Product Description

When a group of five girlfriends heads for the tropics, they relax, hit the beach and step out for a night of partying. All is fun and games, until someone gets hurt. Robbed by their tour guide and left for dead, the girls take shelter in an old abandoned resort. Their high hopes for safety are soon destroyed when an ancient evil is unleashed in this haunted haven. This vacation might have been the time of their lives, but The Last Resort will most likely be the time of their death.

For best friends Sophia, Jessica, Beth, and Amber, one little night of drunk debauchery isn't enough for their bride-to-be friend Kathleen - no, they head off to Mexico for an entire week of bachelorette party fun. As you might expect, their party time soon turns into a nightmare, as four of them (minus the one that hooked up with some guy the night before) are driven out into the desert, robbed by their "tour guides," and abandoned in the middle of nowhere. With one of their number shot, the girls hole up in an old abandoned resort and hope that their other friend will be able to find and rescue them. They have no idea that their "last resort" is so tainted with evil that the locals refuse to go anywhere near the place.

It's not that easy to go wrong with a film built around attractive young women drinking and partying, but director Brandon Nutt and the three script writers manage to do just that. Except for the one girl being separated from the group early on, the story plays out quite predictably all the way through the final frame. We really don't see enough of what happens to the girls that night in the resort, either. Yes, we know how the cursed resort affects them, but no one even bothers to explain how it happens. We don't really get to know these characters very well, either - in fact, I had trouble remembering which girl was which at the end of the movie. As far as the acting is concerned, though, I don't think it's all that bad given the film's estimated budget of $155,000 - it's at least competent, anyway. It's pretty clear the filmmakers didn't invest in the most advanced video equipment, though.

The Last Resort probably appeals most to horror fans, but there's really not much here for a horror fan to enjoy.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't let the hottie on the cover fool you... Nov. 5 2009
By TheOneTrueHorrorFan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
This movie is absolutely horrible...and that is saying a lot coming from me!!! But the acting was atrocious and the plot was weak at best. I understand that you are not looking for a great plot and top shelf acting in a horror movie, but the majority of horror movies have passable acting and at least a basically decent storyline. Not the case here...

Bottom line...Do not rent, purchase or view this movie!!! Not if all the other movies were gone and this was the last option...This warning warrants repetition...Under no circumstances should you watch this movie...not even if it is...THE LAST RESORT!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Not Even Worth a $1 Redbox Rental Aug. 27 2009
By Cory T. Shaeffer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
This is about as bad as it gets, folks.

There is nothing in the line of horror, suspense, or plot that is offered up in this pile of trash...it is a complete waste of celluloid.

The acting, if you could call it that, makes Paris Hilton's acting look worthy of an Oscar. The dialogue is full of absurd, banal one-liners that try to be hip and funny, but they are not funny and the phrases have not been hip since about 1996. The directors and screenwriters clearly attempted to remake "Wolf Creek" and combine it with "Turistas." Their attempts to add humor into the mix falls flat.....and after watching it, one wonders why there is even a picture of a woman in a bikini on a beach gracing the cover art when the entire film takes place in the middle of a desert in Mexico.

1.0 out of 5 stars The Dregs Aug. 20 2009

It really is terrible--thin plot, ridiculous circumstances--the girls are foul-mouthed and not sympathic; the villians are even worse. I love horror, but this is just TRASH. Sure sounded good before I bought it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Have we really resorted to this? Jan. 25 2013
By walletboyniac - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Four lady friends throw their girlfriend a bachelorette party in Mexico. They go to a club and get hammered. Sophia hooks up with a guy, and misses out on the sightseeing tour the other women go on. Their "tour guides" wind up robbing them and stranding them in the middle of nowhere. The only place of refuge is an old abandoned resort. This place is bad news, brother. It turns everyone into a homicidal maniac. There is some half-arsed history to the place, which is told through flashbacks, but does it make sense? Not particularly. Everyone is supposed to be "free." All of the men in this film are stupid sex and booze-driven a-holes. Or criminals. One character just disappears. There's a tussle, then he's gone. The Last Resort is 75 minutes long, including a heavily padded 6 minutes of credits. Is there anything that Lionsgate won't put their name on? I've been wondering this for a while.

1.0 out of 5 stars Definitely the last resort! March 8 2010
By PR GUY - Published on Amazon.com

I'm as mad as Hell and I'm not going to take it anymore! This inept piece of ^%$& is ruining the horror film genre'. More and more we are introduced to worthless films like this and we may get lucky and enjoy one-out-of-five now and then. I'm glad I paid $1.99 for this and didn't spend twice that for a rental or 10 times that for a new copy. Everyone involved in this film...from the director (it had one?) to the stars (it had some?) should get a real job. This is definitely a last resort for horror fans.
