‘Something sinister awaits’
The Final Scream is a 2019 British horror film about an aspiring actress who 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…
The Proportion Productions movie stars Kate Lister (Curse of the Scarecrow; Mandy the Haunted Doll; Unhinged; Fox Trap), Marc Ozall, Becca Hirani, Cassandra French, Tiffany-Ellen Robinson and Denese Ricketts.
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 a part 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…
“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
“Thankfully writer/director Scott Jeffrey manages to rein the film back in for the final 20 minutes, bringing this one to a decent, if not truly successful, close. My only gripe? A bigger budget would’ve allowed for the necessary effects set-pieces this film needs to raise it above others of this ilk. The story was there…” Nerdly
The Final Scream is available via digital platforms such as Amazon.
Kia Anderson: “It’s isolated, it’s exactly what you’d expect for a horror film'”
