen makes sure you don’t miss out on any detail. The blaring speakers surrounding you enhance every footstep and rustling noise. The unsettling mood of the audience as they prepare for the impending jump scare. But the interesting thing about being in a room with a large audience is that sometimes your cinematic experience becomes very intimate. Almost creating a bubble where you don’t notice everyone else. So would you even notice if the people around you slowly started disappearing?

Dark Star Pictures and Bloody Disgusting this week have released, The Last Matinee. This is a South American horror film that really pays homage to the Giallo and slasher subgenres. Being made with a hyper-realistic approach it was made by filmmaker Maxi Contenti as a sort of a horror rollercoaster ride. The Last Matinee stars Luciana Grasso, Ricardo Islas, Julieta Spinelli, Franco Duran, and Pedro Duarte.

Here is the synopsis for 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.
