High school stories are usually fun - and in that respect, this doesn't differ
too much. Except that this isn't some steamy school romance but a supposed horror
Alex and Sarah are high school students who are dating. Now the basement of
the school is supposedly haunted, but dismissing such notions, a gym is built
there. One night, Alex goes back to school to do some research in the library
and finds nobody there except this beautiful girl.
The next that he knows, he's woken up buck-naked in the school in the morning,
and he can't remember anything in between. Going over some old newspapers, he
sees that the girl from the previous night is Marylou - the 1967 prom queen
who died in a mysterious fire.
Soon, Marylou takes over Alex's life - killing uncooperative teachers, helping
him on the football field and lots else. Not that our man minds.
Suddenly there's shooting all over and Alex is arrested. Huh? But the people
in the theater weren't complaining for reasons that I'll uncover later. As expected,
Marylou helps Alex out of jail and threatens to kill his girlfriend Sarah at
the prom. Just as she's about to do it, Alex offers himself and Marylou takes
him down into hell. Our brave heroine follows, and after killing off a bunch
of ghouls and goblins, she saves the day.
A hurrah from the audience for the film!
Only, it wasn't for the movie - it was for the 'extra' clips that the nice projector
man showed them. So what if the best scenes from Madonna's 'Body of Evidence'
don't exactly fit in with 'The Last Kiss'? In fact, the way that they were integrated
into the movie made sure that nobody but, ahem, the connoisseurs could tell
the difference. The extensive demonstrations of Madonna's flexibility and 'prowess'
were not at all unwelcome to the group of voyeurs. After that part was over,
they somehow lost interest in the rest of the actual film and the exodus began.
They decided they'd seen the last kiss.
