Inside, they find a man who will make them a dangerous offer to survive the outside world. From filmmaker Emiliano Rocha Minter, be prepared for this shocking new voice in horror.
LAST GIRL STANDING
We’ve seen the great “slashers” of the 80’s. But what happens to “the final girl” after the movie is over? This 2015 thriller from Ben Moody asks just that as we follow Camryn, the sole survivor of a camp massacre as she tries to assimilate back to regular life. But is the killer she thought she put down really dead? Or has he returned for his revenge?
This 2016 throw back to 80’s “slashers” was the first original production from Scream Factory and Chiller Films, and helmed by Mark Pavia, the director of NIGHT FLIER. Hilary gets in a minor fender bender on the road on the same weekend her parents leave her home alone. But what if her car accident wasn’t a coincidence and instead a way for a sadistic killer to get all the info he needs to stalk her and her friends?
