Btvs The canonicity of this article's subject remains dubious. Though it doesn't contradict official continuity, it has not been referenced in any confirmed canonical material.

Los Angeles went to hell. Every third person in Los Angeles is a screenwriter. Sooner or later, someone was going to write a movie about what happened. They could have gotten one fact correct. Just one.

Last Angel in Hell was a film based on the Fall of Los Angeles. It starred Angel Cartwright as a the heroic cop who saved Los Angeles when it was sent to hell. Though based on actual events, the film took artistic license with some of the facts,[1] such as its depiction of Spike as female and Lorne as a villain.[2]

There was a four-issue prequel comic book series published before the movie was released.[1] It included the stories Sara's Tale and Divine Immunity.[2] However, some fans couldn't sleep questioning if it was considered "canon."[1] The sequence was titled: Last Angel in Hell 2: Next Last Angel in Hell.[2]

The Angel Investigations team had highly varying opinions and reactions to the film. For example, Angel was irritated and offended by the inaccuracy of the film, while Spike was amused that his film counterpart was a woman, reflecting that she was at least "hot."[1]


Behind the scenes[]

  • The canonicity of the contents of Last Angel in Hell is unknown; while the existence of the film is confirmed in a canonical story (Alone Together Now), its previous appearances had been in publications from a dubious-canon series (Angel IDW series). This question is used as a joke in the film's first appearance, Boys and Their Toys, Part One, when an festival attendee worries: "There is a four-issue prequel comic book series coming out before the movie is released. Are we to believe this shall be considered canon or is it a fan-fiction toss-off? I've lost much sleep over this."
