20 years ago, a bunch of kids (Danilo Uncino, Sara Cominato, Alice Bonzani, Luca Cagnetta, Massimo Cantori) have seen something so unbelievable that it shattered their world and destroyed their friendship. But especially Alan (Roberto D'Antona) has never forgotten about what he saw, and has since become an archeologist, trying to find out the truth by studying legends. And what he has found out is as unbelievable than it looked back when, they have actually witnessed an old man, Oras (Carmelo Bacchetta) sending a witch, Kaisha (Annamaria Lorusso) to hell. Thing is, since then someone, Sirio (Alex D'Antona), has summoned Kaisha again, and she goes on a rampage to conquer the world, starting with Alan's hometown. And soon, the little village is riddled by zombie attacks and similar ungodly occurances - reason enough for Alan, who has been all over the world on the job to return home again and hook up with his friends from back when, Leo (Francesco Emulo), Asia (Nicole Blatto), Mia (Erica Verzotti) and Alex (Fabrizio Narciso). Now while Alan has an idea what's going on, he has no idea how to fight Kaisha, but fortunately Asia has since taken a job in Oras' curio shop, and Oras thinks he recognises the chosen one who can send Kaisha back to Hell in Alan and hands him magic daggers. There's just one problem, to get even into striking distance to Kaisha, Alan and friends have to fight their way through her zombie army, and even if they're eventually joined by a cynic cop (Andrea Milan) and two air-headed martial artists (Michael Segal, Carmelo Bacchetta), that's anything but an easy task ...

 

Now of course, the story The Last Heroes tells isn't exactly an original one, in fact such stories have been a staple of 1980s Italian horror, from Lucio Fulci's Gothic Trilogy downwards, and makes little if any attempts to hide its influences. But that's not at all to say The Last Heroes is a simply derivative movie, as it more than makes up what it might lack in originality in style, atmosphere, suspense, gruesomeness ... and humour, the one element yesteryear's shockers from Italy so sadly lacked. But that doesn't make this movie a moronic parody at all, the humour, that's mostly very Italian in style, is well-placed, never detracts from suspense or atmosphere or destroys tension, but it makes its rather esoteric concept more relatable. And apparently the whole cast was in on the joke, and especially Michael Segal as air-headed martial artist is really hilarious.

Really cool genre entertainment in all.
