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.

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.Read more ›

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!!!
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.
