Plot:

An aspiring actress, Kia Anderson (Kate Lister, Unhinged), is desperate to make it in the filmmaking business, however, with a number of recent rejections she begins to second doubt herself. That is until she receives a callback for a horror movie.

Excited, and feeling it is her moment, Kia accepts the invitation, and upon arriving at the isolated house, she meets the director and his crew who are to film her audition workshop that weekend as apart of the “behind the scenes footage”.

However, soon, Kia will learn that she has already been cast, and the filmmakers aren’t recording “behind the scenes”, and she has found herself on the movie set of a snuff film where her life will literally become that of a horror film…

Reviews:

“The Final Scream works not only because it has great performances but also it has a really good script which peels back the lens to show life on a low-budget film set, and  which tricks the viewer into discerning which performances are “real” and which are “for the camera”. Flash Bang Film Review
