We all know what we were taught in elementary school about the foundation of Turkey Day but Lorinc a graduate of the University of Miami film school turns that bit of history on its ear with a cannibalistic family celebrating their version of a traditional Thanksgiving handed down from their ancestors.

Lisa-Marie (Samantha Ferrand) is an angst-filled server at the local diner who is scheduled for the Thanksgiving shift where a quiet day quickly picks up.  The diner has its colorful cast of patrons who are enjoyable by both the viewer and the hungry household.  One unlucky customer in particular is sure to take hold of your horror wishbone; scream queen Linnea Quigley plays Paulette.

Lorinc does a great job setting the table with a main course of horror peppered with a pinch of comedy, a side of inventive kills and a big bad helping of Pilgrim slasher.  So as your settling in after your feast be sure to save room for a helping of “The Last Thanksgiving” it will be sure to counteract the tryptophan.
