Frightfest 2015: First look at ‘Last Girl Standing’

by Phil Wheat

Part slasher movie and part character study, Last Girl Standing – the feature debut of Benjamin R. Moody (whose work you may know from web series De-Pixelated) – is a penetrating and intimate look at what happens to the survivors of horror movies starring Akasha Villalobos (Undercover Alien, Now Hiring), Danielle Evon Ploeger (Summer League), Brian Villalobos (De-Pixleated), JD Carrera (De-Pixelated: Max Payne 3), Ryan Hamilton, Kelsey Pribilski and Laura Ray.

Five years ago, a masked killer brutally murdered a group of friends. Since then, Camryn (Akasha Villalobos), the lone survivor, has struggled to reclaim her shattered life. Wracked with guilt and paranoia, Camryn leads a depressingly lonely existence until Nick (Brian Villalobos), a new co-worker, befriends Camryn and attempts to integrate her into his group of friends. Just when she might be ready to start a new life, Camryn’s past comes back to haunt her. Can Camryn ever have a life again, or is she destined to be alone?

According to director Benjamin R. Moody, Last Girl Standing is: “an exploration into one of horror’s biggest tropes. So many horror films, especially slasher movies, end with a lone surviving female, traumatized by the events that just transpired. When seeing your friends be hacked to pieces by a masked killer, how do you go back to regular life? We see this situation play out in almost every horror movie, but what about life after it? I wanted to dive into the aftermath of a slasher movie. I wanted to see where that survivor would be 5 years later and how those events might still affect her.”

Last Girl Standing premieres at London Film4 FrightFest on August 31st 2015. Check out the brand new trailer, poster and stills below – and we’ll hopefully be bringing you a review as part of our usual comprehensive Frightfest coverage in August!
