The Last Survivors is a thrilling adventure about a teenage girl fighting to protect the last working well in a drought-stricken valley. Mixing post-apocalyptic action with classic western conventions, the film is beautifully shot and directed by production designer Tom Hammock, whilst boasting an incredible performance from 20 year old Haley Lu Richardson.

At the edge of an expansive barren valley, all that remains of The Wallace Farm for Wayward Youth is a few hollowed-out husks of buildings. Seventeen-year-old Kendal (Richardson) can barely recall when the Oregon valley was still lush.
It’s been a decade since the last rainfall, and society at large has dried up and blown away. Kendal and the few others that remain barely scrape by, while dreaming of escape. When a greedy water baron lays claim to what little of the precious resource remains underground, Kendal must decide whether to run and hide or bravely fight for the few cherished people and things she has left.
We like it because:
The Last Survivors draws on some classics of cinema, part Mad Max, part Spaghetti Western, the film delivers on action and thrills throughout. Haley Lu Richardson is phenomenal, and at 20 delivers a performance of such verve and maturity that it is impossible not to be drawn in. The film is both thrilling and beautiful to look at, largely down to director Tom Hammock’s Graphic novel and production design background. A real gem of a film.
If you like You’re Next and The Guest then this one is well worth adding to your collection.
