Watch an Exclusive Clip from Last Girl Standing: "Classic slasher films often feature a young, usually female hero who alone manages to survive the carnage - but the films end there without showing the lasting effect the trauma has on that hero. The gripping new film LAST GIRL STANDING takes things that one step further, revealing the ongoing horror of life after near death. It arrives on DVD and digital platforms on November 1, 2016.
Five years ago, a masked killer brutally murdered a group of friends. Since then, Camryn, the lone survivor, has struggled to reclaim her shattered life. Wracked with guilt and paranoia, Camryn leads a depressingly lonely existence until Nick, a new co-worker, befriends her and attempts to integrate her into his group of friends.
But just when she might be ready to start a new life, Camryn's past comes back to haunt her. Can she ever have a life again, or is she destined to be alone?
Part slasher movie, part character study, LAST GIRL STANDING is the impressive feature debut of writer-director Benjamin R. Moody, whose widely seen short films include "Skyrim Intervention" and "A Very Arkham City Christmas." It's a penetrating and intimate look at what happens to the survivors of nightmares that seem to come straight from horror movies.
The vibrant cast includes Akasha Villalobos (Now Hiring, the upcoming Camera Obscura) as Camryn, Danielle Evon Ploeger (Wind & Rain), Brian Villalobos (Saratoga Lights) and Jason Vines (The Man From Orlando).
LAST GIRL STANDING had its world premiere at London's FrightFest, and Akasha Villalobos won as Best Actress at both the New York City Horror Film Festival and Tucson Terrorfest.
"A captivating depiction of survivor's guilt and post-traumatic stress, and a very entertaining movie," wrote Luiz H.C. at Bloody-disgusting.com. Fangoria's Ken W. Hanley said LAST GIRLSTANDING "offers one of the most engrossing subversions on the genre in quite some time." Nerdly's Phil Wheat called it "a new take on the slasher genre."
