Being hailed as Albania’s first horror film, we’ve got the exclusive first look at Last Day (The Best of Me), which is a body horror film with a bevy of practical FX that includes loads of blood, gore, and a penis with a mouth, teeth and tongue included. Look, I don’t write this stuff, okay? I just report it.
“A body horror freely inspired to the real story of Ricardo López, Bjork’s stalker.”
The story of López is a rather terrifying one. Obsessed with Icelandic musician Bjork for a few years, López became enraged when she began a relationship with fellow musician Goldie. Making video diaries for months, López sent a letter bomb to Bjork that was full of sulfuric acid in an attempt to kill her or, at the very least, devastatingly maim her. After he sent the package, he filmed himself explaining his plan before committing suicide. Police found his body and the video, allowing them to contact British authorities who intercepted the package before it could reach Bjork. A sad twist that López didn’t know was that Bjork and Goldie had separated a few days before he sent his package.
Directed by Domiziano Cristopharo, Last Day (The Best of Me) stars Jacopo Tomassini, Elisa Carrera Fumagalli, and Bjordi Mezini.
