The Philm Company has announced the start of principal photography of The Last Showing, a $2M psychological horror that will shoot for four weeks, entirely on location in the north west of England, reports ScreenDaily.
Cult horror actor Robert Englund (pictured; Nightmare On Elm Street, Hatchet) and Keith Allen (Shallow Grave) join a cast that includes Malachi Kirby (Gone Too Far), Finn Jones (Game of Thrones) and Emily Berrington (The White Queen).
“The story centers on young couple Martin (Jones) and Allie (Berrington) who head to their local cinema to see the late night horror show but unwitting become stars of their own horror story.”
Englund, who memorably took revenge on teens as Freddy Krueger, plays former projectionist Stuart who has been demoted by advancing technology and exacts his vengeance on a generation that no longer requires his skills.
The Last Showing is from an original script by writer-director Phil Hawkins (Being Sold), marking his third feature. Former 20th Century Fox executive Alexandra Baranska is producing.
