She survived a massacre, but lost her life.
Part slasher movie, part character study, LAST GIRL STANDING is a penetrating and intimate look at what happens to the survivors of horror movies.
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?
"One of the most unexpected and contemplative psychological thrillers of the year."
Cast & Crew
BENJAMIN R. MOODY (Writer/Director) | RACHEL MOODY (Producer)
After being dubbed the “mom and pop” of horror by FrightFest founder, Ian Rattray, married filmmaking duo Benjamin R. Moody (writer/director) and Rachel Moody (producer) laughed at how true that statement was. The couple started working together in 2008 when they created their production company Blue Goggles Films. Starting as a two-person crew, the team built their filmmaking family while making over 20 short films and ultimately their first feature film, Last Girl Standing, which debuted at FrightFest in 2015. Last Girl Standing is coming out in the US on Nov. 1, 2016. Click here to pre-order: iTunes, Amazon.
