Blue Finch Films has released a photo for its upcoming horror film The Last Video Store revealing the first look at was is described as “a love letter to the era of the video store.”
The movie comes from directing duo Cody Kennedy and Tim Rutherford, who finished production on the movie in the Canadian port city of Hamilton.
“The Monster Squad meets Clerks when a pair of lifelong movie geeks must suddenly band together with a motley crew of strangers inside one of the last remaining video rental stores and attempt to survive– perhaps even stop the supernatural apocalypse happening just outside their doors.”
The story revolves around “a young woman who takes a collection of old video tapes to one of the last video stores in the world. Unbeknownst to her, she is in possession of a legendary ‘cursed tape’ that holds the power to connect the real world with another dimension in which B-movie fantasies are reality. When she and the video store owner unwittingly reawaken its curse, a raft of cinematic villains is unleashed.”
