The Last Halloween (2013)
The film is set in a post-apocalyptic landscape. In the future, a deserted city and its residents struggle to survive. It doesn’t much feel like Halloween, and yet four young trick-or-treaters – a Ghost, a Devil, a Grim Reaper and a Witch – make their way through the night, door to door and house by house, gathering up an unlikely harvest of kindness amid the devastated wreckage of society’s collapse. In a world where the only rule is that there are no rules anymore, it is perhaps a fitting irony that it should all come down to this… a simple choice between two starkly different options. The Last Halloween is here at last, and the time has come to make your choice. So, what will it be? Trick? Or treat?
Based on a comic book by Roussel’s writing partner Mark Thibodeau with impressive cinematography, production and costume design will remind you of post-apocalyptic classics such as ‘Delicatessen’ and ‘The Road’.
