After Last Season is a 2009 American drama-thriller film written, directed, produced, and shot by Mark Region.
The film stars Jason Kulas and Peggy McClellan as medical students who use experimental neural microchips to discover the identity of a killer who has been murdering their classmates.
The movie is dubbed one of the worst movies of all time and for good reason. The movie features poor acting, horrible sets, a ridiculous script, cheesy effects and horrific editing. Oh, did we mention the movie cost a whopping $5 million to create? What???
That’s right! The filming of the movie cost around $30,000 to $40,000. However, millions of dollars was spent on editing, special effects and animation.
One would think that the film was produced for a few thousand dollars by a group of college kids.
According to Wikipedia, this is the plot description of the film.
Matthew Andrews and Sarah Austin are medical interns studying neurology at the Prorolis Corporation. When a serial killer begins murdering their fellow students, they use experimental chips to visualize the events of the crimes. They conclude through these visualizations that they may be able to see, and therefore prevent, the next murder before it occurs, and learn that the killer is a ghost. It is revealed at the end of the film that the events were all a dream.
The entire movie was filmed in one location (a house) over a 5 to 6 day period. Fake medical equipment was constructed using cardboard. A $5 million budget and the props were cardboard folks!
Director Mark Region has cited The Sixth Sense and The Exorcist as inspirations for After Last Season.
I think the director missed his mark a bit….what do you think?
