The writing and direction are incredibly on-point and the story is clearly an extension of writer/director Benjamin Moody and the things he loves (and fears.) It honestly brought to mind Del Toro's Pan's Labyrinth, mainly because Moody's ability to balance both genre work with character is so wonderfully done and goes beyond blood and guts and falls into that ever elusive category that we call "Art."
If you're a fan of horror, character studies, or just want to see a beautiful example of how to make a great film on a very low budget, I can't recommend Last Girl Standing enough. It's just a fantastic piece of filmmaking. Top to bottom. Congratulations to all involved.
Though the film easily qualities as a thriller and even enters the realm of horror, it also delves deeply into character. As we watch Camryn emerge from a five-year period of detachment, we get a look at what a victim of trauma must overcome to rejoin the world. Every day is a challenge for her until she begins to feel comfortable with a new group of friends.
Writer/director Benjamin R. Moody, however, sticks with traditional horror-flick ingredients; there’s a slasher, lots of gore, and considerable suspense. But what is driving the movie is concern for the troubled Camryn, the “final girl” in a slasher nightmare. Most horror films deal with the gradual picking off of characters until the final girl — because of a combination of luck and intelligence — manages to survive. But that’s where those films end. They never explore how the survivor fares in the aftermath of the bloodbath. “Last Girl Standing” takes this unsettling journey.
Special features on the DVD release include commentary with writer/director Ben Moody and producer Rachel Moody, making-of featurette, gag reel, filmed fight rehearsals, test footage, and set tour.
This film has nuance, scares and heart and is sure to become a cult classic in the years to come. Seek this one out!
