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, can Camryn ever have a normal life again or is she destined to be alone? Part slasher movie and part character study, Last Girl Standing is a penetrating and intimate look at what happens to the survivors of horror movies.
User Reviews: Apparently the director’s reason for making this cheap, independent slasher movie was the question "what happens to the final girl after the credits roll?". He answers his own question in a no budget way in this derivative and uninteresting movie, that seems to hinge on a familiar old twist that I already saw played out – better – in previous slasher sequels and the like. It’s hardly original.
Akasha Villalobos plays the sole survivor of a massacre at the hands of a bizarrely-costumed killer in the film’s opening sequence. She struggles to adapt to normal life afterwards, but ends up alienating herself from her social group. The problem the viewer has is that the character is completely unlikeable and as an actress Villalobos is quite horrible, never displaying a moment of emotion despite her character’s ordeal.
Of course it transpires that the bloodshed isn’t over yet as LAST GIRL STANDING hinges on a major twist ending involving another killer. The cheap gore effects flow freely here but the twist itself is quite laughable and overstated. Sadly this is a film that never quite manages to overcome a lack of talent and budget and ends up being completely forgettable as a result.
