” …a serious, quite somber character study, an examination of mental illness, specifically PTSD. Writer and Director Benjamin R. Moody uses the format of the slasher film as a jumping off point, but then abandons the tropes of the genre completely. Although the approach is mostly refreshing, it also makes for quite a grim, sour affair.” Elliott Maguire, UK Horror Scene

“Moody obviously did his homework before stepping into the director’s seat, riddling the film with numerous subtle nods to some of the best slashers of yesteryear. Though the movie focused more on the dramatic elements of the story, there were some serviceable horrific scenes peppered throughout.” Luis H.C., Bloody Disgusting


“It’s partly brilliant, but there’s also a lot of duff ideas that are lazily added into the movie just to give it a conclusion. There are several other directions the movie could have gone, and each one of them is better than what they did. A real shame, as there was a lot of promise in Last Girl Standing that just didn’t deliver.” Luke Owen, Flickering Myth


“Overall, Last Girl Standing is a credible first time feature with promise and an interesting angle from which to view the horror genre. It’s just missing that je ne sais quoi to catapult it to something more.” Sacha Hall, The Hollywood News

” …the cinematic equivalent of a personality disorder, but it is rather fascinating to watch Moody’s screenplay turn on itself. For horror fans, it is more of thematically interesting film rather than a fully emotionally satisfying one.” Joe Bendel, J.B. Spins

“This film makes even the goriest of slasher movies look like light and fluffy fare in comparison. What unspools on screen is also all the more brutal given the protagonist of this particular tale. To say more about Last Girl Standing would be to do the film a disservice. This is a movie that needs to tell its story unhampered by any expectations or any preconceived notions.” Phil Wheat, Nerdly


The film received its world premiere at FrightFest in the UK and was subsequently picked up for UK distribution by Icon (The BabadookIt Follows).
