A model (Carolin Hasselmann) enters an empty studio ... where she is
suddenly attacked by someone in a cheap horror mask, tied up - and then
she gets cheese (!?) smeared all over her face ...
Another model (Maja Loom) enters the same studio, is attacked by the same person in horror
mask, is tied up and then ... Ms horrormask is revealed to be Angela
(Sandra Lüdke), a woman who went to school with the model, but who never
was as pretty as our model, and who always was at the butt-end of the
jokes of Ms perect and her friends - which she thinks destroyed her whole
life. Thing is, Angela knows the model is incredibly ticklish, so she
promises to tickle the model to death ...
Yet another model (Micaela
Schäfer) pays a visit to the studio, and she's welcomed with open arms by
Angela - but Angela of course has ulterior motives, since model number
three was the closest friend of the first two girls ... and Angela
tells her exactly how she killed the others (the first girl got her face
eaten off by rats, the second had a noose round her neck tied to her feet
and was then pretty much literally tickled to death) - then she ties her
up as well. But when her latest victim won't die as easily as the first
two girls (she's not ticklish at all), Angela starts to lose it, and even
trying to drown her in the bath tub won't work cause this girl's a
fighter. Ultimately, the tied up girl even manages to get out of the tub,
throw Angela in, and push a hairdryer in as well to electrocute her.
when Angela is already lying dead in the tub does the model, who has been
Ms sweetness all through her ordeal, show her true face ... and she's
pretty much just the asshole Angela has accused her to be.
writing, Last Laugh might sound pretty much like your typical
slasher/survival horror flick, yet writer/director Michael Huck has
stripped the concept of these genres to the bone, and instead of just
delivering a piece of genre fare where fancy camerawork and rapid editing
are supposed to obscure the lack of depth and bland characters of the
piece, Huck focuses on his characters and their interactions and turns his
film into a tense and suspenseful psychodrama carried by well-written
dialogues and good performances - especially Sandra Lüdke as psychotic
Angela is really creepy.
By the way, this was developed out of a
featurette of the Unhappy End!-series, also titled Last
Laugh - which basically consists of the middle segment featuring
Sandra Lüdke and Déborah Behrens, shot from different angles and
