Last Girl Standing is a horror movie released in 2015, directed by Benjamin R. Moody. The movie opens with a group of friends hiking in the woods, unaware of the danger that lurks nearby. The group eventually stumbles upon a maniacal killer who goes on a ruthless rampage leaving only one survivor - a young woman named Camryn (Akasha Villalobos).

The movie then fast forwards five years where Camryn is living in the city and working as a maid in a hotel. She appears to be normal at first glance, but it becomes evident that the tragedy she faced in the woods has left an indelible mark on her. The opening scene provides a sense of intrigue and sets the tone for the rest of the movie.

After the horrific incident in the woods, Camryn has isolated herself from society, living a life of solitude and fear. The flashbacks of the past continue to haunt her, and she constantly feels like she is being watched. Camryn's behavior is understandable given the trauma she has faced, and the director has done a good job in conveying the internal conflict she is facing.

Camryn's world is turned upside down when she meets a new coworker, Nick (Brian Villalobos). Nick's easy-going and non-judgmental nature resonates with Camryn, and they form a somewhat awkward but endearing friendship. Nick's presence brings some semblance of normalcy back into Camryn's life, and her character begins to brighten up as she comes out of her shell.

However, as the movie progresses, the audience is left wondering whether Camryn's fear of being stalked is simply paranoia or whether there is, in fact, a killer following her. Danielle Evon Ploeger plays with the audience's mind as she makes a brief but impactful appearance as the mysterious new tenant in Camryn's apartment building.

The movie stays true to its title, and the majority of the movie's running time is dedicated to Camryn, the last girl standing. The movie explores what happens to the lone survivor in a horror movie once the credits roll. The audience gets a glimpse into how traumatic events can irrevocably change a person's life, and no matter how hard they try, they cannot escape their past.

Last Girl Standing does not rely on excessive blood and gore to frighten its audience. Instead, there is an eerie tone throughout the movie, and Moody does an excellent job in creating tension with clever camera angles and lighting. The soundtrack also adds to the creepy atmosphere of the movie.

One of the most significant strengths of the movie lies in the acting. In particular, Akasha Villalobos delivers a phenomenal performance as Camryn. Villalobos adeptly portrays the fragility and vulnerability of Camryn's character, and the audience is rooting for her to overcome her fears and find happiness. Brian Villalobos also delivers a notable performance, providing the perfect contrast to Camryn's introverted character.

Last Girl Standing is not perfect, though. The movie does feel slow at times, and perhaps it could have done with editing some scenes. Also, some horror fans may feel a tad disappointed with the modest amount of gore on display. However, these are minor issues that do not detract from the movie's overall enjoyment.

In conclusion, Last Girl Standing is a refreshing take on the horror genre. It explores the aftermath of a horrifying event from a different perspective, and the portrayal of the lead character Camryn is poignant and nuanced. If you're a fan of psychological horror movies that rely on creating tension and developing characters, then Last Girl Standing is worth a watch.

Last Girl Standing is a 2015 drama with a runtime of 1 hour and 31 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 4.8.
