2000’s American Psycho did things better, but American Psycho isn’t all that The Last Horror Movie reminds us of. Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer is an obvious influence. This is the story of a serial killer whose every murder is filmed by a silent, shy, and mysterious assistant. It’s a found footage film so seamlessly integrated you forget that’s what you’re watching.
The killer speaks to the camera every other scene, asking the viewer questions, challenging their moral values, and suggesting they may, too, be deranged if they’re “still watching”, after all. The premise may be ludicrous and oversimplified, but it gets you wondering why no serial killer has attempted this spectacle before, knowing that most of them have disproportionate egos.
Because of the faux-documentary format, we don’t have the benefit of a score, of pacing, and the editing is purposely bad. This causes two things: first, we feel like voyeurs and part of the action; second, we have no sense of gravitas, of rhythm, of time, or of escalation. We don’t sympathize with the good guys and certainly not with the bad guys. Nevertheless, this is an interesting experience.
