So The Last Exit filmed in Northern Worcester County. Why couldn’t the film be shown in the Gardner area? Well, that’s one spooky area and maybe moviegoers might not want to spend too much time in the dark in that region.
In truth, there is no movie theater in the region. You could go all the way over to Greenfield, but that has its own problems as to scary rural and semi-rural Nova Anglia.
It was at a distance, for most of cast and crew. Still it was a pleasant enough venue nonetheless.
The Boston film Industry Examiner has reported on The Last Exit previously. We had a discussion about it with Allison Lahikainen who wrote the screen play based on a story concept by director Andrew Sawyer and Andrew Shanley. The movie is fun and I hope you get to see it. I don’t want to give too much away.
This is one persistent wolfie. He has given hero (a sort of a day late and a dollar short hero played by Andrew Shanley) Sam a reason to live, revenge. In a departure, the beast does not change back to something else. Hey, as Sigmund Freud said, sometimes a wolf is just a wolf.
The showing at the Capitol Theater in Arlington was fun, as much as a movie accompanied by gore can be. The Boston Film Industry Examiner got to speak to most of the cast. Enjoy the embedded video.
