A rep from Jinga Films, the production/distro house run by Julian Richards, has sent out a link to a story on Time Out London explaining that Tartan UK will no longer be making any new discs for The Last Horror Movie, Richards' debut about a serial killer who videotapes his crimes and plants them in home video stores across the UK.
The reason theyíre stopping all production is where it gets scary. A disturbed teenager in Yorkshire murdered two of his friends back in 2005, and it was just revealed recently that he did so after watching The Last Horror Movie repeatedly over the course of four days. Tartan is pulling all copies of the film not because they believe there is a link between watching violence and committing it but, as they state, "as a mark of respect for the families of all concerned."
Thankfully itís not as simple as horror movies being blamed for the deaths, as pretty much any article you can find about the incident states that the accused teenager has a history of mental health issues.
