Blu-ray Review - The Last Horror Film


Obsession cinema hits the hotels and beaches of France in 1982's "The Last Horror Film," which boldly takes its inspiration from John Hinckley's 1981 assassination attempt on President Ronald Reagan, with the would-be killer hoping to impress actress Jodie Foster with his display of violence.
